This delightful book should really be titled 'gardening with the child in all of us', because what delights children delights adults as well. That first snap pea of the year is an ageless treasure. Ms. Richardson takes you through all the garden processes necessary to be a successful gardener. The approach is to organize each step so the children can easily follow those aspects of gardening that appeal to them. 

This would also be a great book for any beginning gardener.

There are chapters on planning the garden, building the garden, caring for the garden, harvesting from the garden and even recipes for using your harvest. There is also a section on crafts from the garden. Ms. Richardson gives directions for a simple composter you and your children can build. She teaches how to identify good bugs from bad bugs, and what to do when they become a problem. And, she emphasizes the importance of organic gardening and how to go about it. And, all of this is presented in a way to keep children interested. Actually, we were pretty entertained too.
