Kid Pickers: How to Turn Junk into Treasure (Paperback)
The star of the hit television show American Pickers shares his love of treasure-hunting with kids.
Mike Wolfe's love for "picking" started with old bikes, cigar boxes, and other collectibles people may have called "junk." A self-taught picker, the TV star now shares his passion for picking antiques with his enthusiastic kid audience, and offers tips on collecting, sorting through flea market offerings, asking relatives about family heirlooms, and much, much more. In the process, kids will pick up history, research skills, and new hobbies galore (and maybe even help clean the attic).
Kids love treasure-hunting. Kid Pickers is a fun and practical resource from one of the most popular pros around.
Lily Sprengelmeyer, co-author of Kid Pickers, is a third-grade elementary school teacher. She has been a lifelong picker, growing up in her father’s eclectic antique store, La Belle Epoque in Galena, Illinois, where Mike Wolfe was a regular. She continues to reside in Galena.
