Audience: ages 8 +Curriculum: A teacher can use some of these activities for students to get them excited and actively learning something new so long as they can find the activity relevant to the lesson plan. For example, there's a section on traveling to Africa and there's a map with small captions about each country. Summary: Book is intended to use to have activities and fun using imagination, creating their own adventure and having in the process of learning. Personal Response: This is a really cute book with lots of stuff to do and with illustrations that also seem to add to the context. Some images help more than others but they break up the blocks of text to help keep the attention of the reader.more

The Daring Book for Girls by Andrea J. Buchanan and Miriam Peskowitz is a great nonfiction book. This book is a girls how-to guide over pretty much everything. This book gives rules to sports such as basketball and softball, shows how to tie knots, fold a shirt Japanese style, and make a seine net.This is a book I would have loved as a young girl. I can’t wait till my girls are big enough to enjoy it.There is also a boy’s version to this book I would have the students read all or parts of both books. I would have them make observations about whether the parts in the book are generally for one sex or the other. Then as a class we would try a few things in the books.more
280 pages of tips on sports, history of women spies, hiking, carving, linguistics, you name it. Too fun, and very nice illustrations.more
As a nostalgic 20-something, I have to say, I preferred [The Dangerous Book for Boys]. Perhaps that stems from the fact that I was a tomboy, and am now the mother of two boys.This certainly has its merits, including some interesting historical lessons tied into more traditional how-tos (I loved the letter writing section paired with letters between Abigail and John Adams). I am very pleased that Peskowitz included a list of books as well. While I own many of them, I always love suggestions of what to pick up next.more
