Seeing a Harvest in Popular Culture

A list of things to plant now and enjoy in June:

1. The Grey Lady and the Strawberry Snatcher *by Molly Bang
2. “Green onions” by Booker T and the MG’s
3. Popeye’s Spinach

*This book is a beautiful wordless picture book.  Kids can “read” it on their own and tell their own story.  The grey lady is done in negative space and sometimes she disappears into the page to escape the snatcher.  The black berry brambles, mushrooms, and beech trees are exquisite.
