– My Garden

Written and Illustrated by Kevin Henkes


Your students will love this whimsical look at a little girl's garden and what grows there —


No weeds,

Flowers keep blooming and blooming and never die,

Flowers change colors to whatever color she thinks,

Rabbits don't eat the lettuce because the rabbits are chocolate and she eats them,

Anything she plants grows — such as jelly beans or seashells.


This is not only a fun read aloud, but it could also inspire a class book of what each child would want in his/her garden.

This is a "must-read" book for spring!
