    "My son needs projects that he can participate in but that are also quick to gather materials for and to build. Many suggestions in the book are just that! Plus it gives ideas for "scavenger hunts". The book is also fantastic for my son to just look at. It is drawings, pictures, sketches and words so he can get information in a variety of ways. "

    Gave to Dad of 6 Y.O.
    Posted 1/18/2015 by DORIS BOLYARD

    Some of the projects weren't that interesting to me, but I'm not a male, or 6 Years old. Bought it for my Son to use with his 6 Y.O. Son. Son liked it. GS was overwhelmed with other toys abd didn't even give it a glance. His Dad leafed through it and thought it was cool.
