Brooklyn Botanic Garden--home of the oldest continuously operating children's garden in North America--offers a groundbreaking handbook that helps parents, teachers, and community gardeners introduce the pleasures of gardening to kids. In addition to learning the basics--including how to grow common plants from seed--young gardeners will be encouraged to discover nature's cycles, become ecologically aware, and follow their inborn curiosity as they explore. It doesn't matter whether kids have access to a large green yard or only to a windowsill planter: here are scores of fun projects that can awaken their sense of wonder about the natural world while nourishing cognitive functioning and self-confidence. Youngsters will love building a root-view garden from a milk container, making chlorophyll prints, constructing a hummingbird feeder, and more.
