The Kids’ Own Book of Stories & Things to Do
Alive and Aware
Hodder & Stoughton Sydney
If you’re a kid, finding a tap at school that doesn’t spurt can be what life is all about. Perhaps Glen Tomasetti’s story ‘Ella makes a Friend’, highlights the tone of The Kids’ Own Book – gentle stories to help children lean evenly into life.
But the book is not a story book. You can learn how to make masks out of old detergent containers; how to take fingerprints; how to make yummy, wafer-thin leaves out of chocolate; how to make a carrying bag out of an old pair of jeans; and how to make a fabulously slippery water slide in your own back yard with just a hose and a piece of plastic sheeting.
