My son has the heart of an adventurer, a hero. When he was only two, he made a “gun” out of a pizza crust, and I knew, then, that there was no point in fighting it. Instead, I’ve given him my blessing and permission to be all boy!
A few months ago, I found a book that speaks to that adventurous heart of his, The American Boy’s Handy Book. It’s a new edition of a classic book first published in 1882. My little guy has studied knot-tying techniques, how to spear fish, and snowball warfare. He’s even tried to teach our Basenji to retrieve using ideas in Chapter 24!
The book has thirty-one chapters chock-full of ideas to keep your adventure-loving boy busy while learning practical, timeless skills.
