    There were a few good ideas in this book but for the most part it wasn't really what I was looking for. if you are thinking about starting a gardening program with kids this is probably not the book for you. In fact, I would venture to say that less than half the book is actually about gardening. And aside from that fact, all of it is for someone that has already established a garden.

    This book is a beautiful gem of a book. It is going to be our guide for our summer homeschool. I love the ideas, the pictures, everything. It is a delightful read and magical book. Definitely a new classic for us as far as creative play projects go.
