Unbored is the guide and activity book every modern kid needs. Vibrantly designed, lavishly illustrated, brilliantly walking the line between cool and constructive, it's crammed with activities that are not only fun and doable but also designed to get kids engaged with the wider world. With contributions from a diverse crowd of experts, the book provides kids with information to round out their worldview and inspire them to learn more. From how-tos on using the library or writing your representative to a graphic history of video games, the book isn't shy about teaching. Yet the bulk of the 350-page mega-resource presents hands-on activities that further the mission in a fun way, featuring the best of the old as well as the best of the new: classic science experiments, crafts and upcycling, board game hacking, code-cracking, geocaching, skateboard repair, yarn bombing, stop-action movie-making-plus tons of sidebars and extras, including trivia, best-of lists, and Q and As with leading thinkers whose culture-changing ideas are made accessible to kids for the first time.
Just as kids begin to disappear into their screens, here is a book that encourages them to use those tech skills to be creative, try new things, and change the world. And it encourages parents to participate. Unbored is exciting to read, easy to use, and appealing to young and old, girl and boy. Parents will be comforted by its anti-perfectionist spirit and humor. Kids will just think it's awesome.

Elizabeth Foy Larsen

Elizabeth Foy Larsen's stories have appeared in dozens of publications, including The New York Times, Mother Jones, Slate, Travel and Leisure, and FamilyFun.

She's also the co-author of the bestselling Unbored series of family activity books, which taught her how to stop feeling like her family's office manager and enjoy exploring Minneapolis and St. Paul with her husband and three kids.

A native Minnesotan, Elizabeth tries to overcome her aversion to cold weather by knitting Scandinavian mittens, cross-country skiing, and taking saunas and jumping into holes in the ice.
