From the Publisher:
An urban African-American girl and her father buy plants, potting soil, and a window box at the supermarket, ride the bus to their apartment, and put together a colorful gift for the childs mother. Rhyming verse carries the brief story, while wonderful, warm, full-color illustrations present scenes from novel angles, and depict a loving family with a sense of intimacy, sincerity, and joy.--School Library Journal
Born in Ireland, Bunting moved to the United States in 1958 with her husband, Ed, and their three children. She began her career as a writer by taking a writing class at a local junior college. Her first book, THE TWO GIANTS, was published in 1972. In 1976, her book ONE MORE FLIGHT received the Golden Kite Award from the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.
