Long Description
Lead children to literacy and learning along the garden path with books and activities designed to spark interest and imagination.

In addition, this resource lists more books to read with each lesson and concludes with an annotated bibliography of focus books. A great companion to Beyond the Bean Seed. Grades K-6.
