Amazon.com Review

At the East Bay French-American School in Berkeley, California, the students and teachers grow a garden of delicious herbs and vegetables. Their curriculum includes tasting, cooking, and eating the harvest to establish a connection between the earth and daily life. This well-put-together book teaches even gardening novices how to do it, too. The book features colorful line drawings, photographs of the kids in action, delicious recipes that even five-year-olds can help prepare, and great little sidebars on subjects as diverse as "Composting," "How Flowers Drink," and how to hold a "First Sprout Party."

From Booklist

The difficulty of getting children raised in an urban environment to understand and appreciate where their food comes from presents a real challenge to teachers. The East Bay French-American School in Berkeley, California, has instituted a project to combine gardening and cooking into a learning experience for children ages 5 to 12. Students participate in planting, cultivating, harvesting, and cooking the produce of their school plots. Children are less likely to respond "Yuck!" when confronted with vegetables they have raised from seed themselves. The Brennans recount the school's success with this gardening program and catalog the most suitable plants for a children's school garden plot. A few simple recipes offer encouragement to parents with children who want to help out in the kitchen. The Brennans' work provides a useful resource for many sorts of school and library nature programs. Mark Knoblauch

Format: Paperback
This delightful book is an especially helpful tool for the beginning gardener. It will guide you and your children through all the basics of creating your very own garden. What a wonderful project for a toddler! Based on a gardening project started at the French-American School in Berkeley, California, this book will take you from planning and planting to harvesting and cooking delicious herbs and vegetables. The recipes are almost entirely vegetarian; including Herb Mayonnaise, Corn, Rice and Tomato Salad with Basil, and Snap Bean and Potato Soup with Pasta, just to name a few. Also includes a resource section for seed suppliers and more.

More of a cookbook than a book that could be used in a teaching/reading atmosphere. Well done, just not what I needed.
