As predicted in the previous post, I visited Newton Community Farm twice during the last 2 weeks, reading my picture books with animal characters and running games and crafts with groups of campers. The first week was great fun…
On week 2, the weather was warmer, but that wasn’t the only thing that was different…
I asked the campers if they named the farm chickens. “Yes,” they said.
“What’s this one’s name?” I asked.
“That’s Alfred,” one of the campers informed me.
The camp director whispered to me, “They’re all females.”
It was a super fun visit, plus I went home with fresh farm-grown lettuce and tomatoes and an idea for a new story!
