School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-5-This workmanlike series entry provides instructions for 10 projects. Colorful photographs illustrate some of the numbered steps as well as the final result. The crafts range from a "Dreidel Mobile" to "Embossed Place Cards." Most of the materials can be found around the house (pencil, glue stick); others may require a trip to the supply store (pony beads, glitter glue). A brief history of the holiday is included.-S. P.
