Garden to Table: A Kid’s Guide to Planting, Growing, and Preparing Food

We rated this book:


Our family grows a vegetable garden every year, but we’re not very scientific about it. We buy some plants from the nursery, put them in the ground, add water and hope they grow. This book gave us more information about how to grow common foods. Sections include basil, carrots, green beans, leaf lettuce, potatoes and tomatoes. For each food section, the book tells you about growing your food from seed, stages of growth and how to harvest your crop. The BEST part is the recipes. There are a lot of yummy, easy to make recipes for each food. So far we’ve made the pizza margherita, carrot muffins, nacho taco bowl, and oven fries. I liked everything except the pizza (I prefer just cheese.) The pictures are really awesome also. Every page has lots of big, color pictures.

I would definitely recommend this book to any kid who likes to grow and cook their own food. I like cooking better than growing, so I mainly read the recipes but I’d buy the book just for the recipes. They were easy to follow and didn’t have too many ingredients like some cookbooks. My only complaint is that too many of the recipes used a ton of garlic. How many kids like that much garlic?
