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.
