Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf
by Lois Ehlert

There’s more to a maple tree than meets the eye. From seed to tree, this special maple went through a wonderful journey to grow into the beautiful tree that stands in its place today. After reading the story, we’ll have a snack of maple leaf cookies, take a walk through the forest at the National Park and make lovely leaf crowns to wear! 

September 21st  

Ten Red Apples
by Pat Hutchins

There are ten red apples hanging on the tree. Until the farm animals come by for a snack that is…will there be any apples left for the farmer at the end of the day? We’ll find out by reading the story, then enjoy eating our own delicious red apples, visiting the apple orchard on site, and making an apple craft.

Pumpkin Jack
by Will Hubbell

Tim carves the perfect pumpkin and names him Jack. Jack smiles over the Halloween festivities, but eventually he begins to rot. Tim brings Jack out to the garden and watches as he changes and is eventually covered in snow. When spring returns, Tim sees something exciting where he left Jack—a sprout! We’ll visit the pumpkins growing in our garden, make a pumpkin craft, and enjoy a tasty pumpkin bread snack.
