Story Time with Farmer Ben

Book: How To Eat a Peach by Karen Schaufeld.

Karen is a Loudoun-based children’s author and has written four books, including one that is perfect for summer, titled “How to Eat a Peach.” This book is about a squirrel with an unusual passion for peaches. In addition to Farmer Ben reading the story, Karen’s team will be available sharing her work.

Author’s Note
How to Eat a Peach is a story about following your passion. I loved writing this book depicting a character, Squirrel, who is not going to give up on his goal.  What a powerful message we send to children when they hear stories of determination. I also love that near the end, Girl Squirrel also achieves the same goal but attains it differently, showcasing to children that not all paths to one goal look the same. I hope that this fable (and the others) prompts questions and discussion between the reader and child.
