    Our School Garden by Rick Swann

    Our School Garden by Rick Swann


    Michael is feeling all alone in a new city and new school until Jesse, a fellow student introduced him to the school garden! Working with new friends, exploring tastes, harvesting vegetables, nicknaming
    insects, and solving garden riddles are just a few of the ways that the school garden helps Michael feel like he is growing roots. This Found Poetry style picture book is perfect for introducing a unique
    modern style of poetry while incorporating history, cooking, word study, and a love for the outdoor classroom.
