Wonderful way to teach home economics
This book is simply wonderful for teaching teens about practical life skills. The lessons are short and to the point, there are hands-on activities, and the layout of the book is user-friendly and pretty. I have not found a book that does a better job in teaching what I would like my children to know when it comes to home economics.
