We want to help create motivated and engaged young readers. This blog is about children's and YA literature (especially New Zealand), literacy research, and ways to get, and keep, kids reading.
This title is one of four in a series called Build it yourself, designed to have children creating and building a variety of projects that include: cars, forts, periscopes, flashlights, mini golf courses, and lemonade stands.
In Build your own car, rocket, and other things that go, you can make, besides the mousetrap car, a helicopter launcher, paddle wheel boat, water blaster rocket, foam flyer, and race car.
Each book begins with a list of tools, and tips for safety. All the projects are well laid out with step-by-step instructions, full-colour photographs, and include an estimated build time.
