There's this boy. Let's say he's somewhere between nine and thirteen years old or so. You'd like to see this kid get creative. You'd like to see him get some exercise. You'd like to see him get out from in front of the television. And you'd love for him to be motivated enough to find some stuff to do on his own. This boy NEEDS The Big Book of Boy Stuff!

Customer Rating: Summary: What a great book! Comment: When my son and I traveled over the weekend and he chose to bring The Big Book of Boy Stuff over his electronic games, I was thrilled! I have purchased this book for my 12 year old son and many of my nephews and his friends. Nothing warms my heart more than watching a group of boys surpass the video games and television to huddle with a book. They laugh, they share stories and have a blast. It's that kind of book. Yes, its gross! Yes, it focuses on things than may make a few adults squeamish!I have walked in on many dads reading the book with their sons and laughing hysterically. It's fun. It promotes bonding. And its downright FUNNY. Buy this book! Customer Rating: Summary: HE EVEN TOOK IT TO SCHOOL! Comment: In spite of all of the rave reviews, I still had my doubts about this book. Yet I finally purchased it for my 10-year-old grandson, and he loves it so much he even took it to school with him! (Considering that it is not a light book, and he already has a backpack full of books, I was really surprised!) I am overjoyed that he is getting so much pleasure out of this book. He has the whole family's attention, trying to guess the answers to riddles, and looking to see just what it is that interests him so much about this book that he can't put it down. What is most amazing is that he has totally ignored his video games since he got it a week ago! When he left for home afer a visit yesterday, his father called out to him, 'Al, don't forget the book.' Like I said, the whole family likes this book! If you are considering this book for a child around ten years of age, don't hesitate to buy it. The reviews are right - He will love it! Customer Rating: Summary: Great book for kids who hate books Comment: This book is funny and engaging- a perfect gift for those boys who are not big readers. I have given it to a number of children who hate to read. This is the first book that they will sit down and actually read w/o prompting. If your child is a better reader and you want something more educational, then get The Dangerous Book for Boys. However, I have found that boys of all ages love this book. Customer Rating: Summary: fabulous gift for boys Comment: This was a perfect gift for my nephew who is 7 years old. His sister has the "book of girl stuff". After he received his copy. He was alive with enthusiasm to read "his own boy book". This made him feel special and he consults his copy daily. I love writers that make children want to read. This is it!! Customer Rating: Summary: Fun Return to a less PC time Comment: Have a had a lot of laughs with my 7 year son. His school has become a typical place where they have "regulated" fun. This has some silly gags he can share with his friends.(No one will get hurt, maybe grossed out) A great deal of bathroom humor, but hey deep down it's always going to be fun joking with the guys. Well worth the money!!!
