How To Books

How to books

A How To Book is an informal, often short, description of how to accomplish some specific task. These books are meant to help, assist or inspire life-changing methods and attitudes.  One of the earliest how-to books was published in 1569 by Thomas Wight and entitled, A booke of the arte and maner, how to plant and graffe all sortes of trees.  Our Papa ‘Ekolu had the opportunity to explore the various how to books (cookbooks, origami, how to draw, how to write instructions, poetry) in the learning center.  One group wrote instructions on how to pack a crystal chandelier.  Instruction sheet included: a heading, what you will need, and detailed packing instructions.
