From Publishers' Weekly:

"The stick is perhaps the best-loved toy of all time, the starting point for endless adventures," note Schofield and Danks (Make it Wild!: 101 Things to Make and Do Outdoors) in their opening chapter. Here, they've collected dozens of activities, games, and crafts that use sticks as their basic ingredient for fun. Almost every idea is given both a full-color photograph and a page of instructions, so the book works best as inspiration. The projects are clearly ranked from one stick to three, with the three-stick projects requiring an adult's supervision. While the simplest selections-a game of (Winnie the) Pooh Sticks or making a loom for wild weaving with found natural objects-are easily grasped, some of the more complex projects-such as the one-string guitar or sun clock-need much more instruction than provided. This handy volume would be especially well-received by children who have access to a large swath of the outdoors, or those going on a camping trip. For future Henry David Thoreaus and Rachel Carsons, this book will open up new worlds outdoors. (Mar.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
