Grow a Totally Weird Garden
Andrews McMeel Publishing, May 1, 1996 - Gardening - 64 pages
Kids who are old enough to play in the dirt will love this book and kit, because it shows them how to start their very own garden. In humorous illustrations and child-friendly text, the Grow a Totally Weird Garden teaches kids all about growing things, while keeping them engaged throughout the growing season with interesting and unusual facts. They'll learn how to plant indoors and outdoors, why some plants are sensitive (the Sensitive Plant moves when you touch it!), and how to take care of their tiny sprouts. Parents will want to help their kids make compost, spot new shoots, and look for good and bad bugs. Together, they can plant the seeds included with Grow a Totally Weird Garden -- six packets filled with seeds for purple beans (they turn green when you cook them!), round carrots, giant pumpkins, behemoth sunflowers, and more -- and watch to see what comes up.
