I love gardening with my little girl. There is so much to learn, experience, and observe. A family garden provides more than just food, abundant early learning opportunities, practical life skills and motor development are just a few important life skills children learn by watching and interacting with a garden space.
Watch a short vlog as we walk through our garden!
Oh Say Can You Seed? by Bonnie Worth is a fun tale told by Dr Seuss’ character, the one and only, Cat in the Hat. He leads two children through the wonderful world of a flowering plant. They discuss the life cycle, basic plant biology and provide many relatable examples that children will see in their daily life.
This book is part of the Cat in the Hat’s Learning Library which evidently are not all actual Dr. Seuss books but do carry on with his style of rhymes and use many of the same characters. Thing One and Thing Two make a special guest appearance!
We really enjoyed learning about the biology of our garden plants! Our big bean sprouts (just like the ones in the book) go into a recycled tin can. The smaller ones are transferred to egg cartons.
We planted until sunset.
Oh Say Can You Seed? is a great garden companion to colorfully illustrate useful knowledge about gardens and flowering plants. Read it in the garden or bring a bit of the outside in by reading it in a cozy indoor book nook.
