Format: Paperback
This is a favorite from my childhood. My brother and I pored over its pages in search of games to play, things to build, art, or scary stories. Each section links the activities to American history or how this is a part of American life. A great resource for home schoolers.

Make Cheese? Make and use a quill pen? Learn to do handwriting analysis? A thick repository of kid curious topics that makes a great source for anyone who shares the spirit of the young adolescent. I have used this book as a resource for almost twenty years. Makes a great gift for that aspiring student teacher!

This book is a great resource for the "all american" crafts. The little history that the book gives on each craft is a great learning tool for childen of all ages. I highly recommend this book to anyone who works with children from the sunday school teacher to the scout leader.

I received this as a birthday present when I was 10 years old in 1980, and it was my FAVORITE BOOK. I pored over it hour after hour and was just fascinated by everything in it. I still have that copy (which is completely identical to the one being sold today), and it is the most tattered thing imaginable. A couple years ago I bought another copy simply to have a clean version of it, but I still can't do away with the 25 year old copy I have, simply for the sake of sentimentality. I have now bought well over 10 copies of this and have given one to everyone I know. I give it as a gift to older children (7 and older), and to friends that I have who work with children (nannies/teachers). I can't wait until my daughter is old enough to enjoy this book herself. It is truly one of the best books for children of all time.

I was a little girl growing up in Japan, and took this book out of our school library every week for about three years. I pored over the stories, crafts and fun and loved every minute of it. I hope you love it as much as I did. I was eventually given a copy by a librarian friend of mine, and although it's in rough shape I treasure it!

I LOVED this book as a girl in 1979 and am SO glad to find it here. I still remember all the stuff I learnt from it, and I'm ordering it for my own son.

I also like knowing it will not be full of "fun internet links" and will actually have kids DOING, not just reading or watching.

Kids America has served as a great resource in my classroom for almost twenty years. Kid curious topics like handwriting anaylsis, candle making, crafts of all sorts and even how to make cheese are among hundreds of just fun things to do. I highly recommend it

We had a copy when our girls were growing up and they loved it. We now have grandchildren and both of our daughters wanted a copy. The oldest had the original one and now our youngest has one. Their kids enjoy the stories too.
