Editorial Reviews

VOYA
This colorful resource is more than just a craft book. Each chapter begins with an overview of the recycled materials that make up the main ingredient of the craft being presented. "Metal Madness," for example, begins with a discussion of mining and the gold rush and outlines the damage that mines have left on the earth. The language used is youth-friendly and stays away from preachy tones. There are more than forty crafts from which to choose under the other headings of "Plastic Fantastic," "Paper Works," and "Glass Goodies." Each project includes step-by-step instructions as well as color photographs to help in assembly. The crafts range from simple ones, such as using glass jars to make terrariums, to more sophisticated ones, such as handmade paper and lamps made from olive oil tins. The variety of projects alone makes this book a worthy purchase for libraries with craft sections. There are crafts to keep, gifts to make, and games to build. The additional environmental information can act as a supplement to research. It might also help to plant a seed about the need to think carefully about what gets thrown out and what can be recycled.

School Library Journal
Gr 5-9-Youngsters are challenged to look for recyclable items and create a wide range of useful, playful, and decorative items. Projects range from simple, decorative butterflies to a disco ball, musical instruments, jewelry, and whimsical pocket people. Along the way, the authors provide information on how to become "earth friendly," and how to salvage and reuse all kinds of materials from plastic grocery bags and paper to used computer parts. Many of the crafts call for tools, glue guns, spray paint, nails, and broken pottery and glass; several are labeled "Adult Assistance Necessary." Each project is illustrated with attractive color photos of young people involved in making and using the crafts. This appealing volume is not only a craft book; it also educates users to be more aware of packaging, waste, and of making conscious decisions about how products are used and discarded. Years of Earth Day ideas flow from between the covers of this creative book.-Kathryn Kosiorek, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Brooklyn, OH Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
