Booklist Review

Gr. 3^-5, younger with adult help. Ross, whose earlier craft books include Crafts from Your Favorite Bible Stories (2000) and Crafts for Kids Who Are Wild about Deserts (1999), now takes inspiration from the creation story in Genesis. Promising projects include the "Sunrise Cup Puppet," which allows children to make their personal sun rise at will, and the "Flying Bird," which shows kids how to make and shoot tissue-paper birds through the air by blowing them off drinking straws. Though Genesis is an Old Testament book, the beaded "Cross Pin" indicates a Christian perspective. Each project includes a list of materials, detailed instructions, and a one-line prayer of thanks, such as "Thank you, God, for the sun that comes up every morning." Bright ink-and-watercolor artwork by Sharon Lane Holm brightens every page. A useful resource for Sunday-school teachers. --Carolyn Phelan


School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 4-Twenty-eight clever and original designs illustrate a variety of Christian qualities. A loving heart beanbag, a bank for generous giving to missions, a bookmark to honor parents, a mealtime blessing book, a jar to fill with gratitude notes, and a mustard-seed necklace to encourage faith in God are among the crafts included. Each one has an appropriate Scripture quotation to reinforce its stated purpose. Cleanliness, perseverance, self-respect, thankfulness, compassion, empathy, courage, and patience are among the other virtues represented. The necessary materials include readily available items such as yarn, old socks, white glue, pipe cleaners, wiggly eyes, sticky notes, cans and jars, macaroni craft letters, poster paints, etc. The simply written, step-by-step directions are divided into "you need" and "what you do." Each project is clearly illustrated with cheerful ink-and-watercolor cartoon-style pictures. The type is well spaced, the format crisp and attractive. (Unfortunately, "psalm" is misspelled on one page.) Church-school teachers and parents will find these craft ideas useful and fun to create.-Patricia Pearl Dole, formerly at First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, VA (c) Copyright 2010.
