Book Recommendations: Picture Books
Are you as excited about "digging into reading" this summer as I am?
I love a themed story time, so I put together a short list of picture books about gardening and digging.
|First Garden by Robbin Gourley is a history of gardens at the White House. Although it's pretty text heavy, it includes some yummy sounding recipe and could peak the interest of your young gardener!|
|My Garden by Kevin Henkes describes a young girl's dream garden. Although yours is probably not quite as exotic, this title and its bright illustrations is sure to spark your child's imagination!|
|Think worms are icky? Well, the narrator of Diary of a Worm by Doreen Cronin is a worm who is busy learning all about the good parts -- and gross parts -- of worm-hood.|
