23 Things to Do before you are 11 ½ by Mike Warren –ADVISABLE

Warren, Mike  23 Things to Do before you are 11 ½ 63 pgs. QED Publishing, 2015. $17.95 NON-FICTION
This book 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.
