Summary

Summary

It's a cool, cool world when you're a girl-filled with fabulousness, fun and friendship. "Tween"-agers just adore showing how unique they can be in all they do. That's why any girl (even if she can't draw a straight line!) will become a creative dynamo, bubbling over with imagination and ideas, once she takes a look at these hip designs. First, at home: a girl's room is her castle-so let her rule, and decorate it like a queen! It won't cost a king's ransom when she herself crafts a big blue furry mirror with holographic stars, a lampshade with trendy beaded fringe, or painted drawer pulls. Fake fur covered notebooks and a keep-everything-in-its-place locker organizer will make a splash at school. Nothing's more important than good pals-and they'll have a blast exchanging homemade lip gloss, glitter gel, friendship jewelry, and photo albums. From great things to wear to special gifts for friends, girls will delight in the more than 50 things they can make to celebrate the most important parts of their life.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-6 Ranging in broad categories from home-decorating tips to school supplies, things to give as gifts, and personal items, the craft ideas presented here will inspire and produce polished finished products, all with colorful, feminine flare. The instructions are well delineated and the materials lists are complete. The supplies may be a little more sophisticated than those required in most books for this audience, but they are available in craft and fabric stores. Some of the projects from the "Home" section include lampshades, a fur-framed mirror, painted sheets, a Hawaiian bed skirt, bedazzling picture frames, and a clock box. For "Friends," there are beaded bracelets with polymer clay canes, homemade lip gloss in imaginative containers, herb-stuffed pillows, and dog and cat gifts. There are also informational pages about the Muses, zodiac signs, and the influence of herbs on dreams. The upbeat writing, trendiness of the crafts, and colorful photos make this a real winner. -Lynda Ritterman, Atco Elementary School, Waterford, NJ (c) Copyright 2010.
