EMWF KIDS: What Grew in Larry’s Garden

Presenters: Author Laura Alary and illustrator Kass Reich
Ages: 4 to 7 (but gardeners of all ages are welcome!)

This event will include ASL Interpretation.

Grace thinks Larry’s garden is one of the wonders of the world. In his tiny backyard next door to hers, Larry grows the most extraordinary vegetables. Grace loves helping him — watering and weeding, planting and pruning, hoeing and harvesting. And whenever there’s a problem — like bugs burrowing into the carrots or slugs chewing the lettuce — Grace and Larry solve it together. And when that garden faces its biggest problem yet, Grace follows Larry’s example to find the perfect solution.

Learning themes: Generosity, community activism, care for the environment, life science exploration of growth and changes in plants. There are education connections to caring, cooperation, empathy, kindness, perseverance, and teamwork.
