When Dad Fills in the Garden Pond

In Mom’s eyes, the garden pond is a litter trap she wants Dad to fill in to make a flower bed. But life would not be nearly so much fun! A child extolls the virtues of the family pond to convince Mom that the pond is a special place worth preserving.
Young readers will embrace the concept that no matter the age, we can influence other people to perceive beauty in their environments and that our appreciation of that environment knows no generation gap.
