Burgeoning young gardeners will have the opportunity to develop a green thumb and experience the joys of gardening in this how-to guide for kids. With 18 time-tested, proven projects gleaned from the author's experience as director of "The Good Earth Kids' Club," kids learn how to create a year-round assortment of container gardens that are simple to make, are fun to work on, and in many instances make great gifts. Organized by season, the container gardens run the gamut from "Great Big Garden Bowls for Mom" and "Father's Day Fountains," to sand art terrariums and special occasion holiday containers. In addition to providing the basics on plants and gardening, this helpful guide also includes a glossary of terms, a listing of plants used in the book, a list of resources, and numerous photographs to show kids that they're proceeding on the right path as they create their individual containers.

This book is great! very colorful and well illustrated, great beginner projects for all year round, Our favorite thing about it was that there are projects that my young son and I both really enjoyed, both planting from seeds, seedlings, and even non planting related items, like "pot People"
