Book of the Week — Sow and Grow

Happy May Day! I have the perfect book to tell you about — it totally feels like a May Day book. It's called
Sow and Grow, A Gardening Book for Children.

And it is just delightful. All of the illustrations are vintage. Actual vintage images, not vintage-like. The book has a cloth covered spine and feels good to hold. And the information is just right. Everything a curious kid would want to know. From the names of plant parts to "how to print with leaves".

There are sections on making potpourri, growing plants from seed, forcing bulbs and branches, terrariums, and a whole bunch more.

Tina Davis is the author and she's done a lovely job.
Sow and Grow would make a great reference in a school-age child's library. It's got me all excited to get out my trowel!

Yay for May!

We'll have to check this out! I just planted our "garden" yesterday afternoon and this book will be a great follow up.
