Show Off: How to Do Absolutely Everything. One Step at a Time.Show Off - How to Do Absolutely Everything. One Step at a Time.

Written by Sarah Hines Stephens, Illustrated by Bethany Mann

How many cool things can YOU do? The answer will amaze you — and the secrets are all in this witty and nearly wordless book.

This book is an absolute favorite of the boys.  They think it's the greatest thing.  There is a ton of great fun stuff, and some even educational.  I would definitely recommend it!  But I will warn you that there are a few things in there that may lead to some problems if your children actually attempt them.  The book includes some ways of boobie trapping different rooms in the house.  For example, how to turn the water from a faucet different colors.  Of course, I know a couple bloggers who's kids did this, without as fastr as I know any book to inspire them, and that inspires another bloggers kids to try it also!
So, just know, I warned you.  If your child fills his a closet with marbles, I am NOT responsible. I'd just suggest reading the book with them and reminding of the impending doom that may be fall them if they try SOME of the things in this book.  For now, my boys know better than to try some of this but they still find it hilarious to talk about.  And the book is still full of stuff they absolutely CAN do!  A great tool in the fight against boredom!
