bearandtentpolaroid1Most adults have probably forgotten that summer is the best time for kids to finally be able to focus on things like how to make a go-cart; dog tricks; spy codes and ciphers; handclap games; lemonade stand recipes; how to build a campfire; rope knots; how to train a falcon; how to make a quick exit; how to tell a campfire story and how to get home using nature’s clues. Here are some books that inspire fun summertime adventures and help kids achieve their innermost wishes- ranging from the scientific to the fanciful.  -Wendy
