Great little book but I still can't juggle. ( )

I can juggle three balls, but so far being able to juggle four has eluded me. This book didn't get me on the right track for that. :D ( )

Over the years, I've learned a lot from the Klutz Books. I've learned how to tie knots that I use often. I've learned how to throw a boomerang. But one of the most important skills that I've learned from the Klutz Books is how to juggle. The book, entitled “Juggling for the Complete Klutz” is in its 30th year of publication. I must have gotten one of the first editions of this book. It comes with beanbags and step by step instructions, along with illustrations and humor. By the end of the book, you'll be juggling!
I love these books! You can learn so much! I got this book when I was about 12 years old and learned how to juggle. This book is one of the ones that helped me with my love of reading, by reading and following instructions, I learned a skill! I juggled everywhere! In the car, in the house, on an airplane, and I still use this skill today. I taught kids in my church how to juggle using the methods I learned so long ago from this book. It comes with beanbags and easy to read and follow instructions. The book itself is durable and comes with a storage bag.
In a classroom, this book is best kept at the teachers desk. Students can use the book to increase reading comprehension. One student can read it, then the entire class can practice juggling as a reward for good behavior yet still be learning something while doing something enjoyable. The step by step method could then be applied to other tasks with the students illustrating their own instruction manuals. It could be used as a model for clear, instructional writing.

I personally know two people who learned to juggle from this book! The instructions are clear and the illustrations are helpful. Unfortunately, either I am more of a Klutz than this book anticipated or my dedication to the practice required is lacking (I suspect the latter).

This is a fun-to-read book to learn how to juggle, but besides juggling...it has, basic to advanced juggling tricks.

This was fun for me until I got to the actual juggling part. I was just juggling until one of the fuzzy, red, square, velvet balls fell onto the floor, and burst open!

I would highly recommend just buying the book and getting some DIFFERENT balls separate on Amazon or something. ( )
