From the Publisher:
Helped by her father, a young girl prepares a flower garden as a birthday surprise for her mother.
A girl and her father go to the store to buy plants, soil, and a window box for a flower garden that's going places: from the store, to the shopping cart, on the bus ride home, and up the stairs to become a colorful birthday surprise for the little girl's mother.
