Review:

Wizard Mountain is a gardening kit that has everything needed to create the type of garden that a wizard would grow. Five seed packs to grow plants with a variety of special properties and uses—aloe, eucalyptus, hyssop, sage, and the sensitive plant—are included with a sturdy, plastic Mountain Planner, two germination disks, glow-in-the-dark gravel, a germination bag, rubber band for sealing the germination bag, a small plastic wizard, and illustrated instructions to put it all together. The easy-to-understand, illustrated instructions include plant descriptions, growing information, "Fun Facts" for each plant, and sections on Wizard Lore, Wizard Facts, and Types of Wizards. Not only does the kit teach beginner gardening skills, but its wizard-theme resulted in children's desire to read books about wizards.
