Books for Boys CLub


This week's book of choice is Indiana Jones: The Ultimate Guide, by Jim Luceno. This is one of those titles that is jammed packed with detailed photographs and useless captions that borders on being a sensory overload. What makes this book so awesome is that if your boys are anything like mine, you will find that your presence while they are interacting with this book is not needed, appreciated, or desired. We checked this one out last week and they have spent countless minutes fully involved with this book without one bit of fighting, tattling, or whining! Sounds too good to be true, doesn't it? Dummy that I am, I have been unsuccessful at finding many other activities that have been able to quell the savage beast that unfurls when my boys are within eye shot of one another. But, leave it to Indiana Jones to waltz in here and have them on their best behavior in moments. I knew this book would be a hit since we own the entire Indiana Jones outfit, which they fight over, and my oldest son aspires to become an archaeologist like the great Dr. Jones. I don't have the heart to tell him that if there are actually Russian spies chasing him, he's going to need a lot more than a leather whip to save his life.
