Involving children in gardening activities can be rewarding for both the adults and the children. This splendid, full-color book is devoted to creating an adult-centered garden that includes and celebrates children's efforts in the garden. Beth Richardson offers innovative and creative ways to start a family garden in which children can work and dream and feel accomplished -- and have some fun, too.

This book will help parents as they instruct their children on the basic processes that support life. The projects are accessible and fun for today's busy families.

-- A practical guide to family gardening.
