Marshmallow Mondays


Spring Picks

Now that Spring is here, we thought we’d share our picks to help celebrate green grass, blooming flowers, sunny skies, and growing gardens.  Meet a boy who grows flowers all over his body, watch the harvesting of a gigantic root vegetable, learn what grows in the garden, meet a vegetarian dragon, experiment with your own backyard garden, and learn the lifecycle of a seed.

Climb to the top of Lonesome Mountain to meet a very special boy named Rink — every full moon, he grows flowers all over his body. This heartwarming story celebrates difference and friendship, as Rink meets a girl with her own secret, and they discover ways to help each other.  Ages 1-4.

Find out what happens when the old woman, the old man, and all twenty-one animals on the farm try to harvest a rather large root vegetable. This well-loved Russian tale uses humor, counting and repetition to appeal to beginner readers.  Ages 3-7.

In this delightful peek-a-boo book, children are invited to look through the holes on every other page to answer the repeating refrain, “Who’s coming to see how my garden grows?” The energetic, rhyming text introduces all sorts of creatures that are busy in the garden.  Ages 1-4.

Meet Herb, a dragon who knows how to stay true to his values even in the stickiest of situations. When he is captured by the castle’s knights in armor, vegetarian Herb is faced with a difficult decision: will he eat meat in order to save his own life?  Ages 4-10.

Get outside and grow with some child-friendly fun with gardening! Includes forty activities and games and an eight-page booklet that contains information on gardening tools, year-round plant care and garden safety. These step-by-step instructions are enhanced by colorful collage artwork on each double-sided card and they create a fun and easy way for budding green-thumbs to plant, investigate, learn and experiment.  Ages 8 and up.

Learn the basics of how plants grow in this bubbly, springtime story. When a young girl plants a seed, she learns she must be patient to achieve results. She is rewarded by a beautiful sunflower, and brings her flower to school to share the seeds with her entire class. Includes notes about roots, shoots, flowers and seeds.  Ages 3-7.

All of these books are part of our Barefoot Books collection.  If you’re interested in purchasing any of these titles, just email barefootbridgit@hotmail.com.  You’ll automatically receive a special springtime discount of 15% off your entire order!
