This is an inspiring product that provides your child with an awareness of environmental processes from planting seeds to filling the compost bin. It highlights the social effort that goes into creating a community garden. The mat teaches children about cooperation and environmental improvement. It helps them to understand what makes a garden grow. The back of the mat is an outline drawing labeled to improve reading skills, and it can be colored with washable crayons. This is an inexpensive gift but it is a delightful one and will provide children with an inspiration to enjoy the possibilities of creating a garden. Good illustrations. This practical and readily available opportunity for your children to learn more is one of many great products in this series. Other new ones include “The Stage Inside and Outside,” all about what goes on inside the theater. And the other, “Good Character Critters,” deals with personal values such as being kind and treating everyone with respect.
