EARTH DAY BOOK RECOMMENDATION: Tokyo Digs A Garden By Jon-Erik Lappano and Kellen Hatanka

by Jon-Erik Lappano 
Illustrated by Kellen Hatanaka
Groundwood Books, Anansi Press, 2016

Jacket Flap Copy: 

Tokyo lives in a small house between giant buildings with his family and his cat, Kevin. For years, highways and skyscrapers have been built up around the family's home where the wilderness once flourished. It seems they will never experience nature again. 

But one day an old woman offers Tokyo three seeds, telling them he will grow into whatever he wishes ... Author John-Erik Lappano and illustrator Kellen Hatakanaka have created a thoughtful and inspiring fable about environmentalism and imagination. 

MY THOUGHTS: Such an important book that should be shared with old and young alike. We should stop trying to take away from plants and wildlife and give back, and then we just just learn to cope with sharing the world with the rest of its creatures. 

I read this book for the very first time, TODAY, Earth Day, and was just like, WOW!!! It is a book that should be shared with the world. The author said it so well through his little picture book fable.
