Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2–5—Each spread is chock-full of bright color photographs and drawings. The text jumps immediately into such gardening considerations as space, time, and sunlight. Group leaders will find numerous suggestions for using recycled materials, such as creating a scarecrow from cans and lids. However, some of the ideas are not well explained, such as using a copper band or water-displacement spray (what is this?) to discourage slugs and snails, and a few projects are too complicated. Some of the plant and flower suggestions will be more familiar to a British audience, but the planter ideas are fun, especially the bowl of cacti with little plastic action figures. The doable activities mostly outweigh the flaws if you need to add to or update this area of your collection.—Frances E. Millhouser, formerly at Chantilly Regional Library, Fairfax County, VA

Love this book. We actually checked it out from the library and I liked it so much that we made it a permanent addition to our household. It's laid out very well, lots of color pictures, and awesome projects for kids to do. It's educational and fun, what better combination than that!

We found this book at the library, and we liked it so much, we're buying one! This book shows the reader how to make plant containers from just about anything, gives and explanation of the growing process w/pictures and drawings for kids, a brief but helpful list of "micro greens", how to make a floral "tepee", how to grow sprouting seeds and why they are good for you...we just love this book!

There are plenty of good ideas in this book for gardening with kids. Many of the ideas are green-friendly. A teacher or parent would make a good purchase if you are planning on gardening with children.
