These books look like fun reading for kids:

Here are some excellent books to teach children about permaculture:

"Shanleya's Quest is a truly unique educational book that presents botanical concepts and plant identification skills in an easy and fun metaphorical format for children as well as for adults who are young at heart.

"Planting the Rainbow" by Lois Ehlert is one book that I remember from my teaching days that I really liked. It's not permaculture, necessarily, but I really liked how it gave colorful depictions of various actual flowers. One could easily research which of these are medicinal and edible and help your child plant their own rainbow garden!

Bigfoot Cinderrrrrella by Tony Johnston is a picture book about Rrrrrella, and a Bigfoot prince set in an old growth forest. Rrrrrella's mean stepsisters won't let her go to the fun-fest gathering of Bigfoots, though Rrrrrella's Beary Godfather comes to the rescue. Lots of humorous takes on this classic tale with a nature-loving message for all ages.

This charming book shows that ingenuity and love can transform any space! My daughter and I are urban gardeners for now, and we absolutely love the pictures and story in this great book.
