A delightful guide--packed with games, activities, and extras--that will satisfy the garden-curious and get families excited about growing their own fruits and vegetables.
Have you ever wondered how plants work? Or why we eat the fruit of one plant, but the leaves of another? What’s the big deal about growing things—and how do we decide what we need to grow in the space we have? Discover the whole life cycle of food, from sowing and saving to planning and planting, and—most exciting of all—harvesting the food you’ve grown. In Grow, you’ll get all the inspiration and knowledge you need to get out there and start planting.
· A visual guide to the world of plants—what they need to grow, how to care for them, and more
· Grow your own pizza! How to plant for a recipe, with fruits and vegetables in pots or a whole vegetable garden
· Pull-out activities, including a runner-bean growth chart, a Fruit Pairs game, Rainbow Taste Wheel (turn the dial to find out which vitamins are found in each fruit and vegetable), and four sheets of stickers
