Have you ever wanted to know how to become a spy? Well,The Real Spy's Guide To Becoming A Spy by Peter Earnest is downstairs in the children's room, so that you can learn how to be one. You'll learn how to improve your memory, make quick sketches, and how to tell if someone is lying. What else can you find on the shelves? You might want to try one of the many experiments from Usborne's 100 Science Experiments. I think I might try out the foaming monster or maybe I'll create my own paper. Jazzy Jewelry, Pretty Purses and More! by Kathy Ross features all kinds of neat accessories that you can make on your own, such as a pegasus charm that you can put on your backpack or butterfly sneaker clips. The directions are easy to follow and most of the materials you'll find at home. :-) Here's the rest of the nonfiction books that have just come in:
