Warren, Mike 23 Things to Do before you are 11 ½ 63 pgs. QED Publishing, 2015. $17.95 NON-FICTION
features 23 different projects that kids would be interested in creating. Some
are fairly easy like typing knots, creating kits, making a treasure map. Some
are more detailed and would require an adult to help a bit like a Secret booksafe,
Water Noodle Sword, and building a bird house. And some are way more complex and
would fully require adult help and supervision like a Go Kart.
This is a
fun bright book that would set students imaginations and enthusiasm alight. It
would make for incredibly fun projects for a parent and child to do together as
well as a great introduction to using tools safely. My favorite is the Super Solar Oven, because its easy,
practical, and children can see the useful results right away.
