Great book for simple outdoor projects for kids. Birdhouses are okay, but the bat and bug houses are creative and well designed.

Too difficult to read! The solidness of the spine made it hard to open all the way and it would have been impossible to lay flat if I had chosen to try one of the projects.

A wide variety of homes to make. Perhaps the most interesting part is that for each one, it tells who will be attracted to it, which is usually more than two birds or bees or bugs, depending on the project you choose. Some I have never seen, but I have seen others in this area, so pretty much all the patterns could be used here.
