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.

About the Author:

Mike Wolfe has been diggin' and pickin' through junk since the age of four. As the star of the History Channel hit show American Pickers, Mike travels more than 60,000 miles a year around the country "making a living telling the history of America, one piece at a time." He divides his time between LeClaire, Iowa, and Nashville, Tennessee, where he owns the store Antique Archaeology.

Lily Sprengelmeyer 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.

Chapter One
 

WHAT’S A KID PICKER?
BY SIMPLY PICKING UP THIS BOOK, chances are you’re probably a “picker” at heart, just like me. You’ve got a passion for rediscovering those once-forgotten items of our past, and the stories they tell. You love the excitement of hunting through old items, or those that were tossed aside to collect dust. You understand their importance because you picked it, and you’ve begun a new chapter in the life of your picked item … now, that’s cool.
So let’s forget about what something’s worth, or what everyone else around you likes. It’s time to create your own story; find your own Passion. That’s right, put on some old jeans, grab a flashlight, and set out for the journey that lies ahead. The adventure is all about finding—picking—items that will connect you closer to yourself and the people that surround you. Whether these items have been cherished in your family for centuries or you’ve uncovered a rusty broken wheel in your backyard, the point is it’s your pick and that’s what makes you a true Kid Picker.
As a seasoned picker myself, trust me when I say you’ve got all the tools you’ll need just by going out and finding what you like. My favorite memories as a Kid Picker were those in which I was the leader of my own journey, going out in search of whatever caught my eye. Curiosity will be your best guide (and, of course, this wonderful book you’re holding), as you are now the creator of your very own picking story. Join me by following the guidelines in the chapters ahead on searching, finding, collecting, sharing, and creating your own story. Your journey awaits, fellow Kid Pickers. What will your story be?

BEST PICK SO FAR: Old bottles found while digging in the dirt near his grandfather’s shop
