In the Library


in the garden whos been here How is your garden growing? Isn’t it amazing how quickly plants grow once sprouted? I love to go out to our garden to see what changes took place while I was away.      

This last week Sonia ordered a book from the library called In the Garden: Who’s Been Here? by Lindsay Barrett George. The story is about two children who go out to the garden to pick vegetables for their mother but find more than just vegetables. They find traces of others who had been to the garden before them. “Who’s been here?” ends each page so that when the child turns the next, it opens up to a two-page illustration of the animal who was there—chipmunk, tomato hornworm, cottontail rabbit, slug, crow, deer mouse, woodchuck, mole, and…well, you’ll just have to read the book to see who was there last. This book is an easy read book with nice, large illustrations. The last page of the book contains illustrations and descriptions of animals that visit vegetable gardens.
