Ready Set Grow

Ready Set Grow
Quick and easy gardening projects
(7 - 12 years)

-information taken from the DK Canada website

With top 10 lists, showing the best and easiest plants to grow and projects that can be completed anywhere, from the city to the suburbs, Ready Set Grow features more than 30 simple gardening projects specially designed to be completed during summer vacation. In Ready Set Grow step-by-step photographs show young gardeners how to grow plants from seed, how to propagate plants, when to harvest seeds, how long different plants take to grow, what to do about pests, and much more.

My Review

Ready Set Grow is an absolutely fabulous book. I love all of the fun projects for kids to do. The book explains things clearly in a super kid-friendly way. The directions are very easy to follow. The pictures are bright and colourful and very eye-catching. 

Ready Set Grow explains gardening perfectly for kids- step by step with lots of visual aids! There are projects for everyone- no matter how small or large of a gardening space you have to work with. There is everything from small pots and window boxes to fairy rings and floral teepee's. 

I LOVE that every project has a circle in the top left hand corner of the page telling you exactly how long you can expect the project to take- from "12 weeks" for growing poppies to "1 hour" for making dazzling decorations. I also really like the Top 10 lists like the "Top 10 Quick-to-Grow plants" list.

I am thoroughly impressed with Ready Set Grow!

Thanks so much to DK Canada for sending me a review copy of this book.
