About the Author:

Cindy Krezel has written articles appearing in Long Island Gardening, Newsday, and the New York Times, and organizes gardening programs for children. Bruce Curtis is a professional photographer whose work has appeared in numerous books and calendars.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-8–What plants need, how to handle them, and zoning and climate are all covered in this attractive book. Projects include seeding and starting greenhouses, garden bowls, a vegetable hanging basket, a Fathers Day fountain, butterfly gardens, salad bowls, amaryllis pots, Halloween hats, succulent gardens, and more. Brief background information is provided for some projects, such as what specific plants attract butterflies, the color wheel, and annuals for planters. Cool Facts, such as why marigolds are planted with basil and tomatoes and information on worms and the Venus flytrap, are included. Each project lists materials needed and gives step-by-step directions accompanied by a few photos. Adult help will be needed in some cases, and the use of safety gloves and goggles is mentioned where appropriate. Recommended supplies are easily obtainable from garden centers and through online purchasing. The author brings both enthusiasm and expertise to this book. The few typos found shouldnt cause too much confusion. There is no index. Color photos of child models, varied typeface, and creative kid-friendly pages all add up to a fine horticultural treat that will thrive in most collections.–Augusta R. Malvagno, Queens Borough Public Library, NY
