School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 3-Crafts ideas varying in difficulty from very simple to more difficult are divided under headings such as "Fun with Photos," "A Garden of Gifts," and "Office Originals." The introduction urges adults to provide the materials and methods, but to let the children "own" these projects. However, minimal adult help may be necessary for most of them. Lists of materials, step-by-step instructions, and occasional "seasonal suggestions" are provided for each activity. Simple line drawings show the steps involved and the finished project. Appended lists note items to be "collected, saved, and used" and "Common and Uncommon Holidays." This utilitarian text is not as attractive as, but does contain more projects than, Kathy Ross's Gifts to Make for Your Favorite Grownup (Millbrook, 1996).-Kathryn Kosiorek, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Brooklyn, OH (c) Copyright 2010.
