Unbored: A Grandparent's New Best Friend (and Reference) 4 décembre 2012
Par Karen E. Stout - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
As a grandmother with 6 grandchildren ranging from 1-13 years of age, and as a former teacher, now professor of education, I find Unbored a refreshing change to the usual litany of "educational" activities generated to be "adult-approved." Instead, the activities leverage creativity, imagination, links to a world becoming increasingly technologically- and media-oriented, and commonplace materials and equipment. The activities are also wholistic--requiring planning from beginning to end. Additionally, children and youth can engage on their own, with friends, and with family members--including watchful parents and grandparents.

As a grandparent who wants to actively engage with my grandchildren, I appreciate such activities as "Make a Secret Book Safe," "Experimenting in the Kitchen," and my granddaughters are waiting for me to help them, "Construct a Mouse House." I want to spend my time with my grandchildren in a meaningful way--not in front of a movie or TV eating fatty popcorn and drinking sugary beverages. I also appreciate that the book taps experience from my generation, such as being home alone and cooking for yourself, melting a record to make a bowl, marbles, paper football, finger games, etc. I increasingly fear that these activities are getting lost in the world of video games and smart phone apps--which is not to say that these are necessarily bad, but instead to point out that it's a rich world that we can share with our grandchildren.

As an educator, one concern I've had for a long time is the loss of project-based learning in our schools. I remember making Valentine boxes, and the designing, planning, gathering materials, making and correcting mistakes, and having a finished product that reflected ME was a good way to learn to problem solve and make decisions in a child-centered activity. Unbored provides this type of learning, which the schools, with their emphasis on direct instruction, drill, and high stakes test preparation, have forgotten how to teach. Increasingly, when we look at whether our children are well-prepared from college, we realize that they don't have these skills, which in education, are called "self-regulation (planning, problem-solving, goal setting, etc.)." I believe Unbored helps move kids to be more self-regulated and to have fun while developing this much needed skill. It also promotes autonomy--which we want kids to have in this highly complex world--the ability and confidence to handle themselves on their own.

So, hip grandmothers (and grandfathers) with Smart Phones, who aren't afraid to get dirty, make mistakes, use a little technology and engage with media, this is the book for you! I just bought four for Santa Anonymous--every kid deserves a book written just for them--and a little subversiveness is highly needed in this overprotective environment that we now foist on our children.

A road map for rainy, and sunny, days 22 octobre 2012
Par Deborah Wassertzug - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Confession: My kids aren't quite old enough for this book. But the older one can read, and he's old enough to begin to aspire to bigger kid activities. And I'm still sufficiently in touch with my kid self to completely love the book as well. UNBORED has already staved off whines of, "I'm boooooooored." Once my kids are older, they can have fun with activities such as farting games and teaching me how to curse without cursing. Right now, we can already do some of the activities, such as geocaching, watching some of the suggested (and very fun-sounding) films, and getting crafty at home. I was a devotee of ZOOM! as a kid and treasured my copy of the ZOOM! Catalog. UNBORED is the ZOOM! Catalog for the 21st Century, and it couldn't have arrived at a better time.

Fun: How It's Made 13 novembre 2012
Par annonymos - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is definitely the perfect field guide for making your own fun, but it's so much more than that. It includes parenting tips, home remedies, and other contemporary child-rearing advice. It contains amazing reviews of books and movies from a variety of genres. These authors have a scope of knowledge so beyond my own, that I might not otherwise have introduced these books and movies to my children. AND it's for older kids, because in my house we have definitely outgrown sock puppets and paper plate masks (although both might work for our first stop-action film - see p. 232).

Remember Childhood Before It Got Ruined? 17 octobre 2012
Par David A. Hirmes - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
"Unbored" is amazing! It's like a time capsule of childhood fun.
This is the book that I have been looking for ever since I
had my daughter. I'm all for the car seats and bike helmets
etc, but childhood can seem so dull these days, so well...reasonable,
with no room for the mystery and discovery that makes
the world seem thrilling. I had fun as a kid and it wasn't always fun
the grown ups in my life made for me. I was an only child, always looking to
get unbored, and so I I ran around in the woods, made things out of junk,
climbed trees that were taller than I had the nerve for and generally
tried to see what would happen. Now I am a lily-livered adult, but I remember
the joy of building forts and cracking secret codes and doing explosive experiments.
I want my daughter to read this book in her bed at night with a flashlight after bedtime and
plot to take over the world with her friends...

By Jenny Offill (wife of David Hirmes)
