Description

In this colorful guide featuring 30 easy gardening projects, kids will learn to grow their own fruits and vegetables, attract wildlife such as butterflies and bees, and recycle household items into animal habitats and fun decorations. Whether they've got a big backyard or just a windowsill, kids can grow all sorts of plants with this beginner's gardening book.

Packed with step-by-step activities, this book teaches children ages 5-8 how to grow garden staples like tomatoes, pumpkins, and zucchini with photographic examples. Each project includes a complete materials list, planting guide, and tips on harvesting your fruits and vegetables, providing plenty of support for kids from start to finish. The book also offers advice on creating creature-friendly spaces within your garden, such as a bee hotel, a ladybug sanctuary, and a home for frogs and toads. By caring for the wildlife around them, kids can grow to better understand the relationship between humans and nature, and how we can support local habitats wherever we happen to live.

Beyond the gardening basics, Let's Get Gardening also helps kids learn about conservation, recycling, and sustainability through simple, hands-on projects. From making mini greenhouses out of leftover glass jars, to growing strawberries in an old pair of rain boots, to repurposing an empty milk carton as a hanging bird feeder, there are so many practical ways for kids to help cut waste and reduce pollution. So grab your potting soil and let's get gardening!
