My kids and I reviewed this book for Mother Daughter Book Reviews. Here are our thoughts:

SON SAYS:

This is the best book ever and I want to read it every single day. I’ve already made the compass and learned to tie knots – that was a lot of fun! I really liked reading about the snakes and the rocks. Some of the things I want to try making are the periscope, building the teepee, and making the telephone. I think this book is good for all boys and some girls like my Mom.

MOM SAYS:

This book is great with all the exciting information and answers to many things. It sparks my kids' curiosity. I saw another for girls. I strongly dislike the title and how gender bias this serious of books is. Boys can learn too cook and girls can enjoy outdoors just as much. Stop feeding my kids with ideas that girls should do the cooking, paint their nails, etc I'm going to use a red marker and put a big cross on the word "Boy's" on the cover.

I got this book for my 11 year old son for his birthday. Contrary to what some may believe, it is perfectly acceptable and OK for boys and girls to have something labeled and geared toward their stereotypical gender! I'm so tired of people gasping at things being labeled for boys or girls. It really is OK for them to have something of their own! Thank for you making something geared toward the typical boy who can celebrate and be proud of being a typical boy. Believe it or not, there are still m ...more

Since BSA is a thing of the past, I wanted to find a book to send to my youngest grandson (11). This is what you found in one of the cub scout books rather than the boy scout manual. It seems like any boy of 9 or 10 would love it. And it may give them the incentive to do something other than play insidious video games. But...I wish it had been titled kid's book of adventure, because I loved activities like this as a girl.

It was cool. It told me a lot of experiments I could do. It told me a lot stuff I didn't know.

There were some serious culturally inappropriate images throughout the book. I had to tear out some of the stickers and cover the image on the back.
