21 Timeless Skills Every Child Should Know (and any parent can teach!)
Jeffrey Lee
Illustrated by Philomena O'neill

When my father taught me how to skip a rock, I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. You see, he wasn't much of an outdoorsy type, accountant that he was. It took marrying a guy who knew how to build a campfire, throw a Frisbee, and wield a hammer for me to learn how to do some of life's really important things. And now that I'm a parent, I completely understand why this book was written. Life is just richer knowing how to fly a kite, juggle, play a blade of grass, do a magic trick, bake bread, eat with chopsticks, build a wooden box, name the stars, etc.

This is just the book to teach parents how to teach their kids to do such things. Each skill is illustrated and embellished with fascinating trivia. Some are simple enough for 4-year-olds while others will fascinate the most jaded adolescent. You get the added bonus of learning something, yourself -- or at the very least, realizing that it's been way too long since you've done one of these activities and that it's never too early to share the fun with your child. This is a great book!
