This book offers a wide variety of garden-related chapters, divided by months of the year. In each chapter, there is a section on plants, on planting, on crafts you can enjoy with your children, ideas for recycling everyday items into garden art, and recipes for the produce and herbs that you create in your garden. Unlike many "kid-friendly" books that you'll see, it is readily apparent that the author really has done these projects with her children and the focus is from the perspective of a child. The text is easy to read and you can "hear" the author's voice in the way she writes, and the photographs and illustrations add to the high quality of this book. I bought one for myself, and then immediately ordered another as a gift for my mother. The book is also supported by the author's website ([...]) where there are how-to videos and blogs.

Overall, a great book at a really good price.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book because I work with children and love gardening. I wanted ideas about projects that were fun and easy for children. I got all that and more. This book has garden/nature projects for every month. Often the projects use recycled materials. In addition, it has month by month ideas for garden layouts, recipes, and plant descriptions. It also features interesting and fun tips such as a list of plants that have heart shaped leaves for the month of February. The pictures are colorful and inspiring and the book is very easy to use and read. I wish I had this book when my daughter was young. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has, plays, works with, or enjoys children. Its a treasure!

I have two small children and I love the helpful ideas in this book. It is organized very nicely by month and has a ton of great projects and ideas to get the kids involved in gardening. Plus there are great recipes (my kids love to help in the kitchen!) Great for moms, teachers, grandparents, anyone!

This is such a sweet book. It has this great, wholesome, Midwestern feel that just makes you feel good. It's great for kids of all ages. It has both crafty garden projects and easy recipes. For preschool, you can pick out projects together, and then later once they're readers, let them go through it themselves and pick stuff out. Nothing intimidating or frustrating for kids (or Mom and Dad or grandparents!) and the recipes are good for kids starting out in the kitchen, both for ease of preparation and taste preferences. Fun book!

Format: Paperback
I took this book out from the library, because my parents, hubby & I, have planted a vegetable garden for the first time, other than the odd tomato plant. I've been devouring the 'net for ideas, hints, tips, tricks, recipes, etc etc, along with stalking coworkers for any advice they can give us - and our garden is doing just great! I can't wait for a bigger & better garden next year!

so, with all that in mind, I've been requesting books from the library on the subject of vegetable gardening, & I took this one out. It actually wasn't what I really expected, as it's geared more towards kids & families, but as such, it's written for beginners in mind. The book has 12 chapters, one for each month, & there are 3 catagories in each one - how to plant something, a craft activity, & a related recipe. The problem is, the craft activities aren't really related to the month, & the recipes aren't really related to that month's planting - for example, lemon cupcakes in February. I'm sure lemons are in season in parts of the US (Florida? Southern Cali?) but not in the majority of the States, I would think. The recipes do look all delicious, which for me balances out the fact that they don't fit with the months. I found most of the craft projects rather bland & boring - I can't see kids being interested in making plant markers out of rocks or decorating a shoebox to put gardening supplies in.

But all of the above is balanced with the fact that the book has great, small garden plans & very creative ideas, like a forth of July patriotic garden display, & does have some great hints & tips for beginner gardeners, & I think the fact that the book is geared towards families is a very nice idea.

Spending time outdoors has many health benefits and enhances our quality of life; however, many of us simply lack the inspiration and/or the motivation to do so. "Project Garden" provides both, in a wonderfully written, smartly illustrated, package. This reasonably priced book offers a wide-range of gardening, cooking, and craft ideas that appeal to that part - deep down inside all of us - that longs to play outside. A great addition to your family library, a perfect gift for friends, buy "Project Garden" and unlock the door to the exciting possibilities right outside your door!
