Discusses growth, care, and planting of flowers and plants indoors from seeds, leaves, and bulbs.

Publishers Description
Kids are captivated by growing things. They're fascinated by the way a seed, when planted, watered, and cared for, sprouts into a baby plant that's soon putting out its first roots and leaves. Inspired by children's innate affinity for gardening, Tina Davis has created "Sow and Grow"--a year's worth of playtime ideas that combine fun and learning with a child's sense of wonder at the natural world.
In this, the third in her enchantingly designed series of children's books, Davis has devised a calendar of indoor-gardening and related activities, all linked to seasonal celebrations and changes: For April, she suggests planting tiny spring gardens in eggshells. For September, pressing late-summer flowers and autumn leaves. For December, decorating the house with living greenery. Each activity is described in child-friendly language--and parents are invited to participate
"Sow and Grow" also acquaints children with the basics of plant biology, teaching them the meanings of words like "fruit" and "flower" and explaining the roles of light, air, and water in plants' development. Like Davis's other books, "Sow and Grow" is illustrated with charming vintage drawings from children's books of the past. Its lay-flat wire-o binding makes it easy to refer to during use.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Focused on specific projects, not gardening per se  Sep 16, 2008
It's my own fault for not checking before buying, to make sure it had the content I was looking for. But other entries in this series (Look and Cook, See and Sew) have been both charming and practical, so I wasn't concerned.

There's really nothing wrong with this book. It's just that if you're looking for a way to introduce gardening to children, and you think of gardening as being outside digging and weeding and whatnot, this book has a focus you won't find very useful.

There is a different project for each month. Forcing blooms on a branch, for example, or pressing flowers. These are definitely ways of being involved with nature and plants. But they seem kind of tangental, or maybe just too subcategory, to gardening as a whole--almost like holding nature at arm's length and reducing it to a decoration or a curiousity.

It's full of the usual great collection of vintage illustrations. But if you're looking for a way to get out there and garden with kids, check out the related links under "customers who bought this also bought..."
Children are curious about and fascinated with nature  May 8, 2008
Children are curious about and fascinated with nature. Couple this curiosity with the experience of gardening and the result will be a child that appreciates the fruits, vegetables, and grains that nature has to offer. "Sow And Grow: A Gardening Book For Children" is specifically designed and written by Tina Davis to provide young readers with a calendar of indoor-gardening and related activities, each of which is linked to seasonal celebrations and changes. Beautifully illustrated throughout, "Sow And Grow" begins with basic explanations of the various parts of plants from seed to flower to fruit. Then addresses what plants need to thrive. Then beginning with January and working through to December, specific and 'kid friendly' projects are provided with step-by-step instructions. January is 'Growing Plants from Seeds', May is 'Window Boxes', September is 'Pressing Flowers and Leaves', December is 'Decorating and Caring for Houseplants'. Enhanced with extensive Gardening Notes, "Sow And Grow" is enthusiastically recommended for both family and community library Gardening reference and instructional guide collections for children.
Sweet Vintage Inspired Children's Book  Apr 2, 2008
I love all of books Tina Davis has written for children and this is no exception. Her sweet, vintage illustrations and simple gardening projects for the month are fun for moms and kids alike.
