9780871568595: Empty Lot, The

Harry Hale owns a vacant lot that he hasn't visited for years. "What good is an empty lot?" he thinks, and he makes up his mind to sell it. But when Harry visits his lot to decide on a price, he's surprised to find that it's far from empty. In fact, his little patch of land is bursting with life.

"A sweet and gentle plea for saving the earth."

--Horn Book Guide

"A provocative story that gives a clear message of conservation and brings it into focus for young audiences. . . . Arnosky's watercolor illustrations bring a freshness to the 'deserted' lot and are constant reminders of all living creatures, large and small, that share this planet."

--School Library Journal

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Harry Hale owned an empty lot. For years he had been too busy to visit the two acres of woods and meadow that had once been part of his grandfather's farm.

One day Harry sat in his office on the fortieth floor of a building in the big city, and he thought, "What good is an empty lot?"

So he ordered a sign to be put up: FOR SALE EMPTY LOT

Right away, three people wanted to buy it.

So Harry got in his car, and he drove along, long way to see the empty lot before deciding how much to sell it for.
