A Librarian's Guide to Cultivating An Elementary School Garden.
A LIBRARIAN'S GUIDE TO CULTIVATING AN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL GARDEN
Gardening with children seems to come and go in the elementary curriculum and with the emphasis totally on test scores these days, perhaps teaching real stuff is a lost art; however, in a downturned economy, perhaps it is something worth reviving as a survival strategy. Should the teacher-librarian be in charge of the school garden? Please, not. But, we can promote, help, guide, coach, and celebrate the garden. This is a good popular guide of ideas for manageable gardens and as an extended school/parent connection would be extremely helpful at this difficult time. (Linworth Publishing, 2009. 124 pp. $39.95. 978-1-58683-328-2.)
Bottom line: We recommend buying and promoting this book to the faculty. It is all a part of health and wellness.
