Subtitled, A How-To for Mystery Solving, Make-it-Yourself Projects and More. Looking for an adventure: solving mysteries, enjoying the great outdoors and road trips, telling spooky stories, cooking, crafting, helping out, playing games, or other kinds? This guide has everything you need for hours of active and engaging play for little and big kids alike, making it great for sibling bonding time. This book is formatted as if the Alden gang wrote it themselves, giving it a fun, notebook-y impression that makes you feel a part of their adventures.
Parents, there is a small chapter dedicated to Halloween. While the coverage is very light and kid friendly (includes directions for leaving a surprise gift on a friend’s front porch, kind of like a Halloween-themed May Day basket), you might choose to skip over this part of the book.
This is a book that I would have enjoyed very much growing up with my brothers. The simple crafts and clever activities could even be used as supplements to other areas of study with a little direction from a parent. 135 softcover pages. – Laura
