Green thumbs and non-green thumbs alike will fall in love with Roots, Shoots, Buckets, & Boots, a remarkably fun and
informative introduction to the wonderful world of gardening--and more specifically, gardening with children. Learn how
to make everything from a pizza garden (pizza-pie-shaped, with herbs and vegetables for a fabulous pizza at harvest
time), to a sunflower house (a secret hideaway with stately sunflowers and lovely creeping morning glories), to a moon
garden ("Fragrance is the color of night"). Chock full of helpful hints, clever and artistic touches, and intriguing
"recipes" (Moth Broth and Compost Sandwich, to name a few), this idea book will spark creativity and a lifelong
fascination with gardening. Nine concepts for theme gardens are presented in a clearly defined yet non-rigid manner that
is just right for encouraging young gardeners. Sharon Lovejoy, award-winning author and illustrator of several gardening
books, including Hollyhock Days: Garden Adventures for the Young at Heart, has a true knack for working with all kinds
of living things, including children. She understands how quickly young people will be turned off by inflexible rules,
and instead encourages budding green thumbs to experiment and explore, while providing them with useful guidelines and
helpful information. Wonderfully earthy watercolors make this cozy book even more welcoming. (All ages) --Emilie Coulter
