PreS-Gr 2-Both of these books will appeal to children who are looking for ideas for something to do, baby-sitters, youth-group leaders, and others. Paper Plate Crafts gives suggestions for creating sea animals, insects, frogs, turkeys, lions, tigers, and other animals. Instructions are also given for making masks, hats, and seasonal crafts. The instructions are very simple. A list of supplies, a fun fact or two, and suggestions for related activities and for further reading are included. The second title is a Girl Scout Leader's dream of heaven when the international-friendship projects surface. Coded by degree of difficulty, the activities include creating a passport, making and packing suitcases from cardboard, and consulting a map of the world. Collecting foreign stamps is also suggested. North American totem poles, Hawaiian leis, Aboriginal bark painting, Japanese dolls in kimonos, Korean drums, egg-carton camels, Masai beaded necklaces, nesting Russian dolls, and South American gaucho belts are among the projects. While the ideas will not be new to veteran crafters, they are basic and solid for the intended audience.-Jennifer J. Gallant, Cleveland Public Library, OH Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
