Side A

What's in the Garden?
Before the Story

Tell me what you see in this picture. I see three ears on this cover, do you? (A little humor is always good to get eveyone’s attention!) Corn grows in a garden; what else grows in a garden? To find out, we need to answer a riddle on each page!

During the Story

Read the first riddle and give children a chance to guess the answer. The page with the answer is full of information. Can the children point to the apple tree? The apple the boy is biting is very juicy. How can you tell?

When you have apples at home, do you pick them off the apple tree? Where do you get them?   On the second and third reading of this book, ask children to be on the lookout for all the living things that are shown on the drawings.

After the Story

If you had a garden, what would you plant? Why? Do you know anyone who has a garden?  What kind of tools do you need to start a garden? What else do you need? Let’s invite someone who has a garden to our class. What questions would we ask?
