Product Description


Unlike other children's books, this one talks to children, not their parents. Vibrant copy and zany illustrations will excite kids about digging in the dirt, planting, making special projects, and loving nature. It includes 38 tested and approved projects for young gardeners aged 6 to 14 years. More than 50 illustrations energise the book. All projects include around-the-house materials. It teaches how to create garden spaces - from a recycled pop bottle planter to a raised garden bed. Long-term projects are paired with short-term crafts. Step-by-step instructions and illustrations, plus colour photographs of finished projects are provided.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensize Gardening Fun for Kids 8 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
The book has it all covered. From the basics and safety to creating flower or vegetable projects. Each project has a list of items you need and step-by-step instructions. In some cases you'll also see a piece on what to expect next. Projects are environmentally friendly due to the recycling of items that are typically thrown away. Plant zones and what grows best in a zone will help the young gardener.
The colorful illustrations as well as pictures add to the overall appeal to kids. Each project is also identified with a skill scale so they (you) can easily tell when they may need adult help or supervision.

2.0 out of 5 stars too simple 28 Aug 2009
By JBArtistic.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
I was looking for something that would be simple to understand but actually teach the basics of gardening the hows and the whys of certain things along with some projects to try. I felt it was all projects without any supporting knowledge that a child could apply to projects they make up on their own. This is good for a younger child but not one that really wants to learn how to be a gardener.

Great book and projects for kids! I bought one to do projects with my Brownie troop -- then went back and bought two for my kids' teachers! Very kid friendly, uses materials that are common and great illustrations!

I bought this book after borrowing it from the library. It is an excellent resource, but the binding tends to break.
