Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
This introduction to container gardening feature directions for projects divided into spring, summer, fall, and winter. A brief introduction encourages gardening as a way of spending quality time with a youngster and learning valuable life lessons. A general discussion on parts of plants and growing zones follows with some suggestions on design and supplies needed. The spring section provides numbered directions for seed starts, garden bowls, hanging baskets, and a potted fountain project. Summer includes a butterfly garden in a pot, a salad bowl, a worm box and a sculpture called pot people. Fall includes cocktail gardens using moisture crystals, bulbs and pansy planters, an amaryllis in a pot, and a Halloween hat. Winter features a garden aquarium, a succulent garden, a Venus fly trap terrarium, and a sand art terrarium. Each project lists the supplies needed, step by step instructions, and helpful hints accompanied by plenty of photos of kids in the process of making the project. Most projects will need adult help or supervision. The print could be larger for elementary-aged children and some of the directions contained too much information. A glossary of terms and directions for making cement stepping stones are included. Reviewer: Meredith Kiger, Ph.D.
