This book covers seventy-six of the very best-tasting, common, and easy-to-identify wild edible plants of the contiguous United States and southern Canada. Using it will make their certain identification easy.
Teach children to learn a small number of plants extremely well. Dandelions, mulberries, cattails, wood sorrel, sheep sorrel, common plantain, long-leaf plantain, red clover, and white clover are good ones to start with. Study them carefully, and watch how they change with the seasons. You may ?branch out? to other plants later.
If you can identify and point out poisonous wild plants, do so but donít let young children collect them. If you collect them yourself, be sure to label the bags carefully, and donít store poisonous plants in refrigerators that others have access to.
