This is a beautifully photographed guide aimed at getting children into the garden, sowing seeds, looking after their plants, and showing them how and when to harvest their produce. There are chapters on Herbs and Leaves; Potatoes, Carrots, and Onions; Zucchini and Tomatoes; Peas and Beans; and Raspberries and Strawberries. There’s nothing better or more rewarding for a child than enjoying the freshest produce that they’ve grown and tended to themselves in their own back yard they’ll be full of pride when they can make potato cakes, zucchini stir-fry, creamy spinach pasta, and strawberry cupcakes–all with the minimum help from Mom or Dad. Ages 9 and up.
