The azaleas are blooming and the sweetgums are budding. What am I reading for World Read Aloud Day?
How Groundhog’s Garden Grew by Lynne Cherry, of course!
No quibbles about what her books do. Cherry uses voice, metaphor and story structure to engage readers’ curiosity about the garden as an ecosystem. Beautiful watercolor illustrations add to a brilliantly researched narrative.
Where can you find How Groundhog’s Garden Grew in the library?
Try the 600s, but this book won’t be in the nonfiction stacks. How about the picture book section at E Che?
Happy World Read Aloud Day!
