Amanda has been sweet-talked (tricked!) into organizing the dreaded Middle school Valentine’s Day school dance. Burdened with a promise to deliver the dance, a reluctant school, a meddlesome bully, and a reputation to uphold for delivering projects, the Project Kids are in big trouble. They will definitely have to learn some new skills - and break a few rules along the way in order to pull it off!
Este livro apresenta conceitos básicos da Gestão de Projetos aos jovens, através de uma história divertida e curtas lições ensinadas a uma das raparigas pelo seu pai, que é (obviamente) um Gestor de Projeto. Ela aplica o que aprende e de repente as raparigas estão à frente dos rapazes que começaram a construir sem um plano.
Amanda was terrified. Sure, she and her friends had built a huge tree house and an awesome haunted house together - but now she was in way over her head. Those projects had been for fun - but this one was going to be marked! She and her lab partners have to do a class project for the School Science Fair - but they have absolutely no idea where to start or even what to do.
A surprise announcement brings the Project Kids back together in a two-school competition to build the best Halloween display.

Join the Project Kids as they embark on their bravest adventure yet – to build the Scariest Haunted House – Ever.
The Ultimate Tree House Project introduces basic Project Management concepts to children through an entertaining, funny story and simple lessons taught to one of the children by her father who is (of course) a Project Manager. She applies what she has learned and suddenly the girls are leaping ahead of the boys who had “just started building" - without a plan.
