A family.
A house.
A neighborhood.
A place to play.
A place to feel safe.

Little by little, baby Tracy grows. She and her neighbors begin to rescue their street. Together, children and adults plant grass and trees and bushes in the empty spaces. They paint murals over old graffiti. They stop the cars. Everything begins to blossom.

In Jeannie Baker's striking, natural collages, an urban community reclaims its land. A drab city street becomes a living, thriving neighborhood -- a place to call home.

Another beautifully crafted book my Jeannie Baker. As with her other books, the story is told in pictures - as time goes by, baby Tracy grows and we observe her garden and neighbourhood transforming through her bedroom window, as well as Tracy's transformation from baby to child to teenager to adult.
Little by little, Tracy and her neighbours turn their gardens into oases filled with native plants and as the plants grow, so does the spirit of pride throughout the neighbourhood.
Together, the children and adults replant vacant lots, paint murals over graffiti, reduce traffic and their world begins to blossom. Community is reclaimed and the neighbourhood becomes a home.
