Miguel’s Community Garden by JaNay Brown-Wood is a delightful read-aloud and full of talking points and teaching opportunities. Miguel is throwing a party in his community garden and would like some sunflowers. Go with him to identify sunflowers and in the process learn about all sorts of things that grow in the garden.
