Sticks and Stones

A Kid's Guide to Building and Exploring in the Great Outdoors
Melissa Lennig


Sticks and Stones gives boys, girls and their adults ideas for getting outside and creating safe, useful structures and objects using nature’s building supplies.

The book presents a treasure trove of building and engineering ideas for children to employ in the great outdoors using the materials made readily available to them, from cabins and tipis to bridges and dams.

In addition to structures, there are other ideas and projects for camping and the backyard, like a fire ring (explaining the types of fires, airflow and safety), the always useful tripod, a travois, a rock garden and toy boats. Along the way, there are multi-leveled reading opportunities in the form of quick features on considerations like mindfulness, campfire safety, mini design challenges and more.

Recommended for ages 8+.
