Booklist Review

Gr. 4-6. Having produced a whole string of top-quality craft books, Ross has become a synonym for creative. This exceptional new book of 29 holiday gifts will keep her stellar reputation intact. Pulling new ideas out of a tired old Christmas hat isn't easy, but Ross finds a way, including such fresh ideas as a "Countdown to Christmas Tree," a 25-day Advent project using a metal cookie tin lid, paper, magnets, and a little razzle-dazzle. Most of the 29 projects are fresh, a rare achievement for a craft book, and even the reruns have been give new sparkle, thanks to Ross' ingenuity. A must for teachers, day-care professionals, and anyone who loves making holiday hoopla. --Kelly Milner Halls


School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-6-Ross offers 29 handmade gifts for children to create for their families and friends. Most of the materials can be found in the home and often involve recycling items (old felt-tip pen caps, film canisters, laundry-bottle caps, Christmas catalogs). For example, discarded children's socks can be used to make a "Jingle Bell Bracelet" and a cap for a "Snowman Antenna Ball" (useful for locating the car in crowded mall parking lots). The lists of materials are clearly illustrated as are the step-by-step instructions. Although there are a proliferation of holiday craft books, this one holds a rare place among them with ideas for gifts that the intended audience can make without adult help. Some of these crafts might also be valuable to preschool teachers looking for new variations on tried-and-true themes.-G. C. (c) Copyright 2010.
