Format: Paperback
I picked up this book at the library last summer along with a bunch of other herb books. I don't think I ever opened the other ones up at all. I renewed this book three times, copied the recipes and advice to notecard form, and I finally bought my own. It is the *best* introduction to herbalism I have found yet. It is written for kids but adults can benefit from it just as much, if not more. This book is full of love and awe for plants and their special properties. I think it would be a great book to give to a child-it has a gazillion things kids can do with herbs, and I think it would really open children's senses to the "secret life of plants" (another great book-recommended reading at the end of this one). A large part of the book explores 16 different herbs and in the process teaches the basics of herbalism from salves to tinctures to capsules and more! Everything described is very easy to do and effective as well (& fun! :) ) Other chapters explore kitchen herbs, flowers, gardens, and it is full of some great references as well. I have *tons* of books on herbalism now but this was the catalyst for my interest and will always be my personal favorite. This would be a great reference for a super cool science teacher as well.

WOW! I got this book for my kids, and they had to wrestle it away from me to get a peek! It is fun, clearly written and beautifully illustrated. It's a wonderful introduction to herbs for both kids and adults. Lots of recipes for tinctures, syrups, poultices, powders and more; along with lore and some really fun stories about the individual plants. I only wish we were a musical family so we could enjoy the songs!

This is an excellent introduction to herbal medicine, the plants studied here are perfect specimens for beginners. The book is filled with great activities, stories, songs.

Some activities however should definitely be supervized by adults - from making sure the plant picked is the right one to boiling water and the use of certain materials. Furthermore, it is also important for an adult to be present because this is still a book about taking plant to resolve problems like fever and cough - it's a medicine book and so the presence of an adult should be required. I would highly encourage this book to be used as an activity book for the family, and the ideal age for kids to appreciate it is around 12.

bought this book for my 12 year old daughter. It's well written, with recipes for herbal medicine and background info for some herbs. Very nice illustrations of the herbs but I would have preferred real pictures so it is easy for a child to identify the fresh herbs. Still this book gets 5 stars because my daughter loves it. She into preserving nature and protecting the planet and wants to be a herbalist, so her dad and I thought she would love this book and sure enough it was hit. She even takes it to school to show it of to her friends.

This book teaches kids about very bad substances and should not be distributed. This book should be used for adults who smoke the plant, and will be usefull for them because this explains the effects of the plant on a persons high
