Synopsis

The Big Summer Activity Book by Anne Thomas, Peter Thomas

For parents, the summer can seem to stretch out endlessly. There's a constant pressure to keep the children physically occupied and mentally engaged. This can be especially hard if you're a working parent who doesn't get a long time off work. This book should alleviate some of the pressure. Based on many years experience of keeping children busy and happy, Anne and Peter Thomas have compiled a huge collection of summer activities that will help keep boredom at bay. It includes indoor and outdoor activities, things to make, things to see and things to do. It is packed with handy tips on food (such as sweets for car journeys), health (such as sunburn) and safety. It covers everything from simple games that parents might themselves have played as a child to inspiring projects that will challenge the whole family. Fully illustrated in colour throughout, this is an indispensable handbook for any parent.

Reviews

'An excellent book packed full of great ideas and activities for parents and carers of children of all ages. Whether you are indoors or out and about, travelling, exploring a forest, star gazing or lying on a beach, this book has things to see, do and makes which the whole family can enjoy and learn from.'

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
