Booklist Review

Ages 5^-8. This title in the Crafts for All Seasons series provides 29 ideas for winter projects, including a reindeer puppet, a dreidel banner, a Kwanza magnet, and an outdoor sun catcher made of ice. Bordered by scenes related to the holiday or picturing children at home and at play, the colorful illustrations show the project in progress and completed. The step-by-step instructions are generally easy to follow and use accessible materials. The text directly addresses kids, though adult supervision is sometimes required to sort through occasionally confusing instructions or help with projects that require degree of precision in cutting, such as the hanging potpourri. No background on the holiday provided, but this multicultural, religiously inclusive book features some unusual and fun ideas for teachers and parents as well as kids, many of which can easily be adapted for any holiday or purpose. --Shelle Rosenfeld


School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2-Ross is a proven veteran of children's crafts. This title rounds out her seasonal collection with 29 imaginative, easy-to-do, and fun activities. The clear instructions are accompanied by colorful illustrations. Besides a snowman pin, an icy sun catcher, and a lace snowflake, there are ideas for specific holidays such as a dreidel, Martin Luther King Jr. Day banners, reindeer and groundhog puppets, bird valentines, and Purim treat holders. An excellent choice for winter programs.-Jennifer J. Gallant, Cleveland Public Library, OH (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
