... a joy to read, a book to share with the entire family ... an excellent, creative, infectious title that makes the weekends very special, indeed.
Children's Literature - Kristin Harris
A pleasing collection of fun things for kids to do, this book reminds me of the 50's. It is decidedly low-tech, relying on time-tested favorites. The first section, which features environmentally oriented projects, is the one clue that this book is based in the 90's. Homey black and white illustrations complement the more than 150 pages of instructions for activities for kids. The projects are as grandiose as making a nature preserve, as innovative as being a supermarket sleuth to detect unhealthy ingredients in food and as predictable as building a birdhouse. The kids who will get the most out of the majority of these activities will need adults to help them read the instructions and gather the necessary materials, making this a great book for family time.
