Children find gardening fun and fascinating - it's wonderful to witness the pride and amazement they feel when they produce their own juicy tomatoes or sky-high sunflowers. "Gardening with Kids" is packed with fun and interesting projects for boys and girls. There are appealing ideas for growing flowers, fruit and vegetables from seed or bulb as well as garden-related crafts such as decorating plant pots, making a bird bath and pressing flowers. Just follow the simple step-by-step instructions, and you can't go wrong.
