Review:

Whitney Cohen of the Life Lab Science Program has created a series of gardening activities for youngsters ages 8 and up. 40 cleverly designed, oversized cards of interesting kid friendly activities are color coded in five categories: Exploring the Garden (Who's Been Here?), Planting and Growing (Compost Cake), Fun with Plants (Sock Garden), Discovering Creatures (A Snail's Pace), and Creating Garden Art(Pressed Leaf Candles). Each double-sided card notes the time each activity takes, in which season it should be done, materials needed, and if it's an "indoor" or "outdoor" activity. Charmingly illustrated, the cards offer step-by-step instructions and the ever-present cautionary note: "Ask a grown-up before you start."
