My soon to be 13 yo would love this book and with summer coming up you can never have too many options. It would be nice to go a summer without hearing the "I'm booooored" song. :)

Christina said...

We just borrowed the first book from the library and had a blast! We all agreed, "We need to buy this"! You should've seen the hari styles we attempted, the songs we sang, and the games we played! Now they have a #2? Very cool!!! Hula hoop, pogo stick, the dance... We'd do 'em all!!!

Sarah N said...

How fun! When my little girl gets older, she'll love the crafts and games! I can't wait to read this with her!

My daughter would love this book to prove to her brother she is smarter than him. The best part is this book will show girls to learn how to surf, get horseback riding tips, make a labyrinth, discover April Fool's Day history and pranks, how to organize a croquet tournament, find out about cowgirls, the Nobel Prize, being a detective and much more

I'm curious to see how my daughter would do with their surfing instructions.

I watched the video and the hula hooping is perfect for my daughter, who practices this everytime we're out, and the tennis instructions would be so great, if we could get it together and play, I'd love it!
