Book Review

I really like this book because is geared toward children and even though it is a small book, it has a good variety of beads you can make yourself. The title of the book Kids Can Easy Crafts Beads indicates the manner in which the information is being given (i.e. instructions). The materials, tools and the bead making process are all within the capabilities of children aged 4-8 and above with minimal adult assistance and supervision. The beads can be used to make necklaces, bracelets, ponytail holders, barrettes and even a mobile. Most of the beading projects include additional things you can do with the beads (variations of the colors and textures of the beads and different combinations you can use when making your jewelry) in a section called Fun Ideas to Try. I also like this book because the author isn’t telling you how you should make your jeweler project, just how to make the beads. There are illustrations of jewelry made using the beads but it is really up to you and your imagination how it will look in the end.
