Children's Literature Comprehensive Database - Marilyn Courtot

"Three girls who live near each other are friends and often go to the park to play. Each one has a special talent--Jade likes to paint, Olive likes to garden, and Kelly likes to build things. The park’s director, Mrs. Moss, asks the girls to come up with a project idea for Citizenship Week, but first she has to define citizenship. They can only pick one project, but what will it be since each has an idea based on her skills? Mrs. Moss reminds the girls that they need to come up with one project on which they can agree. They decide to plant a flower garden and make a bench, and they prepare a sign to let others in the neighborhood know what is planned. Soon, Saturday arrives and the trio nervously awaits the arrival of helpers--much to their joy, a number of neighbors arrive to work on making the park a nicer place. There is a short list of other books to read and safe web sites provided by FactHound. Part of the “Read-It Readers: Character Education: Citizenship” series, this green level title presents complex ideas, an extended vocabulary, and varied sentence structure." - Children's Literature Comprehensive Database
