From School Library Journal:

Gr 1-3-This set contains clear and concise instructions and information that encourage kids to enjoy all aspects of gardening while taking responsibility for the Earth. Young readers will appreciate the frank language-worm poop gets a lot of play-and accessible analogies (a raised bed is compared to a bed for people). The tips and advice are quite good: in Garden Pest, students learn that ants hate mint, and in Composting it's explained that you shouldn't put meat, oil, or dairy into a compost "because animals will get into your compost pile." The cheerful illustrations are particularly charming; they depict kids of all sizes and hues working together, using tools, and caring for their plants. Like the text, these drawings are clear and helpful. Each book is rounded off with an activity, some of which, like "Grow Seedlings" (in Watering Plants) can even be undertaken in colder months. Great nonfiction for early readers. α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.

From Booklist:

Using short declarative sentences, as well as emphatic do’s and don’ts, this entry in the A Green Kid’s Guide to Gardening! series encourages young gardeners to avoid using pesticides (defined as poisons that kill all bugs). To avoid killing the butterflies and bees that help in the garden, Lay provides green tips and tricks to fool the bad bugs. Soothing illustrations depict glove-wearing kids picking the bugs off by hand, adding a mixture of dishwashing soap and water to soil, and so forth. A section titled The Enemy of My Enemy advises employing the aid of birds, bats, and bugs, all of which feed upon unwanted insects. After the natural cure-alls, a project—building a frog house—is appended. A thorough, charming guide that should send budding gardeners skipping down a greener path. Grades 3-5. --Courtney Jones
