The Outdoor Handy Book: For Playground, Field and Forest (Paperback)
(This book cannot be returned nor exchanged.)
Although the present book is addressed to the same class of readers, it is neither a substitute for nor a supplement to " The American Boy's Handy Book," from which it will be found to differ in scope and character. " The American Boy's Book of Sport" (The Outdoor Handy Book) is not intended as an encyclopaedia of games.
The purpose of the book is to deal only with subjects whose practical character meets the especial need of the boy who demands explicit and intelligent explanations of what is of use to him. The importance of early training for children in the use of their hands. It is with the purpose of stimulating this sort of schooling that the author appeals to parents and boys to encourage the home production of kites, boats, and sleds, etc.; for the ingenuity and self-reliance thus developed are valuable qualities in a boy or man.
This is an EXACT reproduction of a book published 1896.
