Looking to capture the essence of childhood past? Want to get your son away from electronics and into skills that last a lifetime? If you prefer outdoor exploits to new technology and want to introduce your child to the joys of play, get your own copy of The Dangerous Book for Boys by Conn and Hal Iggulden.
From big battles to paper airplanes, tying knots to catching bugs, this book offers something for every interest. Arranged into small chunks, one per topic, this book skips from awe-inspiring stories to essential skills. Each section covers from two to fifteen pages, with most in the five to seven range. Kids can read from cover to cover, or pick and choose whatever interests them at the moment.
Inspired by long days of playing outside yet surprisingly modern in application, this reference book provides a guide to exploring. Learn the rules of rugby alongside the capitals of every state and the highest mountains in the country. We received this book as a gift at the birth of our son, and it has occupied a place on the bookshelf ever since.
The info inside can be read together, with kids selecting the section, or enjoyed alone once they get ready for all the text. With frequent diagrams, illustrations, and more, kids can spend hours delving into the subjects in this comprehensive collection.
