My Thoughts on 100 Things to Know Before You Grow Up
This book is precisely what the title says it is. It’s a book containing 100 things you should know before you grow up. There are about two page spreads for each thing, so the book is small, but thick. It’s over 200 pages long, with information on what to do in an emergency, how to take care of a pet, and how to solve problems.
It’s not a book of facts or figures, but it’s full of ideas, suggestions, and concepts. For example, you could learn how to make a French macaroon, how to express yourself, and how to respectfully disagree with someone.
It’s a fun book for kids to browse through. My kids enjoyed looking through the pages and picking out which things they wanted to learn or practice.
