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.

Wonderful book for elementary school kids! Oct. 4 2012
By Twist - Published on Amazon.com
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.

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.
Kids love this book. March 24 2013
