Sullivan, father of two, shares his infectious enthusiasm for kids, kite-making, and ""kitchen alchemy'' in this self-illustrated collection of child-centered activities. From candlelight baths to bottle-bowling tournaments, each activity is designed as a parent-child endeavor. The first section suggests ways to enhance the day's routines: staging thematic meals (Mexican, monastery, etc.), or turning the bath into a fishing pond. The second section details more elaborate projects, such as science experiments and treasure hunts that use homegrown materials. Although this thin volume is primarily for parents who love to roll around on kids' turf, teachers also may find its ideas useful in the classroom. Geared for families with children aged310.
