Booklist Review

Gr. 2^-4. Like other books in the Craft Mania series, each of these volumes offers a dozen simple project ideas using common, inexpensive materials. In the introductions, Irvin gives some tips on what kinds of materials (unwaxed paper cups, tacky glue) work best, some fast facts on American garbage production, and a plea to recycle egg cartons, paper plates, and paper cups into art projects. Egg Carton projects include making a collection box, finger puppets, and a game board. Children who check the introductory pages will be rewarded with the tip that tempera paint, specified in many of the projects, easily chips off polystyrene egg cartons. Readers who skip right to the projects will presumably learn the hard way. Paper Cup suggests ideas from the traditional cup-and-string telephone to a windsock to a model of a locomotive. In both books, each project is presented on a double-page spread with a list of materials, simple directions, "Other Ideas" for variations on the theme, and a number of brightly colored illustrations. These pictures, which look like digital art, show several stages of each project as well as the finished product. --Carolyn Phelan


School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2-These well-designed, well-organized crafts books require rudimentary materials and basic skills. The same introduction in both titles discusses the need to recycle household items and cites statistics about the enormous quantities of trash generated annually. Although the projects are not unusual, the books are handy resources for items that do not require too much preplanning or fuss and muss. Each activity is described in a spread and begins with a materials/equipment list. The steps are clearly numbered, and the directions are easy to understand. Warnings about potential hazards are provided. Cup gives instructions for a pyramid, ghost, telephone, robot, windmill, and more. Plate shows how to make Halloween pumpkin masks, string art, necklaces, a snake, a sun catcher, etc. The bright, color illustrations of the completed objects and steps are realistic and precise. Young crafters and adults who work with them will appreciate these titles.-Lynda Ritterman, Atco Elementary School, Waterford, NJ (c) Copyright 2010.
