    For Dummies books are so helpful. They make things seem so simple! We have so many and have used them for our son for some of the math classes he has had. We also have many others! The party prizes look amazing! Especially the baking one!

    I also have a number of For Dummies titles on my bookshelf. Initially it was software or technology. I’ve broadened my topics to include Philosophy, Mandarin Chinese, Chess, Guitars, and some wonderful cooking and personal finance books, just to name a few. I’d love to have a completely yellow and black bookcase!

    I love the “For Dummies” books! My first one was “DOS FOR DUMMIES”, so glad I don’t have to worry about trying to figure out DOS anymore!!!
