    Description"The Classic Wonder Book" is packed with magical imagery, imagination-provoking activities that promote together time, games and crafts, facts to marvel over on subjects that are of particular interest to kids, and supporting excerpts from poetry, literature and notable quotes, to create a collectible volume that can be pulled out at bedtime, on rainy days, or anytime at all. The engaging, multi-layered mix of material makes this an irresistible book for browsing and the perfect foundation for family adventures - whether they are ones of shared discovery in the pages of the book or interactive extensions from it. Developed in conjunction with experts on childhood development, the activities are keyed to child's developmental skills, so parents know the exact benefits of each shared experience. For example, the pages on fireflies show a beautiful image of fireflies lighting up the night sky, offer information on how fireflies make their light, linger on the Robert Frost poem Fireflies in the Garden (Here come real stars to fill the upper skies,/and here on earth come emulating flies...), and then send kids out to make their own firefly house and catch some in the backyard. The book is broken down into nine main sections: Outdoor Essentials, Animal Adventures, Firsts, Crafts and Construction, Celebrations, Make Believe, Foods of Childhood, Indoor Fun and Games, and Bath Time, Baby Powder, & Bedtime. It includes a resource section of recommended books, films, music, theater, and dance, as well as patterns for making various projects throughout the book. Some sample subjects include: Building a sand castle, Walking in the woods, Digging to China at the beach, Listening to sea shells, Identifying wildflowers, Twirling in circles, Swinging, Pumpkin picking, Grow a vegetable garden, Plant an herb garden, Making forts, Running through the sprinkler, Puddle jumping, Shooting stars, Campfire spooky stories, Backyard camp-out, Flashlight tag, Beading and jewellery making, Volcano making, Make a potholder, Sidewalk chalk, Portrait silhouette, Waxpaper leaves, Dollhouse, Be a superhero, Put on a show, Be a magician, Caramel apples, Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, S'mores, Ice cream, Corn on the cob, Hand shadow puppets, Flashlight stories under the blankets. From a bookplate that allows readers to personalize the book for their own family bookshelf to an inscription that reads, If we take care of the moments, the years will take care of themselves, the Wonder Book promises enriching family interludes. It is a warm, inviting book to treasure and share and to return to over and over again.
