Gardening with Kids: A Booklist for Young Gardeners

2012 spring garden 3

Since we are all about kids in the garden around these parts right now, we thought it might be nice to send some extra inspiration your way as well. We will be doing some reviews of great garden-themed kids’ books over the coming weeks, and decided it would be nice to lead off by sharing a list of some favorites with you right now. That way you can get out to the library this weekend and haul home a book bag full of reads for encouraging springtime garden fun at your house. Click the link below to download a printable list for your own use.

    I’d like to add The Gardener by Sarah Stewart and David Small, which I discovered thanks to Annie (can’t remember if it was on the blog or in Alphabet Glue). Although it’s about much more than gardening, I found the idea of making something of beauty out of a very unlikely place truly inspiring.

      Yes! We adore The Gardener!
      In fact, we love it so much it is going to have its very own review!

    Can I add my book Wings, Worms and Wonder? It’s a super thorough resource for creative science and arts based gardening at home or school – or for a homeschool curriculum! And all the lessons were developed and tested on my own students when I was a Montessori classroom teacher.

      Yes! I am so happy you left a link here, Kelly! We need to get a blog review up for the book! Yes?
