Craft Fun!

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-6Ten previously published books from the "Art & Activities for Kids" series (North Light) are reissued as chapters in these two large volumes. Art Fun! includes Paint! Draw! Make Prints! Make Sculptures! and Paint Adventures!. A wide range of materials and techniques are employed in the attractive and inventive crafts. Easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions and full-color photos result in a clean, crisp presentation. Hard-to-find basic drawing techniques, including 3-D effects and shading, are particularly well done. Craft Fun! includes Make Crafts! Make Clothes Fun! Make Cards! Gifts! and Make Costumes! Again, the activities and design are of high quality. One regrettable exception is the stereotypical "Indian" costume found side-by-side with clowns, monsters, vampires, etc. Both books provide instructive information for parents/adults, but safety icons found in some crafts are often difficult to spot and at times inappropriate. These titles may be useful to libraries looking for supplements to their arts' area, but those who purchased the original titles will find nothing new.Paula A. Kiely, Milwaukee Public Library, WI
