I picked up this book at the library last summer along with a bunch of other herb books. I don't think I ever opened the other ones up at all. I renewed this book three times, copied the recipes and advice to notecard form, and I finally bought my own. It is the *best* introduction to herbalism I have found yet. It is written for kids but adults can benefit from it just as much, if not more. This book is full of love and awe for plants and their special properties. I think it would be a great book to give to a child-it has a gazillion things kids can do with herbs, and I think it would really open children's senses to the "secret life of plants" (another great book-recommended reading at the end of this one). A large part of the book explores 16 different herbs and in the process teaches the basics of herbalism from salves to tinctures to capsules and more! Everything described is very easy to do and effective as well (& fun! :) ) Other chapters explore kitchen herbs, flowers, gardens, and it is full of some great references as well. I have *tons* of books on herbalism now but this was the catalyst for my interest and will always be my personal favorite. This would be a great reference for a super cool science teacher as well.

WOW! I got this book for my kids, and they had to wrestle it away from me to get a peek! It is fun, clearly written and beautifully illustrated. It's a wonderful introduction to herbs for both kids and adults. Lots of recipes for tinctures, syrups, poultices, powders and more; along with lore and some really fun stories about the individual plants. I only wish we were a musical family so we could enjoy the songs!

I found this book so pleasing-- the information is very basic and well explained. The writing and illustrations are absolutely charming. For those who love stories, you'll enjoy the story for each herb opening each chapter. There are crafts, recipes, instructions on how to get started with an herb garden, and very detailed instructions on how to use herbal remedies and and create an herbal first aid kit. Even if you don't have kids, if you are interested in getting an herb garden started or working with herbs, this is a very simple, enjoyable introduction.

First let me say that I am 28. A friend and I bought this book for ourselves, as we have no children. Both of us have always been interested in learning more about herbs, but had found most herb books a bit confusing when you have no real knowledge base to begin with. We started reading this and loved it.

The explanations of the herbs are basic, yet tell you everything you need to know. We loved that the illustrations of the herbs told you what colors to use when you colored them in, and the stories were great at helping us to remember the main use of an herb.

I am now regularly using most of the herbs covered in the book and have started using other books and adding to my knowlege.

If you want to learn about herbs, still like to play and learn like a child then you will really enjoy this book. You really don't need kids to need this book!

I have about 100 books on herbs in my personal library.
I gave this kids' version to my 5 year old son for a gift and we are in LOVE with it like no other.
There are stories, facts, lessons, potions and recipes, identifiers and Mr. Greenleaf who is a loveable Gnome who leads you through this lush garden of text and illustrations.
BRAVO to this author, someone got it RIGHT!

Great for Pagan children.

I bought this one because we homeschool and my son is really into plants and such. I have to agree with the other mom who said that the kids had to wrestle it away from her! The first couple of things we found that was really fun are recipes for homemade rootbeer and marshmallows. We are totally going to try these. To be honest, we haven't gotten that far into it yet, but I have flipped through it and found so many interesting things that I can't wait to dive back into it this week with my son!

I purchased this book for my 7yo son because we do use a lot of herbs at home. He likes the book very much but my 4yo dd LOVES it! She loves making the recipes, learning about the plants and how they work, and hearing the stories. It has become her favorite book. I love the recipes as well since they are wonderful to give to children. I can't recommend this book enough.

I found this from an EarthWalk class that I sometimes volunteer for. A 4th grader showed this book to her teacher who in turn showed it to us. I wrote down the name and bought it a few days later. Why? Because it is really informative and done really really well. I'm new to the whole outdoor, edible herb thing so I feel like I could use a kid's book to help teach me (it even has sections for me to color!) :-)
