Lola Plants a Garden by Anna McQuinn

In this adorable storybook, Lola wants to plant her own garden of beautiful flowers, so she and Mommy go to the library to check out books about gardening. They choose their flowers and buy their seeds. They dig and plant. And then they wait. She finds it hard to wait for her flowers to grow, but spends the time creating her own flower book. Soon Lola has a garden full of sunflowers and invites all of her friends for cakes and punch and a story in her flower garden.
