By Renata Fossen Brown This fun and creative book features 52 plant-related activities set into weekly lessons, beginning with learning to read maps to find your heat zone, moving through seeds, soil, composting, and then creating garden art and appreciating your natural surroundings. Brown guides your family through fun opportunities learning about botany, ecology, the seasons, food, patience, insects, eating, and cooking. The labs can be used as singular projects or to build up to a year of hands-on outdoor experiences. The lessons in this book are open-ended to be explored over and over – with different results each time! Garden Lab for Kids is the coolest book we have seen on the subject of gardening with kids, and gets a big staff endorsement from West Coast Seeds. 22.2 x 1.3 x 22.2 cm, 136 pages.
