The Lovereading4Kids comment
A brilliantly fun and accessible guide for kids on how to grow and tend to the garden. It’s packed full of vibrant and fun ideas introducing children to lots of green-fingered activities.
It will teach children not just about how to grow vegetables but also all about healthy eating (with lots of yummy recipes) and caring for the environment. With easy to follow step-by-step instructions the book is aimed at children aged five upwards with adult supervision, then for older children up to 11 to complete on their own.
