The Lovereading4Kids comment

May 2015 Book of the Month There’s a wide range of things to make in this fun book, from building your own toolbox – the first project, naturally – to making a wormery and a simple spinning motor. For each one there are step-by-step instructions, clearly explained and easy to follow, with bright symbols to indicate when grown-up help will be needed. The skills learned making these twenty-three projects can thereafter be successfully applied to hundreds more DIY projects too. A book to inspire kids and provide them with hours of fun, whether they are working independently or in association with their elders (parents, grandparents, aunts or uncles). ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

23 Things to Do Before You are 11 1/2 by Mike Warren

An essential guide to activities a child can enjoy with their parents or grandparents. From understanding basic woodworking skills to constructing a kite, the reader will also learn about the science and eco side of invention. Activities are broken down into easy steps and technical information comes alive in bite-size facts.

Dare-devils can make stilts, a rope ladder, and even a go-cart! Budding adventurers will learn how to put together a survival bag, campfile and fishing net. Aspiring conservationists can build their own bird nesting box and wormery. Outdoor activities have never been such fun, and if it's raining there are plenty of other fun things to do!
