It’s that time of year again, with the sound of children whining “I’m booored!”
Coming to the rescue is Unbored: The Essential Field Guide to Serious Fun By Elizabeth Foy Larsen, Joshua Glenn, illustrated by Heather Kasunick and Mister Reusch, (Macmillan/Bloomsbury).
This compendium of activities and facts is a great way to get the kids out of their parents’ hair for a few hours. It’s the title that I’ve been waiting for after rolling my eyes at The Dangerous Book for Boys. It’s an essential purchase for the children’s librarian looking for fresh programming ideas for the afterschool crowds.
