Published by: Neal Porter Books/Roaring Brook Press, an imprint of Macmillan Children's Publishing Group

First-time author Fogliano shares the excitement that goes hand in hand with planting the first seeds of spring. After months of snow, a boy and his dog agree that enough is enough, and decide to plant a garden.
