Bring your own reusable bucket and garden gloves, and be sure to have a hat, sunscreen, closed-toe shoes, and water to drink (preferably in a reusable bottle).

What's Ms. Barbara reading?
The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America, by Richard Rothstein
"Along with her contemporaries Ellen Tarry and Ezra Jack Keats, Gyo [Fujikawa] made books that opened the door for today's conversations about diversity. She started with an empty white page and a wish for a bigger, better world and laid out a whole dream--inviting publishers, teachers, readers, future writers, and illustrators to imagine a more inclusive future."
--It Began With a Page: How Gyo Fujikawa Drew the Way, written by Kyo Maclear and illustrated by Julie Morstad
