School Library Journal Review

Gr 4 Up-With its attractive layout and crisply formatted text, this oversize volume is sure to entice children and those who work with them. Each spread presents one project, including its name (often indicating a holiday theme), potential audience, approximate time to complete it, and materials needed. Step-by-step instructions are numbered to correspond with close-up photographs. Tips, variations on the craft, and pictures of the final item are included. There's even a bit of information on child development tossed in, hence the range of ages recommended for each activity. Reproducible templates and an index complete this useful though not essential book. Though most kids won't have their work turn out quite as sleekly as the full-color photos (and there is little multicultural representation in the photos), this appealing book should find its audience.-Maria B.
