DESCRIPTION 

In the Little Homesteader: A Summer Treasury of Recipes, Crafts, and Wisdom, young readers can try their hand at various summer themed projects as well as learn interesting seasonal wisdom, and nature-related facts along the way.
 
Packed with
fun ideas to keep kids occupied during holidays or at weekends, readers can discover the joys of making natural shampoo, learn about honey harvesting, handprint a picnic blanket, craft a sun catcher, and follow tasty recipes for summertime treats such as homemade watermelon popsicles.

The activities from author and homesteading teacher Angela Fanning include
eco-friendly practices, such as recycling or reusing materials, and encourage readers to respect nature.
 
All the activities are
broken down into steps, clearly explained and accompanied by Annelies Draws' adorably wholesome illustrations. The planting and gardening activities will suit any space, as they will work equally well on windowsills as in backyards.
