It's springtime and Badger is ready to plant the perfect garden. He has spent months of hard work gathering and sorting seeds. His friends Red Squirrel, Dormouse, and Weasel have come to help. They weed. They rake. And finally they plant. Afterward, everyone celebrates, and Badger can already imagine the perfect rows of flowers and vegetables that await them. But then a rainstorm comes and washes away the beautiful seeds. Badger's perfect garden is ruined. Or is it? Author Marsha Diane Arnold's gentle story encourages young readers to think beyond plans and expectations and imagine the wonderful possibilities that may occur when life and nature have other ideas.
