The Bear’s Garden



A little girl sees an empty lot in a city and imagines what it can be. With the help of her stuffed bear, she brings her community together to create a beautiful garden.

Inspired by the true story of a community garden in Brooklyn, New York, The Bear’s Garden is a testament to how imagination can transform communities and create beauty in unexpected places.

Released on March 24, 2020, by Imprint, The Bear’s Garden is written by Marcie Colleen and illustrated by Alison Oliver. You can get a copy at your local bookshop.

“A well-illustrated, beautifully written tale of encouragement.”
