If your small child is even vaguely interested in helping you in the garden, or on the allotment, then I'd urge you to get him/her this great book...
It's a lovely book: a beautifully-presented hardback which will stand a lot of use and there's even a useful glossary and efficient index.
For inspiration in the garden and the kitchen ... a how-to guide to growing and eating your own fruit and vegetables
A brilliant, brilliant cookbook full of imagination and packed with delicious info on both the growing and the cooking side of things. What better way to stimulate an interest in food than to really follow the whole process from start to finish. Utterly rewarding, and completely engaging!
...'The Kew Gardens Children's Cookbook' caught our Editors attention with its colourful cover and promise of easy step-by-step gardening advice for kids-and they weren't disappointed! [...] Expect scrumptious and fresh recipe ideas such as runner bean and bacon spaghetti or borlotti bean burgers (not to mention a whole section on health and nutrition).
Wonderfully illustrated and complemented by panels on minibeasts and other garden creatures, it shows how nature works to help plants grow. The growing guide also includes advice on cooking tools and utensils and healthy and balanced diets. From plot to plate, what's not to like about that?
