Gardening and Reading
Astoria Library holds a weekly Summer Reading Program; children from the age 5 and up are welcome to join. (The summer reading program requires you to sign up with Mrs. Sofia, so we may would be able to know what reading level you’re at). Books are picked out according to reading level, while the children are assigned to a group according to their reading level. One of the books read was The Imaginary Garden by Andrew Larsen, (donated by the Read & Seed Club). The children read a book about how an imaginary garden came to be with just Theo’s love and the help of Poppa. The children later on answered a questionnaire, so we know that they not only just read, but they are able to apprehend what they read.
