Amazing Michigan coloring book

Lighthouses for Kid This book is noteworthy for the way in which the activities are related to the information in the text. The opening stories about keepers' kids will engage readers. Details of personal experiences, such as a "flying Santa," women keepers, and life aboard a lightship, appear in boxed insets. While making a lighthouse cake or a sponge painting is more fun than scientific, other projects demonstrate the science behind these structures. BKS17 Soft cover $14.95
Learn The Ropes
16 Knots to Know - Knowing a couple of decent knots by heart comes in handy. Kids still love rafts, canoes, fish lures and kits. Sailors had to "learn the ropes," and many kids love to experiment and actually see for themselves how knots made perfect practical sense. An IPod may help you to find something , but it wont keep your pants from falling down!

B is for Beacon
