Green Kid's Guide to Gardening – School Library Journal

This set contains clear and concise instructions and information that encourage kids to enjoy all aspects of gardening while taking responsibility for the Earth. Young readers will appreciate the frank language–worm poop gets a lot of play–and accessible analogies (a raised bed is compared to a bed for people). Like the text, these drawings are clear and helpful. Each book is rounded off with an activity, some of which, like “Grow Seedlings” (in Watering Plants) can even be undertaken in colder months. Great nonfiction for early readers.
