Garden designer Matthews packs her book with ideas for creating gardens that are interesting, entertaining, and educational for children and the young at heart. The projects are divided into the type of activity, such as active play, a place of one's own, pet-friendly areas, and gardening, and come with clearly written instructions. Additionally, clever ideas for garden parties for Easter, a summer's day, and Halloween are provided, as are safety tips. The book concludes with a look at real-life examples showing that kids' gardens can be attractive and fun. Floodgate (Your Wedding Planner) offers bedroom decorating ideas for infants up to teens. Projects range from simple, such as gluing beads to decorate a mirror, to complex, e.g., building a storage unit. There are instructions for all of the projects, but some require a few basic skills. Books like Wendy A. Jordan's The Kidspace Idea Book cover similar material, so purchase only if there is a strong interest in this subject. Gardens is recommended for all public libraries.
