Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristin Harris
Ross has created over fifty craft books and still keeps coming up with more creative new ideas. Families spend so much time in the kitchen—what better place to find the materials for making useful objects? For starters, learn how to make an apron/cover-up out of an old shirt. Cut off the sleeves, turn it around so the buttons are in the back and glue a pocket in the front, glue on some rickrack and voila. Numerous activities are rather predictable, such as decorating napkins and making a recipe box and recipe cards. However Ross does not disappoint with her unusual, quirky new ideas; such as trivets made of flip-flops, decorating rubber gloves or making party corks. A favorite for originality is a slow-cooker hat that is made from old socks. This protects little hands from getting burned while checking the soup. Early readers should be able to navigate the simple text that is well illustrated. Instructions are clearly numbered and never exceed 8 steps. Reviewer: Kristin Harris

    A wonderful book for the young chef

    When children are old enough to begin helping out around the kitchen and participating in some basic baking and cooking, it's also time for them to put a few of their own personal touches around the kitchen. The first craft in this book is a simple, basic pattern for a kitchen cover-up that can be used not only for keeping clothes clean while working around the kitchen, but also when working on other messy craft projects. There are crafts that will suit a wide variety of tastes and purposes. Each craft is prefaced by a list of things needed for the selected creation. All directions are laid out step-by-step and are accompanied by great illustrated visuals to make things just that much easier. Most of the materials used are readily available or "green" items you may otherwise be placing in your recycle bin. Examples of typical supplies include white craft glue, markers, newspaper, paints, paintbrushes, scissors, plastic utensils, tin cans, wooden craft sticks, beads, aluminum foil, decorative trim, pencils, a hole punch, and other things such as rulers. There are some supplies that you may need to purchase, but most of them you probably already have. This is a wonderful book of kitchen "recipes" that will delight any youngster who loves to hang out in a kitchen. Each and every one of these crafts will prove to be a winner in the eyes of children who are anxious to join a parent or caretaker in the kitchen. They can also be made to give away as gifts. One of the most ingenious ones is the leaf spoon rest made out of a plastic water or soda bottle. It is not only a fun craft to make, but also a very functional one. I've read a couple more books in the "Girl Crafts" series and they have proven to be very popular with young crafters. Quill says: If you have an up and coming chef in your house, this is one book you just might want to add to your list!
