    *Starred Review* For decades, Storey Publishing has been teaching curious readers how to "garden, farm, cook, craft, build, fix, and heal." Now the "makers and doers" at Storey have compiled some of their favorite projects in this how-to book of how-to books, which couldn't have come at a better moment. Readers who find themselves with more time at home than ever before may just be ready for one or two . . . hundred new hobbies. These practical and obscure skills cover everything from changing a flat tire to bathing a chicken to shucking an oyster and building a homestead. Readers can ease in with simple tasks like making a terrarium and storing potatoes, or challenge themselves with french-braiding a horse's tail and capturing a swarm of bees. No matter how complex, each skill is broken down into simple steps and expertly explained alongside beautiful illustrations and photography. So much has been canceled or postponed lately, but the excitement for learning new things doesn't have to be one of them. Storey's Curious Compendium provides readers with the perfect book to spark a new interest or passion and have a lot of fun along the way. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
