Big Yellow Sunflower
by Frances Barry
Explore the wonders of things that grow! A seed falls to the ground. What will it be? A variety of creatures watch the seed take root and sprout up through the soil. As we turn each page, a gigantic sunflower unfolds in a brilliant display. After reading the story, we’ll wander the Sunflower House, make a sunflower-themed craft, harvest sunflower seeds, and enjoy a snack.
Our Apple Tree
by Gorel Kristina Naslund
Take a whimsical look at the life cycle of the apple tree. With two helpful tree sprites as guides, readers travel from spring, when the apple tree blossoms, through summer, when the fruit grows, to fall and the harvest. Along the way, you’ll learn about the life of the tree and the animals that visit – from insects that pollinate the flowers to deer that eat the fallen fruit. The story will be followed by an apple themed craft and a snack.
Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall
by Kenard Pak
Join a young girl as she takes a walk-through forest and town, greeting all the signs of the coming season. In a series of conversations with every flower and creature and gust of wind, she says good-bye to summer and welcomes autumn. The story will be followed by an autumn-themed craft and a snack.
