Type of Reference: Handbook
Description: This is a reference book for young boys grade 4 and older I felt it would be useful for many projects as well as boys who want to just get off the couch and try some do it yourself projects. It contains many projects that include easy to read instructions.
Content and Scope: The information appears very detailed and has labels along with pictures. It is easy to read. It uses very cost effective projects and easy instructions for completing projects
Accuracy, Authority, and Bias- The author of this book when it was originally published in 1890 was Daniel Beard, who was instrumental in establishing Boy Scouts of America. He held great knowledge in being creative with crafts for boys that were easy to construct. I feel he is in an authoritative position and trust that his information is accurate.
Arrangement- The book is arranged in easy to read format and has pictures and easy to read instructions so that you can easily construct some of the crafts on a do it yourself basis.
Relation to Similar Works: It is similar to style and structure to a Boy Scout Handbook featuring easy to read instructions and projects.
Timeline and Permanence: This information would remain up to date for many years. It is currently the Centennial Edition so I would recommend updating when newer versions come available because it is such a popular handbook.
Rationale for Selection: I feel this information would be helpful to young boys as well as entertaining. I think it would make a great addition to our library. I thought it was very organized in content. I was very familiar with this book because I used it myself for a project of making a kite. It was easy to follow and read.
Professional Review: This reference was reviewed in Booklist.
