As a retired teacher, I never like to hear the whine, "I'm so bored!" This little book by Aubre Andrus is a gift to children and adults as well. Filled with wonderful ideas for games, crafts, and recipes, it holds a little girl's attention throughout a listless, rainy day. But there's more. Each quiz helps the child to discover her own talents and interests, leading her to an activity to match. In time, the child knows how to find her own activities without total reliance on a nearby adult. The other day I was thrilled to hear my little grandchild ask, "Nana, I'm feeling a little bored. Do you have that book?" Yes! Self-reliance is so much healthier than self-pity!
