The simple act of connecting children to nature through gardening is Sharon Lovejoy's special purpose and joy. In Roots, Shoots, Buckets & Boots, she presents 12 spirited, easy-to-implement ideas for theme gardens and projects to cultivate wonder. Pizza Patches, Bean Tunnels, Sunflower House, Moon Garden and more.
Illustrated throughout with the author's own lyrical watercolors, each garden includes a plan and the planting recipe, as well as activities and crafts to make with what you grow. Discovery Walks teach how the gardens work, and a chapter on gardening basics includes a child-friendly 10-Minute Plan for planting and maintenance, plus a list of the top 20 plants guaranteed to make gardeners out of children.
Since 1999 this book has been a favorite resource for early childhood teachers, families and gardeners!
