My School Yard Garden by Steve Rich

This colorful book takes students on a ramble through a school yard garden - past the seeding beds, along the compost bin, and over to the bird house and bird bath. Along the way, children learn what insects, animals, and plants need to thrive and discover the fun of observing and recording it all. My School Yard Garden proves you can learn a lot from a garden, no matter where it grows.
