What's growing in the garden?

Sunny days are gracing us now and again. If you're thinking of starting a garden with your kids, stop in to the library to check out some books. The Dewey number for gardening is 635, so you'll find great books upstairs for grownups and downstairs for kiddos. Here are a few of my favorite kid titles.

Kids' Container Gardening by Cindy Krezel. Garden all year round with projects for inside and outside plants.

Mini Scientist: In the Garden by Lisa Burke. Gardens are great places to learn. Try out these experiments in your own yard.

Ready Set Grow! This DK publication has step by step instructions, fantastic pictures and fun projects.

Yucky Worms by Vivian French. Worms are wiggly and slimy and great for the garden. This fun picture book shows you how.
