A Child’s Garden by Michael Foreman is a poignant picture book that highlights conflict, courage, harmony and integrity.
In an environment of war and poverty, a home is turned into rubble. “Then, one day, soldiers came and destroyed everything.” But a boy sees hope in a small green shoot growing towards the sun and gently encourages the plant to grow, creating a garden of hope. “The new garden became home once more to birds and butterflies. Let the soldiers return, though the boy. Roots are deep and seeds spread.”
