  • Fathers and sons will love this book

    I was introduced to this book by my brother. It is a wonderful collection of basic knowledge that every young man (and lady) should know. It has great father/son projects like building a treehouse or a go cart but also has a great way of teaching kids all about the fun stuff kids can do. It's a great read for anyone at any age.
