"It's a book! It's a guide! It's a way of life!"* The exciting new book in the acclaimed, best-selling, award-winning UNBORED series: Here comes UNBORED Adventure.
      UNBORED Adventure has all the smarts, innovation, and freewheeling spirit of the original UNBORED and its 2014 spinoff, UNBORED Games, but with a fresh focus on encouraging kids to break out of their technopassivity and explore the world around them—whether that's a backyard, a downtown, or a forest. Combining old-fashioned favorites with today's high tech possibilities, the book offers a goldmine of creative, constructive activities that kids can do on their own or with their families. From camouflage techniques, survival skills, and cloud-spotting advice to instructions on how to build an upcycled kite or raft, to using apps to navigate and explore, it's all here—along with comics that diveinto the secret history of everything from bicycling to women explorers. A fun corrective to our overanxious parenting culture, UNBORED Adventure encourages kids to become more independent and resilient, to solve problems and ask questions, and to engage with both their community and natural environment.
      The original UNBORED is already a much beloved, distinctly contemporary family brand. Along with UNBORED Games, UNBORED Adventure extends the franchise in a handy, flexibound format so that the whole family can enjoy themselves indoors, outdoors, online, and offline.
