This handy book shows children how to do the really important things that every child needs to know, from surfing the Internet safely to roasting the perfect marshmallow.

School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-A storehouse of interesting information is packed into this chatty little guide to doing some really cool things, from skipping stones to changing a bike tire, giving an awesome speech, and roasting the perfect marshmallow. The book begins with how to say hello in 10 languages (including Arabic, Hindi, and Hungarian) and ends with how to tell a joke; in between are directions for building a house of cards, making friends, spinning a basketball on one finger, and so on. The instructions are easy to follow and usually cover a six-by-six-inch spread. Some of the colorful cartoons are decorative, but others help readers to visualize what they are supposed to do. A practical, fun read.-Cynde Suite, Bartow County Library System, Adairsville, GA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
