When building a collection of books for kids with a gardening theme, you do NOT need a ton of books. I have a bunch because I enjoy them immensely, but I also make use of our library and check many out from there as well.
In this article, I will explain how I would make a garden theme “love books basket” for our garden unit. This gets kids reading for depth and breadth on a particular topic and encourages them to explore reading for a variety of purposes. I like to display them in a basket and read them for about a month before rotating to the next theme. You can also make a collection and then loan the collection to a trusted friend for a month too. Then your hard work curating the set can be used by more than one family!
Choose 1-2 “how-to” or “activity” books such as the ones pictured below.
I’ve linked each of these up to our Amazon Affiliate account just in case you decide you want to purchase one. All Opinions are written on my own.
