Kids’ Container Gardening: Year-Round Projects for Inside and Out, by Cindy Krezel. This is a great idea, well presented, with a good variety of small projects that kids can do either by themselves or with you. It starts with some good advice and goes on to tell you about a wide variety of containers you can use and interesting ideas for growing things in them. Have you ever heard of a cocktail garden? It’s just one of the projects here, along with vegetable hanging baskets, Halloween hats, sand art terrariums, a small fountain, and others. Ages 9 to 12. Cover price $14.95. $13.00 from Brook Farm Books.

Another fun book is the TickleMe Plant Book. In it they show how to easily grow the plant that moves like an animal when Tickled. It’s called the TickleMe Plant (Mimosa pudica) The magical leaves fold up one by one when tickled! It was a good read with plenty of pictures to make you a TickleMe Plant lover.

Thanks so much for suggesting Tickle Me. It sounds like fun and I’m always for having fun while learning and encouraging growing minds. I’ll take a look at it.
