encourage youngsters to investigate the natural world. Fantastic color photos capture real children happily working on the projects, and every project mixes fun and learning.

Take advantage of the great things that grow by making candies with fresh mint leaves or vinegars with just-picked herbs. Plus: a pocket sundial, a sweet smelling grass mat, a "desert in a jar," and more.
