Sharing Softness

Sharing Softness

“Feel this plant, Alejandro,” says garden volunteer Pamela Van Hoozer. “It’s very soft.”

Alejandro rubs the fuzzy green leaf against his cheek.


“The plant is named after a soft animal,” Pamela says. “Can you think of a soft animal?”

“Squirrel!” Alejandro shouts. “Squirrels are soft.”

“Lambs are soft, too,” Pamela replies. “This plant is called Lamb’s Ear because it is soft like a lamb.”


“Can I have four?” Alejandro asks.

“Do you have someone you want to share with?” Pamela says.

Alejandro replies, “My grandma, my mom and my friend.”
