Watch and wait, hopeful seeds seem to whisper, but of course the hardest thing about gardening is patience. As a little boy and his dog bide their time, fretting over their fledgling garden, winter browns give way to the lush greens of spring and a bountiful harvest. This satisfying picture book, illustrated by none other than the 2011 Caldecott medal-winning Erin Stead (A Sick Day for Amos McGee), reminds even the most impatient of snow bunnies that brighter days are just waiting to bloom.
