Diana's White House GardenDiana’s White House Garden by Elisa Carbone
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I’d been meaning to read this after seeing on lots of other NFPB’ers reviewing it. It’s about a girl who lived in the White House during WWII. Her wanting to help out usually backfired in hilarious ways. But when the opportunity to take the lead in starting and take care of the White House’s own Victory Garden, she couldn’t resist. This is the story of the obstacles she faced and the call to action she inspired in wanting to make a difference even though she was just a kid.

Beautiful illustrations tell the interconnectedness of one ecosystem starting with a little acorn.

    Two books about growing things, but very different perspectives!

    I’ve been wanting to read Diana as well, but the library by me doesn’t have it. I’m so glad you brought it back up here because we return back home next week. Library at home has it so I’m putting it on hold! Sad to be leaving hot weather, but glad to have a better library!
