Emma Biggs, an enthusiastic 13-year-old with a love of gardening, shares her just-for-kids advice on growing a food garden, including theme garden ideas and tips for preparing, planting, and caring for a garden, along with creative ways to have fun doing it. Gardening for Emma is not only a great tool for the whole family, but also great resource for educators and curriculum at schools looking to start or expand their school gardens.
“This book is very useful for any family looking to start or expand a garden with young kids. It approaches gardening from a kid’s perspective, and Emma’s writing is light, fun and easily accessible. She also covers quite a lot of ground in less than 150 pages—everything from planting flowers and food, making planters, attracting birds and bugs and how to identify edible flowers and weeds.”
“I love the use of imagery throughout the book, as well as the obvious amount of research that went into putting this book together in a way that parents and kids will both find entertaining.”
“Love that Emma interviews other kids about some of the cool things they are doing in the gardening world, as this adds some variety and depth. I like that she truly speaks to kid readers, empowering them with the idea that they can start their own gardens.”
