Mason Goes Mushrooming Touring California!

The Primary 1 classroom at St. Helena Montessori School in Helena, California, had the pleasure to host Melany Kahn, the author of the children’s book, Mason Goes Mushrooming. The book offers an exploration of a young boy’s foraging adventures with his dog, Buddy, through four seasons and four woodland environments and is accompanied by kid-friendly recipes that take the foraged treasures from forest to frying pan. The book weaves simple science and education through playful, fungi-finding adventure. The children had the opportunity to smell and touch many different types of mushrooms and asked many questions. Parents, educators, bookstores, and librarians can find out more about Melany Kahn and the book on the author’s website.
