Marsha will read and explore at least two of the following books with your young reader or readers: Waiting for Snow, Badger’s Perfect Garden, Lost. Found., May I Come In?, Mine. Yours. The setting of each of these books is outdoors and Badger’s story focuses specifically on gardens, whether they be “perfect” or “imperfect.”


Badger’s Perfect Garden was selected by the National Junior Master Gardener Program for their 2020 Growing Good Kids Excellence in Children’s Literature Award. Lost. Found. was selected for Winterkids of Maine’s 2019 Storywalk and also for L. L. Beans’ Northern Lights’ Celebration Storywalk. Those StoryWalks combined the wonder of imagination with the benefits of reading and that’s what we’ll be doing with this walk through my stories.
