"I have a garden," a frisky dog announces. In simple sentences the dog guides new readers through a bright and lush garden, which is home to a chipmunk, a bird, a bug, and all sorts of other creatures.

"This garden is for me," the dog continues.

"No. This garden is for all of us. We have a garden," answer his animal neighbors. Illustrated in vibrant collage, this deceptively simple I Like to Read(r) book is a celebration of nature and community, plus readers can play spot the dog on nearly every spread.
