While this book was originally intended for the old with surplus leisure, its value for the young with scattered or undirected energies is an evident one. The material is divided into four sections:- things to do; things to make; things to collect; things to learn. Basic information regarding equipment, groups to join, how to organize the program, books to read, periodicals, and so, on make this a valuable compilation dealing with more than 100 hobbies. A staple for school libraries, for parents and teachers, for recreational group leaders. By the author of The Creative Use of Leisure.
