About the Book
The Boxcar Children have long been known for being creative and resourceful. This hardcover book is filled with fun how-to guides for everyday adventures. It includes tips and tricks for mystery solving (how to make invisible ink and create secret codes), travel (how to pack a suitcase; how to take great snapshots), and enjoying the great outdoors. Each of the four Boxcar Children has their own section--practical advice from Jessie, a "roughing it" guide from Henry, crafts and art projects from Violet, and recipes from Benny! A great gift for Boxcar fans.
My Take on the Book
I grew up reading the series of books called THE BOX CAR CHILDREN . Now my girls are interested in reading the books too. The Alden children had great adventures and solved many mysteries. Your child will enjoy the information in each chapter and the accompanying projects or activities.
There are 8 chapters to explore. One of the chapters is called Outdoor Adventure. In this chapter, the reader will learn about tents, materials needed to be brought on a camping trip, campfire songs, and even the 12 uses for a bandana. I never knew there were so many uses for a bandana.
