This week Kim will be reading “My Garden” by Kevin Henkes. Kim loves reading and gardening and is thrilled to be able to see these two passions come together for the PCEI’s first Summer Storytime this season. When her nose isn’t buried in a book (or a flower), she can often be found penning her own tales.




Featured Book: “My Garden” by Kevin Henkes

A girl helps out in her mother’s garden, but in the garden of her imagination, there are chocolate rabbits, tomatoes as big as beach balls, flowers that change color, and seashells. How does your garden grow?

After Storytime, Kim will be taking the children on a scavenger hunt around the Nature Center! At each of the stops along the way, they will pick up supplies to use to plant their own, tiny gardens!
