This week the Grade 2 classes will be reading the cute fantasy tale How Groundhog's Garden Grew by Lynne Cherry. The tale tells of how Groundhog, a vegetable thief, is taught how to plant and grow a garden by his neighbor, Squirrel. During the process, we the reader learn all about how to plant and care for a garden. In the end, Groundhog has a lush garden full of food that he shares with everyone as a way to say thanks for letting him "have" their crops.
