Grow and Learn with DK Canada
Spring is really beginning to show outside. It gives a fresh look and feel our neighbourhoods. Our family loves growing plants. They are an important part of our lives and we love being surrounded by them, both indoors and out. DK Canada wants families to become more connected to plant life this spring. They asked if we would like to grow and learn this season from three books from their amazing array of titles. We were excited and could not wait to see how we could discovering more about the plant world.
Below are three titles my family received to start learning this spring:
Turning a brown thumb greener
We enjoy having house plants around our home. Plants make our house look more like a home, and they help to make the air cleaner. There are some plants we have a bit of trouble growing indoors and would love to have more help to figure out how to keep them alive. Practical Houseplant Book was a great find to help give us a bit of insight to our growing issues.
Not only does this book offer readers tips to grow different indoor plants, it demonstrates different design ideas to help decorate your home with houseplants. I found it amazing to learn how to create a dry terrarium from start to finish. An added bonus are the tips to maintain this type of garden project.
Indoor and home-grown
My family loves to grow food in our garden. We have been thinking about starting to grow some of our food indoor to be able to have access to them all year-round. It would also be a learning experience for our kids to see an edible plant grow from seed to harvest. Indoor Edible Garden is a great read for us to start this process in our own home.
This book shares with readers how to plan an indoor garden, which plants can be grown indoors, and tips for caring for your indoor garden. We love Mediterranean cooking. Starting a Mediterranean garden is a project we would love to start. Indoor Edible Garden demonstrates how to create this kind of garden and gardening tips for this project. We are really excited to put it together to add fresher and home-grown
to our dinner table.
The importance of the buzz
Plant life outdoors is just as important as it in inside of our home. Our kids are curious about how they grow. We have sat down and discussed the importance of some of the pollinators that visit our backyard. Our little ones wanted to learn more about one of the most pollinators we see in our year: the bee. The Bee Book by Charlotte Milner is a fun read for kids to gain more insight to these amazing insects and how important they are to our world.
Our children had fun learning about bees and their lives, why they are important, and their significance in the pollination process. Finding out about the process of pollination fascinated my kids. They learned how it happens and its key role in the production of plants and food. They now want to start a garden of their own outside to invite more bees to our yard to help them thrive.
Grow and learn
All three books from DK Canada will come in handy to help our family grow and learn this spring! We now have more tips to make more of our houseplants, grow our own edible indoor garden, and the importance of bees. These titles not only benefit our family, they help to improve our communities and the world. Each book is a welcome addition to our family’s home library.
