Alijah has planted a pea plant in an abandoned field behind the school. The only problem is the rest of the field is a mess with weeds and trash everywhere. Principal Bueno agrees that if Mr. Grizley's class can clean up the field, Alijah can save his plant and maybe even start a garden. How will the class tackle this huge project? Readers of this social-emotional-learning-focused book can enjoy a related activity at the end of the story.
