Book Review - The Boy's Book of Adventure

All opinions expressed in this review are my own and not influenced in any way by the company.  Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.

About the Book
Here’s an exciting book packed with facts about nature, ideas for outdoor activities, and fun-to-do crafts projects that will keep boys interested and busy all year around. It’s filled with color illustrations and diagrams that teach kids:

  • How to recognize different kinds of insects and observe their activities
  • How to identify different kinds of rocks
  • How to read a topographic map
  • How to construct a camper’s backpack
  • How to tie sailors’ knots
  • How to build a periscope . . . and much more

Camping advice and instruction includes ways to protect against the weather, first-aid for injuries, advice on using a compass, tips for studying the night sky, identifying birds, and much more. The book’s wide array of topics and sturdy construction makes it an ideal outdoor companion for hiking and camping excursions. An elastic band bound into the back cover can be stretched over pages and used as a place marker. Color illustrations on every page.

About The Authors

Célia Gallais is a French freelance writer who has worked on various children’s magazines, and has written several word games books for kids. She currently lives in Malmö, Sweden.

My Take on the Book
While I do not have boys myself, I wish that there was a book like this when I was growing up. There were so many ideas in this book that would make any boy excited... from making a bow and arrow to learning about poisonous snakes and musical instruments. This is a great book for any boy and will give his a ton of great ideas to try for themselves. I highly encourage all to share this with the boys in your life!
