Roots, Shoots, Buckets & Boots 

This simple act of reconnecting children with nature is Sharon Lovejoy's purpose, joy and gift.

She presents 12 spirited, easy-to-implement ideas for theme gardens that parents and kids can grow together.

Illustrated throughout by the author's own lyrical watercolors, each garden includes a plan, the planting recipe -- seeds, seedlings, and growing instructions spelled out step-by-step -- and activities.

There's the:

  • Pizza Patch, a giant-size wheel garden planted in "slices" of tomatoes, zucchini, oregano, and basil.
  • A Flowery Maze to get lost in.
  • A Moon Garden of night-blooming flowers, including a moonflower tent.
  • And Mother Nature's Medicine Chest.

Discovery Walks teach kids how the gardens work, and a chapter on gardening basics includes a child-friendly 10-Minute Plan for planting and maintenance, plus a list of the top 20 plants guaranteed to make gardeners out of kids.
