Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Remember blowing bubblegum bubbles until they popped in your face? Presenting a special handmade gift to Mom or Dad? Building sand castles and snow forts? These are just a few of the ideas in 101 Things Every Kid Should Do Growing Up, a book that will help children, and their parents, create memories that will be cherished for a lifetime. Some of the suggestions are pure fun -- such as licking cake frosting out of a bowl -- while others lean toward the educational or intellectually enriching, like experimenting with science projects or growing a vegetable garden. Some serve more as reminders for parents to take the time to praise their children, read to them, and make their young lives happy and a little exciting. In doing so, parents will make their own lives more joyful and fulfilling, too. After all, you're never too grown up to spit watermelon seeds on a hot day.
