Curious Boys (and Girls)
To quote author, Sam Martin, "Adventuring instincts have been dulled over the years by video games, television, and all those electronic toys that short-circuit the imagination". I couldn't agree more and "The Curious Boy's Book of Adventure" is a wonderful antidote to re-awaken the imagination in this mind-numbing electronics age. As a tomboy at heart and the 44 year old mother of an adventurous young son, this book immediately won me over with it's instructions on how to build a water balloon catapult. There are experiments, projects and hijinks of every variety. The book is easy to understand and just the right size, portable and not overwhelming for young readers.
It's time to turn off the tv and start making some forts, bottle rockets, slime and home-grown crystals. Fun, Fun and more fun!
