Thistles take over when people stop using the playground due to the COVID-19 restrictions. Can the students use their social media savvy to get others to help eradicate the prickly pests before the restrictions are lifted?
How will they confront Queen Bea who wants to save the thistles for the bees? Will ‘les trois amis’ conquer the prickly pests, take back the abandoned park, and prevent another COVID casualty?
This story is based on true events during the COVID-19 pandemic in the spring of 2020.
Author Barbara Fanson pulled over 320 thistles from the playground so children could eventually use the swings.
