When picking up any sort of book with a title like Maker Dad I always have a little twinge of "why do any of the genders of the participants involved matter?" That being said, Mark Frauenfelder certainly has every right to call his book Maker Dad as it is all about maker projects he did with his daughters, in addition to being a delightful book.
Maker Dad is filled with a fantastic collection of well explained projects that would appeal to a wide range of interests. I can't wait to try out some of these project ideas on my own, and see how they can be adapted to the library setting (particularly helping kids learn to create games using Scratch, I've been wanting to do some programming activities for ages). Great book for anyone looking for fun projects to do with their children.
