Thanks, Jen! You will love this book. It's full of ideas and pictures, both photos and hand-drawn pictures, and perfect for kids. The CD inside has lessons and you can even turn in work to get a certification with a horticultural group.

We also love to study botany! Your garden is so beautiful and you have yourself some very good workers! We have been reading Apologia's Botany and using the kit. I will see if I can get the book you are using when we finish. I have learned that children love to garden and learn about herbs, flowers etc. Be blessed,Rose
