School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-7-Each volume has 50 projects and a wealth of instructions to get the creative juices flowing, whether paper crafting with papier-m?ch?, decoupage, origami, and mosaics or making stamps from potatoes, soap, cardboard, and leaves. All of the activities encourage experimentation, imagination, and personal artistic expression. Each book begins with an art lesson on the materials used and how to perform the various techniques needed. There are instructions on how to make paper, or paints and inks, and how to use the store-bought stuff to make everything from bowls to candle holders to clothing and jewelry. The authors and illustrators provide concise, clear instructions and full-color photographs to show how each step progresses to the finished product. Both books present interesting projects that are easy to complete and will appeal to this audience. Kids are shown having a great time making things and taking pride in their accomplishments.-Cynde Suite, Bartow County Library System, Adairsville, GA (c) Copyright 2010.
