This is a wonderfully inspiring book for the great outdoors or indoors for that matter. The authors offer masses of suggestions for things to do with a stick, in the way of adventures and bushcraft, creative and imaginative play, games, woodcraft and conservation, music and more. As New York's Strong National Museum of Play pointed out when they selected a stick for inclusion in their National Toy Hall of Fame, 'It can be a Wild West horse, a medieval knight's sword, a boat on a stream, or a slingshot with a rubber band ...' Guaranteed to engage every child's imagination.
From the team who brought you the hugely successful Nature's Playground, Go Wild, Run Wild and Make It Wild.
...and a message from Julia Donaldson, Children's Laureate, author of Stick Man: 'A beautiful and inspiring book, bursting with practical suggestions which will appeal to every child's imagination.'
