Summary

Summary

For ages 9 to 12 years. Here is a gardening book for everyone! If you are someone who lives where there is no space to garden outside you can create a Kitchen Scrap Garden, a Fast Food Salad Garden. Alternatively, if you are happy with dirt to dabble in, you can grow an edible tepee of pole beans, nasturtiums, and sweet peas. Along with these projects, this book covers gardening basics, garden philosophies, and how to create your special flower garden.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-5‘This "Anytime Anyplace Guide" tries to do too much, thereby sacrificing depth, clarity, and focus. In a zippy style, and with black-line drawings, the authors give sketchy directions for making a plant person with grass hair; tips for planting according to the position of the moon; the parts of a plant; experiments; recipes; and little bits of much, much more. Gardening is difficult enough with the best of directions, but leading readers to expect fast and easy results without much clarity is a disservice to hopeful beginners. Marc Brown's Your First Garden Book (Little, 1981) is a playful and much more helpful indoor-outdoor guide. Marjorie Waters's The Victory Garden Kids' Book (Globe Pequot, 1994) is a fine, clear outdoor gardening inspiration for slightly older readers.‘Carolyn Jenks, First Parish Unitarian Church, Portland, ME (c) Copyright 2010.
