Review:
True to the foundation of Thames and Kosmos products, the intelligently designed Plants beginner experiment kit centers on the booklet. The instructions for these basic projects are rendered in pictures as well as text, ostensibly for the benefit of smaller children. Realistically, most young children will not have the attention span or dexterity for these activities without some adult assistance. As one might expect, this kit includes seeds and a small pot, the fundamentals of any home or school exploration of growth. The additional experiments in the booklet demonstrate the ways in which water and light are taken in by plants, and how each is essential if the plant is to survive.
