Product Description

Roots, Shoots, Buckets and Boots is one of those gorgeously constructed books that you can't help but look through again and again. Printed on faux hand-pressed paper, the creamy brown pages provide the perfect background for the detailed illustrations scattered throughout. With an introduction on the top 20 plants for kids, the remainder of the book contains instructions for 12 imagination-infused theme gardens. A pizza patch. A moon-garden. Each garden features an "ingredients list" of flowers, a floor-plan, notes on planting and care, and ideas for gentle garden activities, all with the author's own watercolors illustrating each step. Finally, a section on gardening basics provides an overview of starting your very own garden. One can feel the author's love of the earth through each pages, and cannot help but be inspired by the creative themes. You'll want to run out and plant your own! 159 pages with resource list. Plastic-coated softcover.

Publisher's Description

Plant a pumpkinseed with a child, and cultivate wonder. This simple act of reconnecting with children with nature is Sharon Lovejoy's purpose and joy and gift. Author of Sunflower Houses: Garden Discoveries for Children of All Ages and Hollyhock Days: Garden Adventures for the Young at Heart, Sharon Lovejoy is a nationally known garden writer whose books, television specials, and projects at her learning landscape in California have introduced thousands of children to the pleasures of gardening.

In her newest book, Roots, Shoots, Buckets & Boots, she presents 12 spirited, easy-to-implement ideas for theme gardens that parents and kids can grow together. Illustrated throughout by the author's own lyrical watercolors, each garden includes a plan, the planting recipe -- seeds, seedlings, and growing instructions spelled out step-by-step -- and activities. There's the Pizza Patch , a giant-size wheel garden planted in "slices" of tomatoes, zucchini, oregano, and basil. A Flowery Maze to get lost in. A Moon Garden of night-blooming flowers, including a moonflower tent. And Mother Nature's Medicine Chest.

Discovery Walks teach kids 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 kids.
