max and kate

Kate is planting zucchini in a raised garden bed. Charlie and Max help dig holes for the baby plants. “I see three garden heroes,” says Kate's daddy.

No party hats.” Just then—vvm! Hummingbird zoomed into Owl’s home. “Hi,” said Hummingbird. “Whatcha doing? Writing? Lemme see. A party? I love parties! Let’s have a party now!” “The party is next week,” replied Owl. “And a proper party requires plenty of planning. For decorations, I shall choose the perfect pine cones, the best bark strips . . .” “And flowers!” said Hummingbird. “I love flowers. Got any? You need flowers. Lots of flowers, right?…
