Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Let writer and gardener Jeff Hutton show you and your kids how to grow your own food and your favorite flowers, attract butterflies, create crafts, and more. Teach your children how to start garden seeds indoors as well as how to prepare soil, plant seeds, and transplant seedlings. Additionally, there are over a dozen fun recipes and instructions for making stepping stones, decorating egg carton planters, planting a sunflower maze, and much more. Parents and children are sure to have a blast in the garden all year round!

Review:

"This new guide for children from landscape designer and author Hutton (Inside Out: The Art and Craft of Home Landscaping) suffers because it tries to do too much. It's best when presenting simple activities and crafts, such as growing popcorn or making rain gauges. A whole book of these engaging and easy-to-execute activities would have been a real resource to parents trying to share their love of the garden with children. Unfortunately, beyond these projects, the book is chaotic, incomplete, and unsure of its audience. Rather than focusing on small-scale gardening with easy-to-cultivate, child-pleasing plants, the author provides scattered ecology lessons, random plant listings, hard-to-follow cultivation advice, and a visually uneven mix of photos and artwork. This guide is a missed opportunity to introduce children to the joys of gardening. Full-color photos and illus. throughout." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
