this was a fun month to create. i loved singing the rosemary song as i worked on the illustrations and rosemary really spoke to me drawing wise. i drew her several times in this issue, more than i normally draw an individual plant.rosemary is a lot like dandelion in that her medicine is used a lot as food (although tinctures are quite a valid form of medicine). this month, kids will learn to make an herbal vinegar, oil and honey as well as soap and shampoo! they’ll have fun creating rosemary butter and a rosemary wreath.
as usual, i’ve got lots of fun games to help kids remember all the important facts about rosemary: a crossword puzzle, maze, word search, word scramble, decipher page and matching game plus facts about rosemary and a story of how rosemary helped one little boy remember his tasks.
