this will be a gift for my grandson when he turns one this august. with it, he will receive some bulbs and a bulb planter that i suspect his father (my son) will use to "help" plant the bulbs in their new backyard. i wanted to give the gift of nature and earth and dirt and memory, and this book does all of that. it is beautiful and just the colors alone would make for a great book to enjoy over and over. but the book is informative enough to entice everyone into wanting to plant seeds and bulbs and then wait for the colors to grow. each year i will give a few more bulbs at his birthday so he can plant more flowers and then wait through our long winter to watch for the blooms to appear. this is the perfect book!
