'A favorite of kids and parents since the 1970s, Housebuilding for Children offers step-by-step illustrated instructions for building seven different houses with a description of the necessary tools and equipment. Youngsters will learn the joy of building and using their own tools, setting up their own workshop, and building any one of seven wonderful houses. More than 100 black and white photographs and 150 illustrations and diagrams teach children and parents how to set up a workshop, get started using basic carpentry tools, and finally build their own wood-frame house, factory-built house, glass house, post-and-beam house, junkyard house, tree house, and now an A-frame house. This inimitable classic is sure to bring hours of learning and fun to an entirely new generation of parents and children.'
