Wine Country

Sonoma
Your children won't be tasting those California wines, but don't leave them at home – the wine country has plenty of fun things to do with kids. Head outdoors to state and regional parks, or explore curiosities such as geysers, a petrified forest. Dip into 19th century California, Sonoma mission, pioneers, writers Robert Louis Stevenson and Jack London. This fertile land also produces fresh fruits and vegetables, honey and jams, a cornucopia in the local farmers markets.

The Grapes Grow Sweet
Lynne Tuft, Tessa DeCarlo

All summer Julian tasted sour grapes, but now he and his sister can hide amidst the vines, they're so heavy with grapes. When the grapes are sweet as jam, it's time to harvest. A lovely introduction to growing grapes on a family vineyard, with wonderful illustrations! (Picture book)
