  • 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.

    Bought this for my boyfriends' younger brother and he loves it! Had it sitting around the house before gifting it to him and 3 other gentlemen (adults) looked in over and all wanted a copy. Ordered extras on my next purchase to give out as Christmas gifts! Great gift for the man in your life, especially one with sons!!!
