Your child is bored with school? Give him or her a DIY kids book. Your kid may not thank you just yet. But in time, your gift is likely to be appreciated–if not appreciate in value.
The book in question is a step-up from the good-old coloring book. It teaches children to be independent and to build their own things. Rather than buying them toys at Christmas or birthdays, you’re teaching them how to fish rather than doling out the fish yourself.
The coloring book helps improve your child’s creativity. DIY-instruction builds his or her own determination to solve problems and find solutions. Pick the best book for your child by word of mouth. Other parents may have some special recommendations.
Also, consider the quality of the illustration. When drawings or photographs are not constructive enough, you risk alienating the kid from the project at hand. The quality of the instruction is likewise instructive. Together, they must work hand-in-hand to ensure the child’s success.
