What a delightful way to teach children (for ages 4 to 8) and adults how to plant a garden! From making a list to enjoying the fruits of your efforts, Eddie’s Garden and How to Make Things Grow explains it all. The illustrations, by author Susan Garland, are charming and informative. They show Mum and the children digging, planting and caring for the plants in the garden. We even learn about good and bad bugs. The book concludes with detailed information about the plants described in the course of the text.

Author Ellen Dugan encourages readers to work with nature by employing plants in traditional witchcraft practices. Attractively illustrated with sketches that depict individual plants and charming scenes of nature, the book contains a review of such activities using both garden and wild plants. Although the author recognizes that the average person may not be interested in pursuing herbalist practices, the information in the book may be of value to readers seeking knowledge about non–traditional and diverse uses of plants.
