Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sheilah Egan
Citing her own fond memories of doing "things" with her mother, the author has collected a wide variety of activities for creating your own mother/child memories. MacGregor mentions in her introduction that while most of the activities would be perfectly suitable for doing with boys or girls, she has concentrated on the particular "mother/daughter" relationship. (A companion book, Come On, Dad by Ed Avis, is also available.) This compact guide provides inspiration for both indoor and outdoor experiences, a wide range of crafty projects using household items and usual art supplies, as well as a number of great ideas for birthday parties. In a time when parents and children are caught up in hectic schedules, this book reminds the reader that simple expenditures of time are the most valuable. Choose from art experiences, such as New Crayons from Old, Mock Stained Glass Pictures, Cow-a-Plastic, Fingerprint Drawings, and Photo Collage; outdoor activities like Beach in a Jar, Locomotion Commotion, Picnic Paradise, Treasure Hunt, Grow an Herb Garden, and Goofy Golf; and indoor projects, including Invisible Ink, Progressive Stories, Draw Your Family Tree, When I Was a Little Girl, Living Room Camp-out and What's the Good Word. These are just a few of the 75 ideas included in this loving look at sharing special times. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. There are black-and-white photographs of mothers and daughters creating many of the projects or enjoying the activities described in the text. Most of the activities could be modified to suit a variety of ages, but the bulk of them would work best with three to ten year olds. This is a very gentle reminder that the time we giveour children can be worthwhile and fun while building lifelong memories. Reviewer: Sheilah Egan
