Poppy Bear: The Garden that Overslept

Format: Book

When two curious children go in search of spring, they discover a huge bear sleeping in their garden. Poppy Bear isn't the typical bear—he has flowers and plants popping up between his paws and sprouting from his fur. Realizing that it's "half-Past spring," Poppy Bear asks the children to help him plant seeds and flowers for the new season. Infused with the real-life magic and wonder of gardening, Poppy Bear enchants readers young and old. Ruth E. Saltzman's lyrical writing springs from her wealth of knowledge and experience in the gardening field, as well as her own deep love for growing plants. This book is endorsed by the National Gardening Association.
