Booklist Review

Reviewed with Fay Robinson's Christmas Crafts. Gr. 2-4. Pillowcase ghosts, sock bats, and a "Santa Sneezebox" tissue cover are among the accessible projects featured in these books from the new Fun Holiday Crafts Kids Can Do! series. On each double-page spread, color photos illustrate the steps in a confusing jumble that children may find hard to follow, but Robinson's clear text will sort out what to do. A majority of the projects are refreshingly down-to-earth. Most can be completed in just a few steps and most are created from common household items and a few craft-store staples such as pipe cleaners; Xerox-ready patterns to enlarge are at the back of the book. Several projects may require an older person's assistance and safety notes appear throughout. Each book begins with a few vague sentences about the holiday's roots, but children will likely roll up their sleeves and skip straight to the bright, hands-on crafts. Teachers, babysitters, and scout leaders will want this, too. Further readings are appended. --Gillian Engberg Copyright 2003 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-5-Ranging from a bat sock puppet to a pop-up card with a ghost, these 10 projects utilize easily found items such as shoe boxes, cardboard, and pipe cleaners. Each craft is simple to construct, and traceable patterns are included. The full-color photographs correspond with the step-by-step directions. Colorful graphics provide a bit of atmosphere. This book is great for adults who need a quick craft with very little expense. For a wider variety of projects, try Meredith Brokaw and Annie Gilbar's The Penny Whistle Halloween Book (Fireside, 1991) or Kathy Ross's All New Crafts for Halloween (Millbrook, 2003).-G.
