Welcome to MarmeeDear & Co.!
A boy's handybook - designed to help teach boys basic home skills while they grow into young men. Lots of boys have a desire to learn to cook, fix a few things around the house, sew on their own buttons, plant a garden, make woodcrafts and more. But in our busy computer-driven age, these important life skills are often set aside.
The goal of this book is to come alongside the parent, and help build an interest in basic skills-cooking, home repair, camping, woodworking, sewing, first aid, knot tying, tools, gardening, hunting and finances. We are parents ourselves - we want our own boys to be proficient in all areas by the time they are grown. It is our hope and desire that the explanations in this book will inspire those who read it to try their hand at something new. Perhaps many will develop a new interest and pursue it further through their local library.
Maybe you have chef, a carpenter, a plumber, an electrician, a car mechanic, a woodcarver, a handyman, a tailor, or a landscaper growing up in your family -- and you don't even know it yet!Discover something new with your child-together we hope you will enjoy preparing your son for his future homefront. By: Mrs. Martha Greene & Mrs. Gail Kappenman ...between them they have 18 children and 11 of them are boys! (This book was published before the 18th was born.)See preview of SAMPLE PAGES here.
