NP-1 Working with the Director and the Children’s Librarian at a local library, Club members will help the children to make a project related to a story that will be read to them. The Saved Seeds (by Brenda Moore, National Garden Clubs, Inc.) is an early reader book written to help young children to understand the life cycle of seed plants. The Save Seeds follows the journey of a smiling pumpkin seed from a Halloween pumpkin through the year becoming a seedling, a vine and then a new pumpkin. Frightened Frog (by Brenda Moore and Jean Ohlmann, National Garden Clubs, Inc.), another early reader book, emphasizes environmental factors that negatively affect amphibians.
