Here's a great way for Mom or Dad to spend quality time with their pre-schooler. Fun ideas abound in this bright, cheerful, color-illustrated book filled with quick-and-easy art projects for making posters and paper models. Parents can read instructions aloud to kids as they work together. The book's introduction lists all needed equipment--glue, scissors, pencil, ruler, crayon or felt-tip pen, stickers, scraps of cloth, and various colors and types of paper. The book's 28 projects fall into three categories: farm animals; sea creatures; and cars, trains, and planes. Projects are focused to give younger children a real sense of achievement as they have fun creating paper or cloth cows, pigs, fish, whales, trains, trucks, airplanes, and even rocket ships!

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-K-Twenty-eight age-appropriate collages, designed to be completed by two- to five-year-olds with adult interaction, include a tugboat, an airplane, a cow mask, and an apple tree. An introduction has information on materials, safety, and skills development. The colorful, clear format is consistent throughout the book, with one spread devoted to each activity. All projects use simple geometric shapes that, for the most part, are glued onto a sheet of oaktag or paper. Each craft has a materials list, instructions about and pictures of the pieces that an adult must cut out, and a picture of the finished project. An inset provides additional instruction on how to upgrade the project for use with older children. Because most craft titles are written for older children, this book fills a desperate need in library collections and in nursery schools. It is also suitable for storytime programs that use a craft component, and, of course, for one-on-one sharing.-G.
