Summary
A wonderfully comprehensive book of design, building, and architecture for kids aged 8 to 12. Steven Caney's Ultimate Building Book is the latest learning blockbuster from an author who really knows how to connect with children's imaginations. It's packed with exciting construction projects that will keep them engaged for hours on end. The fun begins with clearly written, superbly illustrated explanations of 20 different building systems made from simple household materials. Then, children can sink their fingers into more than 100 easy-to-follow architectural activities using those systems. The text encourages them to use the activities as inspiration for their own inventions. They'll be introduced to the huge variety of materials that can be used for building. Most of which are right in front of them and the pros and cons of each--including its life span and potential for reuse. Interesting, informative sidebars offer amazing insights into the architectural and design properties of everything from drinking straws to yurts. Appendices for parents and teachers provide helpful hints on encouraging building play and providing an ideal environment for such activity
