Review

'it is the most practical lessons this book can teach a young outdoors enthusiast (how to build shelters and sun clocks) that make The Stick Book something special'



When I leafed through the book, I was so enthralled that I immediately planned a den-building party and picnic for my daughter's tenth birthday.



This book, which offers over 70 interesting things to make or do with a stick, will open up a world of creativity: from fashioning a plain staff to wild weaving or making stick and paper lanterns. Simplicity and a deep satisfaction go together, as where two sticks and a piece of string achieve the sophisticated job of measuring the earth. There are loads of photographs to add inspiration. 



Fed up with your children's demands for the latest electronic gadgets? Why not give them a stick instead?

Delights in this most universal of playthings… I have been removing sharpened sticks from under beds all half term.

A book bursting with the most brilliant ideas - you will never have reluctant country-walkers again.

These ideas will help the whole family get more hands-on with nature.

A guide to the ultimate free toys for children...Packed with ideas to suit the most adventurous and boisterous youngsters  and those who'd rather take their time creating things to take home.

This book, which offers over 70 interesting things to make or do with a stick, will open up a world of creativity: from fashioning a plain staff to wild weaving or making stick and paper lanterns. Simplicity and a deep satisfaction go together, as where two sticks and a piece of string achieve the sophisticated job of measuring the earth. There are loads of photographs to add inspiration. 

Explores the almost limitless potential for play offered by sticks. It is an attractively packaged book of 70 activities for children in a handy format for stuffing into a rucksack or coat pocket. The book teems with colour photographs and the text is easy to follow.

Truly more ideas than you can shake a stick at!

Will open up a world of creativity: from fashioning a plain staff to wild weaving or making a stick and paper lanterns. Simplicity abd a deep satisfaction go together as when two sticks and a piece of string achieve the sophisticated job of measuring the circumference of the Earth.

What are you waiting for? Go outdoors, grab a stick, have The Stick Book handy, fire up your imagination and off you go. This is an amazingly different book bursting with ideas, a unique guide to fun and games, grab yourself one now!

Musical instruments, dens and bush craft are all within one's grasp, with a stick! (So is poking an eye out so do be careful.)

This book offers masses of suggestions for things to do with a stick, in the way of adventures and bush craft, creative and imaginative play, games and more.

A book jam-packed full of ideas of sticky stuff!...a great resource for practitioners.

This book might just get you out of one of those, 'Mammy I'm bored' situations.

Ideal for entertaining all ages.

This is an excellent addition to the authors' other books on outdoor play.

A great book to encourage outdoor play and exploration at very little cost!
