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.

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

Very Useful for Beginning Adult Gardeners/herbalists or Introducing Children to Herbs Dec 31 2005
By MSBeltran - Published on Amazon.com
I found this book so pleasing-- the information is very basic and well explained. The writing and illustrations are absolutely charming. For those who love stories, you'll enjoy the story for each herb opening each chapter. There are crafts, recipes, instructions on how to get started with an herb garden, and very detailed instructions on how to use herbal remedies and and create an herbal first aid kit. Even if you don't have kids, if you are interested in getting an herb garden started or working with herbs, this is a very simple, enjoyable introduction.

I finally found a great introductions to herbs! Aug. 21 2006
By C. M. Coleman - Published on Amazon.com
First let me say that I am 28. A friend and I bought this book for ourselves, as we have no children. Both of us have always been interested in learning more about herbs, but had found most herb books a bit confusing when you have no real knowledge base to begin with. We started reading this and loved it.

The explanations of the herbs are basic, yet tell you everything you need to know. We loved that the illustrations of the herbs told you what colors to use when you colored them in, and the stories were great at helping us to remember the main use of an herb.

I am now regularly using most of the herbs covered in the book and have started using other books and adding to my knowlege.

If you want to learn about herbs, still like to play and learn like a child then you will really enjoy this book. You really don't need kids to need this book!

BEST herb book overall Dec 28 2009
By Mama Hansen - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I have about 100 books on herbs in my personal library.
I gave this kids' version to my 5 year old son for a gift and we are in LOVE with it like no other.
There are stories, facts, lessons, potions and recipes, identifiers and Mr. Greenleaf who is a loveable Gnome who leads you through this lush garden of text and illustrations.
BRAVO to this author, someone got it RIGHT!

Great for Pagan children.
