The Useful Book: 201 Life Skills They Used to Teach in Home Ec and Shop
I was expecting some great ideas within its covers, but it quickly had me thinking more deeply than that. At 52 years old, I still remember a high school where we all had to take 1 quarter of Home Economics and Shop during our high school career. This is why I have made a point of helping my son learn about life in a variety of ways, from how to pay bills each month and how much it costs for groceries to cooking, home repairs and all the little things he will need to know as he reaches adulthood.
This is where The Useful Book really struck home for me.

I plan on making sure he has a copy in his boxes whenever he moves out and takes the first steps in his adult life and I would recommend you do the same. Everyone needs a great starter guide to life on their own, and The Useful Book is perfect for that. The tips and hints in The Useful Book range from cooking, sewing, domestic arts, to repairs and simple building projects to the basics of plumbing and electricity — just about every aspect of adult life They are presented in clear and complete language and enhanced by tons of graphics throughout.
The section on Laundry alone is enough to recommend the book.

I am sure we all remember that first time of having to wash our own clothes and the sometimes disastrous results. Why not give you child a head start in that department and help prevent a batch of white clothes that suddenly turn blue or pink in the wash. The book design is great for use as a research book when you REALLY need some information, but can also be scanned or read as its own personal Home Economics and Shop class — for those who never experienced it.
