Hello! I'm Henry the Heron here in the Perry's garden with all my critter friends playing laughing and learning some of life's lessons along the way.
Baby Carrots: Carrots of Wisdom for Little Ones is full of our stories. Mr. Duck and Baby Squirrel learn the magic of a simple hug. Raven one of the resident chickens realizes that her wings ARE wonderful and learns to appreciate them. All the little birds discover that making quick judgments about other critters is a bad idea. So come on over!
Take a seat next to the chickens squirrels turkeys lizards frogs turtle and all the birds and let us share some of our favorite stories with you.
A portion of the proceeds from every copy of Baby Carrots: Carrots of Wisdom for Little Ones sold goes to Shepherd's Gate Shelter for Women and Children in Livermore CA.
