Review: Can one little girl make a difference? When Caroline moves into her new house on Meadowview Street she finds rows of houses and flat mown lawns - and one wild flower in the middle of their lawn. She asks her dad to mow around it. She marks the one flower and soon discovers another flower, and another, and soon dad sells the mower and plants trees to provide shade for Caroline to relax in as she enjoys her "meadow" view. An environmental tale about changing city scapes with all the rows of little houses on the hillside.
