Book Review

What I like best about Crafts for Halloween and other books by Kathy Ross is the simple, straightforward style in which she presents the craft projects. There are color illustrations of the materials and tools as well as illustrated step-by-step instructions for each project in the book. This style of presentation benefits children in their ability to make one of the crafts in this book with little or no parental assistance depending on the age of the child. I like it when the author is interested in the child’s success making the project. It gives them pride and better self-esteem when they are able to complete a project especially if it is something in which they are really interested in.

The presentation of the book also extends to the way the pages are decorated. The banners of Halloween related symbols (pumpkins, bats, ghosts, witch hats, stars, owls, spiders, monster faces, black cats, candy corn and grave stones) at the top and the bottom of a page frame the craft projects on that page. Another thing I like about this book are the illustrations of the completed projects to give children an idea of what the craft they are making could look like. Some of the projects (i.e. Sock Pumpkin, Pumpkin Numbers Game and the Talking Pumpkin Puppet) also have examples of variations of pumpkin faces you can use to decorate the craft.

Favorites:

  • Sock Pumpkin
  • Milk Carton Witch
  • Haunted House Treat Carrier
  • Hairpin Ghost Necklace
  • Stuffed Sock Bat
