Acceptance and sharing is a great life skill to teach young children. In this story, a Chinese little girl is planting a garden with her mom. Soon, she notices that her garden is different from the rest of the neighborhood and she begins to ask her mother why they cannot grow flowers instead of vegetables. In the end, the whole neighborhood envies their Chinese garden and the wonderful soup they made with the vegetables. This is a great story about unity and shows how different cultures can join together to learn from one another. Also, at the end of the story there is an educational page about the Chinese vegetables and what their names mean. A diverse, educational read!
