The gorgeous illustrations on every page of this book make learning about nature simple and fun. While children do fun indoor and outdoor plant and garden activities, they will glean important lessons about natural cycles and processes. Bravo to Brooklyn Botanic Garden for publishing this great guide!

Gardening with Children is a must have for families with children that would like to garden. It has a large number of ideas that can make gardening fun for the children (and the parents too). I bought the book after a favorable review in AHS's The American Gardener. I wish I would of had it when my children were small but they are grown. I plan to buy several more copies for Christmas for my children's families and gardening friends that have small children. I would also recommend it to pre-school and school-age programs that would like to introduce children to hands-on nature and science.

This book is exciting. It concisely takes you through projects that are perfect for children, involving their intellect and motor skills while having a fun time. The illustrations and text encourage the busy teacher/parent/volunteer to start setting up shop.

I'm a Garden Designer in the NY Metro area. One of my personal objectives, when working with a family, is getting the children outdoors more, and getting them to take a personal interest in the garden. For young children, a container planted with strawberry plants makes a terrific summer project. Slightly older kids, a bird-feeding project.

On several occasions I've given this BBG Handbook as a gift to my clients, in hopes that a "family" approach to garden projects will keep the interest going.

Great ideas. Good Artwork. The instructions weren't always the easiest to follow though for my wife (who's more of a beginning gardener).
