A resourceful little girl with big ideas becomes a key part of the team when a community of family, friends, and neighbors builds a playground.
Right now there is just an empty lot down the street, but this little girl dreams that one day there will be a playground — a real playground, a fun playground — right in her own neighborhood. When she sees a man measuring the empty lot, she's sure that he's there to help make her playground dream come true. And he is! Inspired by the real story of the first-ever playground built by KaBOOM!, a national nonprofit that has helped build more than two thousand play spaces across the country, here is the tale of how a determined young girl, with the help of her family, friends, and community, makes her dreams of a playground in her own neighborhood a reality.

Henry's digital illustrations have the look and feel of watercolors, and the pages of the young girl's drawings are charmingly childlike in their detail, execution and use of imagination. … This book may inspire more than dreams. —Kirkus Reviews
The story … captures the child's excitement and could spark discussions on community engagement and teamwork. —School Library Journal
