Tips are broken down into four sections: "At School" (boost your brainpower, be a great friend, win a staring contest), "Out and About" (replace a bike chain, find the Big Dipper, make the perfect snowman), "At Home" (choose a pet, throw a great party, set the table), and "Anywhere and Everywhere" (start your own business, do a great magic trick, take fabulous photos.) Also included are "You never know, but just in case" sections with silly tips, like how to prepare for a space mission, greet royalty, survive on a desert island, or accept an Academy Award. Complete with simple illustrations and easy to follow instructions; this handy little guide will soon have readers accomplishing amazing feats, just like a pro.
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.
