Editorial Reviews

Sunday Times Record News
The easy-to-read book presents a brief history of forts, instructions for building indoor and outdoor forts and hints on where to obtain materials.
David Sobel
This book won't just get read—it will be actively put to use! Very user-friendly for kids.
Children's Literature - Marilyn Bagel
If there's a kid's fort to be built and it's not in this book, then it doesn't exist. This compendium of easy-to-follow instructions with accompanying illustrations is all you need to build a variety of forts indoors and out-whether beach, snow or in practically any room in your house. The book opens with brief history about forts. Then you're on your way to building everything from simple desk forts and lean-to designs to dome forts and teepees, snowball forts, igloos and sand forts. It even includes creative ideas for furniture and other interior finishing touches. A family favorite!

    great book!

    This book really helped my kids, Sandra and Mia. They were trying to find a way to build a fort for months when I finally ordered the book! They read the easy to understand chapters...and we went out to find supplies! This book rocks! They now each have their own forts (that are hiding in the trees so they get privacy) They love the forts...they are very kid approved!
