Books on teaching gardening to children are hard to find. This book features large print and language suitable for children themselves. If you want something for children to read themselves, this would be the book. Young Gardener features month by month descriptions of what might be going on in your garden and what to look for and do. This is a British book, so you may need to adjust the timing to suit your hardiness zone. This book is very helpful if you are teaching gardening to children at times other than spring and summer.
