Book Review

The first thing that I like about this book is the important note to children, parents and teachers on the contents page at the beginning of the book. It outlines the age restrictions for the crafts as well as a reminder that young children should be supervised when engaging in any of the activities in this book. There is also a rating system in the Table of Contents with a scissors symbol next to those crafts which crafts require adult supervision. I like that this whole book is very helpful with clear instructions for the craft projects contained in its pages.

Each craft is displayed in a two-page spread of colorful photos depicting the materials used with step-by-step instructions accompanying the photos. The directions are easy to follow and the final products are attractive and inspiring. Following the instructions for each craft there is a section called Use your imagination with a light bulb symbol next to it. This extra hint outlines ways to extend the craft by creating it in a different way.

Even though some of the crafts may require adult assistance depending on the age and capabilities of the child making the craft there is an opportunity for children to learn/practice such skills as drawing, cutting, gluing and design (i.e. Glamorous Gift Bag). At the back of the book there is a list of suppliers for the materials used in the book as well as a useful book/video/web site list for more information on making crafts.
