    Great gardening book for kids!!!

    I just started a garden last year with my 3 year old daughter. She was very disappointed when not everything gave fruit. I decided that this year would be different. I was looking for a book that would teach us the basics, step by step. This is that book! We love all the photos and the detailed instructions. It also gives you lots of little tips. This book is wonderful! I highly recomend it. Hope it helps you as much as it has us!
