Wahoo~my Hungarian Wax peppers are ready to be canned!!  It's the moment my son has been waiting for.  He can't wait to get started harvesting--well, in between entertaining the neighbor girl peering at him through the chain link fence, that is.  In between...

I LOVE spring. It's my favorite time of year, in fact. Not only is the sun shining warmer, but the leaves are turning brighter, the wind whisking a bit brisker--and it's time to garden! Who WOULDN'T be excited? And to celebrate, an awesome group of bloggers, authors...

    Although Show Me the Green! is clearly a strong “Let’s garden” for country and suburban children, even city dwellers should be inspired by this charming tale of how to grow veggies. With chapter titles like “Slippery Eggs & Seeds,” “Wacky Weeds,” “Shiny Frogs & Flittering Flies,” this is a fun story in itself and an inspiration to children everywhere.

    Not only were the characters easy to relate to and real, one can learn quite a bit about gardening without feeling like you’re reading a textbook. My students commented that they had felt just like Jason and Lexi a few times, and I shared that I had surely felt like the mom, too. Having read many books, I feel strongly about recommending this book to students as well as teachers. Great, well-written children’s book!

    This is a story that kids will be absorbed in without realizing how much they’re learning–about seeds, planting, plant life cycles, bugs, fertilizer… If you’re looking for a chapter book to get kids excited about nature, gardening, and science, this one would fit the bill.
