In Grow Your Own For Kids, Chris Collins shows how to sow and grow 10 easy vegetables that kids love to eat. Simple step-by-step sequences will guide and inspire them; presenting fun challenges such as growing the tallest sunflower and the largest pumpkin. A "letter to the grown ups" will explain how parents and guardians can provide a garden for their kids, whether this is a container, a window box or a small plot outside. A shopping list, general advice and words of wisdom and encouragement will ensure that nothing goes wrong for those budding green fingers.
A great add-on to the book is the Sow-your-own-Salad page with lettuce-seed impregnated paper. This cut-out page will come to life when placed in a seed pot with compost and water. The miracle of growing your own, springing from the pages of their first gardening book!

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!
