Juvenile Nonfiction. Reference. Sports & Recreations. Study Aids & Workbooks. HTML:Long before "danger" was a book for boys, there was The American Boy's Handy Book by Daniel Beard??a beloved classic by one of the original founders of the Boy Scouts of America. The American Boy's Handy Book was designed to provide hundreds of activities for restless young boys??adventures and games, indoors and out, in every season of the year. It was originally published in 1882 and became an instant bestseller.
Now, this much-loved classic is back in print for a new generation to enjoy. If you're not too young to fly a kite, or too old to enjoy a day of good fishing, The American Boy's Handy Book is chock full of games and activities just for you! There's something for boys of every age and for every day of the year in this book:
  • Building and flying your own kite
  • Making an aquarium
  • Rigging and sailing small boats
  • Camping without a tent
  • Making a corn stalk fiddle
  • Building a snow fort
  • Daniel Beard, a founding member of the Boy Scouts of America, firmly believed in letting boys make their own playthings with their hands, to encourage them to value their own work and gain skills needed to invent, construct and dream successfully. This is truer today than ever before??in a world of video games and cell phones. Welcome the joys of childhood back into your children's lives with The American Boy's Handy Book, and help them discover hobbies, games and activities that will stimulate their imagination and create a sense of adventure in the real world around us.… (més)

In a world where this week's headlines include "Banff lodge fined $27K for destroying barn swallow nest with eggs", it seems odd and rather appalling to find a book with chapters on how to collect birds' nests and eggs, and how to rear wild birds (baby owls, Farley Mowat notwithstanding, are much harder to domesticate than baby hawks, and it's quite handy to have a tame hawk tethered in the garden to keep down the depredations of free-range chickens). This was the world of Sterling North, Farley Mowat, and Mark Twain.

You can also learn how to construct fire balloons, how to light a gas jet with the static spark from your own finger, and many other dangerous enterprises. Or build your own boat and sail it. (But learn to swim first, the book advises.)

The chapters on hunting and trapping could be useful in the "SHTF" scenario that "preppers" are fond of invoking. Meanwhile, we can fly hand-made kites or put on shadow-puppet shows. The script and patterns for all characters of Puss In Boots are included. ( )

I had three boys and before that three sisters, what did I know of being a boy or what to do with boys - thank goodness for books like this. Not only did it help me with activities to do with my boys it also gave me a feel of how boys think. This was also an invaluable tool that I used as a cub scout parent. ( )

It is a pleasant sensation to sit in the first spring sunshine and feel the steady pull of a good kite upon the string, and watch its graceful movements as it sways from side to side, ever mounting higher and higher, as if impatient to free itself and soar away amid the clouds.
