Lil’ Book Club hosted one more spring event on Saturday, June 4. It took place in the garden behind Flatiron restaurant.¬† They joined with their friend Sara Rubens from Seed to Sanctuary in order to connect children to the concept of “growing and changing.” ¬†They read the book, We Are Growing, by Mo Willems and Laurie Keller. Children were engaged in a lesson about the similarities of people and plants growing and changing. There was a craft, original music to sing, a gardening lesson, and each child took home a bean plant.
