" So fun. How to build a simple lean to fort like a weaving loom. Using logs and sticks. Stick boats. Backyard fun . Check out again. " said.

" We really loved this book, our two older children go to Cubs and found some great ideas in here for projects. The instructions are really clear and easy to follow and there are some unusual suggestions alongside things you would expect. We've used the book a lot and had great fun. " said.

" Sticks and Stones is a fun way to help get your kids outdoors. The author provides easy to follow instructions for shelters, tripod and many other projects. The author also challenges the reader to go further and expand their knowledge learning math and science along the way. " said.

" I need to remember that not everyone has access to the outdoors that we do living in rural upper Michigan. That being said, even those who have easy access will find project to do from this gem of a book. My grandchildren will love the projects we can do right in my back yard. Well organized, good extension possibilities and wonderful photos. " said.

" As a mom of 6 this book was so helpful I gave me any more ideas and I could ever have thought of made a lot of time that would have been boring extremely fun for my children I would suggest this to any friends for parents that have children. This author had amazing ideas and great talent I look forward to seeing more. " said.

"This book would be a great book for Girl or Boy Scout Leaders. Also for anyone who does outdoor family camping to introduce your child to the wonder of outdoors. I am all for outdoor activities in exchange for tv or computers. This book teaches everything from Building a survival shelter, A hotel for bugs, a simple seesaw, bubble wands, nature blocks, building a campfire ring to making land art. Each one has materials needed, a design challenge, and the process of doing it with photos. This book is a great way to get your child outdoors and have some quality family time. I recommend this book for children 7+. " said.

"This is a brightly illustrated, fun book full of projects for kids to do outside involving sticks, logs and branches. There are 30 projects, such as building a tipi-style play fort, making a stick catapult, and making a log birdfeeder with peanut butter birdseed in it. The steps are very detailed and color photos accompany all the projects.

Kids are likely to get a lot of inspiration from the book, particularly if they live in the country or have access to forests and other places with lots of larger logs and sticks. Some kids may feel frustrated by how many involve lots of large branches or more complicated steps and sometimes power tools and/or adult help.

My rating system:

1 = hated it
2 = it was okay
3 = liked it
4 = really liked it
5 = love it, plan to purchase, and/or would buy it again if it was lost

I read a temporary digital ARC of the book for the purpose of review.
" said.

"I received a DIGITAL Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

From the publisher, as I do not repeat the contents or story of books in reviews, I let them do it as they do it better than I do
