Call No. E DID

Marcy and Miss Rosa start a campaign to clean up an empty lot and turn it into a community garden.

City Green by DyAnn DiSalvo-Ryan

This is a good book and I enjoyed reading it. It was about a girl who likes to grow plants and she plants them in the empty lot next to her house. The lot is empty because the old house that was there before, was knocked down. I liked it because the pictures were good and I have a friend called Macy. This is the name of the main character. I think this book would be good for children of about 7 or 9 years old.

I really enjoyed reading this book because it was exciting. It was about a little girl called Marcy. She had a friend called Rosa and together they used to plant flowers. This time they planted flowers on the lot that was empty. Then all the neighbours helped. Then the flowers grew and everyone was happy. Then it was the end. I liked this story because it was about a girl called Marcy. I know a girl called Marcy too. She is nice. I liked this book because the pictures were good and they helped me to imagine what the story was about. I liked the book because it had a happy ending and this is my type of story. I would recommend this book for girls who are around 8 years old.

If you are looking for a story with inspiring characters, look no further than “City Green” It is about a girl called Marcy, her Mama and friend Miss Rosa. These ladies are true risk takers with great enthusiasm. They decide to make their neighbourhood more attractive when one of the older buildings is knocked down. They go to the council to try and take action, and before they know it, they have changed the lives of one of the grumpier neighbours forever. Read this story to find out how Marcy and her friends help to change lives. I felt moved by this story as I thought Marcy was such a young girl, but even though she was small, she could still make a difference. I feel like that when I do small things in school like help Blue Dragon or buy cookies from a fund raising bake sale. The whole way through I wondered why one of the characters was sad and unhappy. It really made me wonder what had made him so miserable. By the end of the book, I think I figured it out. See if you can solve the reasons why people change too. Marcy is a very keen gardener. The pictures in the book are bright with lots of colourful flowers. I’ve never had a garden before, but I recon I could plant some seeds in a coffee can just like Marcy did and enjoy watching them grow. I think this book would suit anyone who enjoys reading about interesting characters and people who want to help each other. I know it’s about a girl, but I think this book would appeal to most readers between the ages of 7 to 9. Give it a go and see what a difference you can make.
