HASH(0x9ce2a870) 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.

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.

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.
HASH(0x9ce2ad74) out of 5 stars kuddos for wonderful graphic design and clear format July 4 2016
By ninsk - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is awesome! The format and design are BEAUTIFUL!!! The pictures are interesting to look at. My compliments to the graphic designer/ artist and the photographer! The gardening information is very clearly stated and very-very kid-friendly. That is it contains full enough information for a child to start planting whatever she/he chooses and yet this information is in a concise and clear format, not wordy or lengthy, without unnecessary details. My 8 -year old son picked it at the library and he was done with it in 3 days. It was easy for him to choose the chapters on the plants he was specifically interested in. Each vegetable has it's own page or two. There is also some fun info added like kid's-gardening-jokes or some interesting facts, that even I didn't know. Do you know, for example, that lettuce has some calming/sedative properties? And it was used as a remedy for soldiers during WWII? I ended up reading this book myself even though I am not completely new to gardening. I learnt some useful info.
I am going to buy this book now, rather than copying all the awesome kid-friendly recipes.
