Booktalk #1

Mrs. McGee is talking a walk and notices a beautiful garden.  As she looks at the garden, she can't help but wonder whose garden is it.  As you will see, there is no easy answer to her question!

Booktalk #2

 Picture a beautiful garden bursting with color on a summer day. Surely the gardener working hard should take responsibility. But wait! A tiny beetle speaks out to say itís his. Then a butterfly. Even a snake? Whose garden is it, anyway? (Prepared by: Barbara Stewart Zinkovich, SCASL Picture Book Awards)
