Learn and Play in the Garden
It's hands-on fun and natural science all in one bright, colorful book of garden projects for boys and girls. An illustrated opening section for parents lists everything kids need to get started -- pots, soil mixes, seeds, bulbs, and garden tools. Children are shown how to make an environmentally safe garlic spray to fight garden pests, and get instructions for planting and cultivating easy-to-grow vegetables. Here too are clear directions for making a colorful scarecrow, growing strawberries, growing a peach tree from a pit, and more. Over 40 projects are divided by season. 100 full-color illustrations, plus sidebars with information about plants.
