Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Veronica Bartles
Part of the "Grow it Yourself!" series, this book gives children detailed instructions to grow their own crunchy broad bean snack. Malam introduces the broad bean with a detailed description of the various types of broad bean plants and explains the requirements for growing healthy broad bean plants. Each book in the series focuses on one type of plant, to show young readers not only how to grow it properly, but how to use the plant after it's grown. In beautifully illustrated, simple terms, Malam walks beginning gardeners through the process of growing a garden. From determining where and when to plant, picking out the proper variety for your growing conditions, and sowing the seeds to caring for the young plants as they grow to maturity, children can follow the easy instructions to grow a snack of their own. Malam explains the proper way to tell when the beans are ready to harvest, and he includes a simple recipe for using the freshly-picked produce. Stunning full-color photographs complement the instructions contained in the book, allowing children of all reading levels to learn how to grow a successful garden. A glossary, index and list of resources for further research make this book the perfect resource for anyone who wants to learn to garden, anyone who has ever worried that they might not have a green thumb, or who has ever wondered where the food we eat comes from.
