The Girl's Book of Adventure

About the Book
Girls who take pleasure in crafts activities, and who enjoy the outdoors and nature will love this activity book. It’s packed with color illustrations, things to make and do, and ideas for outdoor activities. Instructions, tips, and information on some of the book’s many topics include:

  • How to identify seasonal fruits, vegetables, and herbs
  • How to take professional-looking photos and create good-looking photo albums
  • How to make paper jewelry
  • How to make herbal teas and delicious fruit desserts
  • How to dress and pack for hiking and camping activities
  • How to construct imaginative musical instruments
  • How to weave containers and baskets

Here too are instructions for outdoor games, ideas for hiking trips and nature watching, first-aid instruction, and more—a total of 60 themes that are of special interest to girls. This book’s sturdy construction makes it ideal for taking along on outdoor activities. An elastic band bound into the back cover can be stretched over book pages for use as a place marker. Color illustrations on every page.

My Take on the Book
This was a great book that had so many great ideas and activities for girls. The day that I received this I was amazed to find my daughter engrossed in the book even before I had looked at it myself. The book is jam-packed with so many things that each page offers a new idea to be explored. What I loved about the book is that it covered so many areas and it was set up in such a way that it was inviting and easy to read. For each page that my daughter read she kept asking me if we could try the different projects. I am looking forward to continuing on with this book and sharing the experiences and activities with my daughter!
