101 Kid-Friendly Plants provides an extensive list of flowers, vegetables, trees and houseplants that are safe for kids and fun to incorporate into gardens, landscapes and kids projects. Krezel, who has worked with kids for more than a decade, has arranged the plants by type—plants from seed, bulbs, annuals, perennials, indoor plants, water plants, vegetables and herbs, fruiting trees and shrubs and fun trees. She describes the habit of each plant, why it’s good for kids and ways to use it in gardens or projects. All of the plants she recommends have been approved of by poison-control experts to ensure that the gardening and projects are as safe as possible. Taking it a step further, Krezel includes 17 projects for kids and families, incorporating the plants described in the first part of the book. She talks about planting gardens for cut flowers, butterfly gardens, veggie gardens, a rainbow garden, "hideaway" gardens, water gardens and how to dry flowers. Color photos throughout the book show each plant and steps of the projects.
