Book Review

Kathy Ross has done it again with another book full of fun and easy crafts called All New Crafts for Easter! I really like that the crafts in this book involve the use of recyclable materials as well as things you probably have on hand (i.e. rolls of toilet paper, plastic lemon juice container, puzzle pieces, cotton swabs and eggs for their eggshells). The crafts include baskets, chicks, bonnets, bunnies, flowers, wreaths, puppets, a favor and a place card made from a variety of materials all in the Easter or spring themes.

One of the parts I like best about All New Crafts for Easter is that the drawings in the book are so appealing. The pages of this book are decorated with attractive borders that reflect the predominantly Easter theme of the projects. The color schemes of the borders and the drawings of the crafts themselves make the pages of this book bright and attention grabbing. This entices the reader to want to make the projects.

Typically in Ross’ books, the materials and tools are illustrated in recognizable drawings so children can identify what is needed to make the craft. Clear drawings demonstrating the process also accompany the easy to follow step-by-step instructions for the crafts in All New Crafts for Easter. Compiling the instructions for the projects in this way facilitates the independent use of her book by children aged 7-8 and minimal adult assistance for those aged 4-6. This gives children a sense of accomplishment that they can attempt something on their own.
