Art and Gardens book Discussion for Families


Enjoy E.B. White’s classic for children in the perfect setting—the Meijers Gardens barn at Michigan’s Farm Garden, complete with Charlotte’s web! Discuss questions such as what makes a good friend and which character you identify with, then participate in acting out one of the scenes (choose a starring role or just be part of a group). Play a Web of Words game about spider misconceptions and learn about spiders as “garden helpers”. Then make your own spider web to take home.


After the program, walk out to see our enormous, 8-foot Spider by Louise Bourgeois in the Sculpture Park. Limited to 30 people, reservations required. RSVP to or call 616.975.3144.
