Why We Love It

After winter's long chill, nothing beats the thaw and first signs of spring! We love gardening kits and insect habitats that introduce children to botany and life science concepts; kites, sidewalk chalk and bubbles for a return to outdoor play; and books and stuffed animals highlighting the cutest blooms, birds, bugs and barnyard favorites.
