9780982053959: How to Do Nothing with Nobody All Alone by Yourself
Críticas:

"Every great book reminds us that we're all alone in the world. At least this one provides us with the means to entertain ourselves while we're here." -- Lemony Snicket "It's what you'd get if you crossed the Boy Scout Handbook with The Anarchist's Cookbook, and it's definitely the wildest how-to manual I've seen this year." --Greg Cowles, The New York Times Paper Cuts blog "What a joy to give children something they can do without 'hollering for help'...How to Do Nothing with Nobody All Alone by Yourself is replete with the sort of fun that childhood should be, and too rarely is." --Blogcritics.com "His book is timeless and remarkably timely in both spirit and hands-on ingenuity." --Brainpickings "Had I known about it, Robert Paul Smith's 1958 book, 'How to Do Nothing with Nobody All Alone by Yourself,' would have been my Bible. Smith gets down to the nitty-gritty on the first page: 'These are things you can do by yourself,' he writes. 'You don't need any help from your mother or your father or anybody.'"--Laurie Hertzel, Minneapolis Star Tribune "This classic 1958 guide reintroduces kids to those natural urges that have to turn random objects into crazy great stuff...Readers will love that everything in this book was invented by kids and passed along by kids, that nothing costs money and that each of the projects is a seat-of-the-pants creation."--Where the Best Books Are! "You'll never hear 'I'm bored' again with this illustrated guide to simple, nostalgic fun."--Canadian Family

Reseña del editor:

Remember how to make a spool tank? How to whip apples? What to do with a discarded umbrella? Whether "pennies" comes before or after "spank the baby" in mumbly-peg? And your kid never knew any of these things in the first place, to forget in the second place? Robert Paul Smith remembers, and he has set it down for all to see -- these things and many others, like rubber-band guns, and slings, and clamshell bracelets, and the collection, care, and use of horse-chestnuts. This book frees children from video games for a few hours, a handbook on the avoidance of boredom, a primer on solitude -- a child's declaration of independence. It reveals "how to do nothing with nobody all alone by yourself" -- real things, fascinating things, the things that we and our parents did as kids. It's a book for kids, but parents are not prohibited from reading it.
