    1. What an incredible book- so many projects in this book it would take you years to get to them all!! I love how there are many projects that do not require pricey materials too. Especially recommended for boys. Borrowed this one from the library but will definitely be buying for our family library.

    2. This book is the product of a great mind. Hundreds of ideas for making things at home from tents to dodecahedrons fill the pages of this book. Many of the projects use common everyday objects like toothpicks, straws, paper and string. Awesome!
