Editorial Reviews

Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
This should be a useful volume in any library with scouts or day campers in the neighborhood.
Children's Literature
This collection of birdhouse designs is whimsical and fun and will inspire those with even the slightest inclination to build a birdhouse. Robins prefer open-air houses, so the birdhouse designed for a robin looks like a little deck made with twigs. The frame is constructed of pine boards to which the thin branches or twigs are nailed. A little roof is made with more branches and little wooden hearts nailed onto the back wall express the sentiments of the builder. A flat circle of wood has added wooden petals to make a sunflower birdhouse for wrens. The wooden flower face is attached to a clay flowerpot that is put on its side and attached to a pole. The nuthatch house is beautifully decorated with 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick branches. There are a variety of patterns illustrated. Apparently a crooked little house is perfect for bluebirds and perforated corrugated plastic drainpipe makes an ideal castle for purple martins. This collection of birdhouses comes with easy to follow illustrated instructions. General woodworking tools are described as well as instructions for nailing, screwing and other basic woodworking processes. Tips for mounting and caring for the birdhouses preface the real fun, which are the houses themselves. 2005, Kids Can Press, Ages 6 to 10.

Gr 5-8-Vibrant, artistically designed covers draw children into creative and challenging projects. Hemp includes discussions of the fiber, beads, charms, pendants, clasps, supplies, loops, hanging, taping, pinning, knotting, and more. The 16 projects include bracelets, necklaces, anklets, chokers, earrings, and rings. Birdhouses discusses wood, decorating, general supplies and tools, safety, work surface, clamping, sawing, drilling, and more. The nine eye-catching houses demand skill, patience, and assistance. Many tools and supplies-such as the power drill, epoxy, saw, etc.-require adult handling. Step-by-step, precise color illustrations and attractive photography will aid children in completing projects of varying degrees of difficulty. Most supplies are easily obtainable, but a few may be new to children. Ideas are given for further creativity. Along with Camilla Gryski's Friendship Bracelets (1992), Judy Ann Sadler's Beading (1998, both Kids Can), Ted S. Pettit's Bird Feeders and Shelters You Can Make (Penguin, 1970; o.p.), and Robyn Haus's Make Your Own Birdhouses and Feeders (Ideals, 2001), these titles will be welcome additions to most collections.-Augusta R. Malvagno, Queens Borough Public Library, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
