The Dangerous Book for Boys
For every boy from eight to eighty, covers essential boyhood skills such as building tree houses, learning how to fish, finding true north, and even answering the age-old question of what the big deal with girls is. In this digital age there is still a place for knots, skimming stones and stories of incredible courage. This book recaptures Sunday afternoons, stimulates curiosity, and makes for great father-son activities. The brothers Conn and Hal have put together a collection of all things that make being young, or young at heart, fun--building go-carts and electromagnets, identifying insects and spiders, and flying the world's best paper airplanes.--From publisher description.

Great book for all things boy-related. It's the type of book they'll want to borrow again & again.

This book is only Dangerous, if you think knowledge is dangerous. Otherwise it is simply an encyclopedia of how to do things aimed at boys. This would be an excellent book for a classroom library, or for the bathroom or guestroom of a home with boys.
