"The Garden Classroom is absolutely sprouting with richly creative ways to use the garden. I'm particularly inspired by the section on play and imagine-and can't wait to see if my dinosaur world will attract tiny dinosaurs! Cathy James has been delighting me for years with her blog, and this book puts her inspiring garden ideas right at my fingertips and green thumb." —MaryAnn F. Kohl, author of Discovering Great Artists, Preschool Art, and 20 other art books for kids
