Spring is full of possibilities and opportunities for fun and learning. Gardening, one of our favorite springtime activities, provides a real life hands on way to learn about how plants grow in the spring and throughout the summer. Gardening books for kids are a great tool to aid in this learning.
These gardening books are beautifully illustrated and really useful in teaching kids about seeds, plants, and the growing process. Whether you are growing a flower garden or vegetable garden, kids will find them fun, engaging, and informative.
