Literary Lunches: Mortimer’s First Garden – Sweet Sunflowers

Mortimer's First Garden by Karma Wilson, is a great book to read in the springtime!  Mortimer, a little mouse, learns about the miracle of God’s creation through a little sunflower seed.  He finds out that with a little sunlight, water and a lot of patience something amazing transforms his one seed into many, enough to have some to share with a friend!  My boys and I read this book and then enjoyed these tasty, sweet sunflowers.    

the day I photographed these we threw on some cheerios too
but they are not necessary

mini bagel
peanut butter
1.       Spread peanut butter on the mini bagel. 
2.       Slice the banana lengthwise and then into coins to create semicircles for the petals that are then arranged around the edge of the bagel (hanging half over the edge).
3.       Fill the center of the circle with raisins.
4.       Top it off with a swirl of sweet honey and enjoy with a cold glass of milk.
