It has been a long, hot summer. The flowers in Rosie’s garden have heaved and squeezed to make her garden look pretty. Now they are very thirsty. Where will Rosie find water for her flowers to drink?

    I was just reading your ABOUT. I saw no place to comment. How interesting! And your books look wonderful. I taught young children for years…..and years. I loved to read to them and they loved being read to. I can’t imagine a home without books. But sometimes the only place some of my students were read to was at school.

      Welcome and thank you. I know how difficult it is to look through a whole site – time has its limits and I’m equally guilty when it comes to other sites!
