Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

The latest in Scholastic's growing retro-themed series, this quaint book provides step-by-step instructions for a variety of me-and-my-dad activities, from "Make an Artificial Eye" (with a cardboard tube) and "Hold a Garage Sale" to "Create Your Own Solar System" (a hanging mobile), among others. Good-natured kids who have enjoyed the previous books in the series as well as the bar-setting Dangerous Book for Boys(and who are still game for hanging out with dad) should be entertained. Also available: Things to Do with Mom. Ages 8-up. (Apr.)

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The introduction states that it is more fun to do things with someone when you have free time than to do it alone. This book contains more than 100 suggestions for games and activities that can be enjoyed with Dad. There are some symbols to indicate when adult intervention is probably best and another for things that should really appeal to kids. The activities range from cooking something as simple as a hamburger to playing indoor and outdoor games and plenty in between. The black and white illustrations give enough information for most of the activities, but for projects such as making a helicopter or creating a mobile, adult expertise or experience will be a big help. There are no real templates or step-by-step directions. Most of the activities will appeal to both boys and girls and the target age group seems to be 5 to 8. Some, such as Get Tuned In, require intellectual skills, but most tend toward creating something or a physical activity. In spite of the title, this book would work for Mom as well as Dad and actually with any adult and child combination. It is also a handy book to have around for a rainy day when you need an easy indoor activity. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
