The Bulletin Dozen is a monthly theme-based booklist available as an online-only Bulletin feature. Since we're awfully fond of bakers here at the Bulletin, we thought we'd adopt their philosophy of generosity and throw in an extra one or two when we have them to offer--so don't expect an even dozen. Please feel free to copy, download, or link to these lists. We ask only that you cite the source. See the archive for lists from previous months.

"I'm Bored!": Books about Things to Make and Do
--selected by Jeannette Hulick

By the time August rolls around, many parents and kids (not to mention public librarians) are at their wits' end. Families have returned from vacations, many summer camps and classes are over and done, and trips to the pool have lost their novelty--what's a bored kid to do? Plenty, with the right book! Below are a number of titles to give kids (and their adults) a second wind and some fresh ideas for things to make and things to do before the school year starts up again.
