HASH(0x9fedee10) out of 5 stars Wonderful book for elementary school kids! Oct. 4 2012
By Twist - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book to give away to one of my graduating third grade students as a prize for "Most Successful Gardener" (she'd carefully tended - and sang to, evidently - a cabbage all summer, without the inducement of being graded for the project). I chose this book because it is very child-friendly, without being too simplistic or patronizing. I also heard from the young lady's grandmother that it gave her terrific ideas for projects to do with her entire family. The student said she most enjoyed using the recipes - all by herself!

I'd certainly recommend this book. I'm planning on getting another copy for myself to use in class.

I really bought this for myself (grandma). I will of course share with the grandkids too. I has fun information and projects I never had heard of before.
It was the right price, came quickly, and in excelent condition. It was even more fun than I had expected. I have never had a problem with an Amazon purchase.

In my science class at the high school level (students with cognitive disabilities) we have been growing plants each of the four years I have been their teacher. I am excited and greatly looking forward to using this book to support our learning about plants and putting that knowledge to practical use.
