This is an excellent book to share with young children. The photography clearly shows how to plant a garden, and the text is interesting and informative. Since many primary grade classes study plants and do some planting, this would be excellent material to read aloud and share or have in a classroom library for reference and enjoyment.
A gem of a book that chronicles Class 6's school garden and how it fits into their school ecosystem. Students set up their garden, sprout seedlings, transplant, weed, and harvest their plants for a delicious salad. Plant parts, cycling of nutrients, and gardening vocabulary are all used in their colorful picture book. Great to help inspire young gardeners in your own classroom!
