Little Emma clearly enjoys being outside, drawing colourful pictures in chalk on the concrete slabs of her garden. What she’d really like though is a garden full of birds.

When a slab of concrete comes loose, she persuades her dad to take it away and we watch with her as it becomes a small patch of green, gradually sprouting with grass and flowers, attracting insects and eventually birds.

This quiet, gentle story celebrates a child’s connection with nature and the transformation that nature can bring about. Young readers will be fascinated watching Emma’s garden change and each spread is full of nature for them to spot, name and discuss. Blooming lovely!
