Sunday Book Club: Seeds and planting

  
The first blossoming fruit trees are in full display here and so Spring is on our minds.

 This week  I gathered materials for planting some of the now rooted Maple keys around our front yard. 

  

To go along with this I rotated in some of our favourite planting books for Quentin. 

  
A Seed is Sleepy by Dianna Hutts Aston
This series is my absolute favourite nature series for children. The art is beautiful and detailed. I use it in my 3-6 class and we’ve enjoyed it here at home since Quentin was one. 

  
Grandpa’s Garden by Stella Fry
This one has been with us a long time as well. A simple story of a boy and his Grandfather through a year of organic gardening. It has tips and tricks at the back as well as a “garden map” to help you plan your design. 

  
If You Hold a Seed by Elly MacKay
I often have Elly MacKay books listed. If you’ve read them it’s easy to see why. Her style of artwork is stunning and her stories are beautifully told. This one is perfect for our Maple key planting. It tells the story of two lives: a small boy and a tiny seed. 

I’ll do another post regarding our planting. If Spring has not yet found your part of the world, take comfort in knowing that it isn’t too far off.
