If you want to get your family started in herbs and plant medicine and healing and natural wellness, check this book out! You won't be disappointed. Again as a homeschooling family this is also a wonderful addition to our library and "curriculum".
Obviously, because it is written for children, the book is attractive and easy to read.
Some of the advice was good for me. I went through the book and took notes on those that are most helpful to me or would have been when I was younger-those for healing or helping acne, for example. Another for colic which I didn't know of.
An example how this book was helpful to me is that I looked up some recipes and added Fennel to my fish dishes after reading about its healing properties.

16 herbs are covered in this book:
It is certainly not exhaustive, but is an excellent introduction that I, as an adult, am finding not only extremely informative, but fun. It is written for children (I would say ages 4 or 5 and on up), but not childish. The author writes in a way that respects children and their intelligence and doesn't talk down to them. It is not colourful and flashy. The author invites the child to colour in the drawings himself/herself.
The book is secular in nature and is a bit on the new-age side. For example, advice is given on how to pick herbs and the author says you should greet the plant and ask permission to pick it. If you 'feel' the plant has answered yes, you can go ahead. This is not a judgement, by the way, merely an observation of the tone of this book.
This book is organised well, is visually appealing, and makes herbs exciting! I cannot recommend this book enough.
