Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Fun projects to make and eat are featured in this book. One-of-a-kind gifts ideas are provided which would be great for bake sales, teacher gifts, community projects—the ideas are endless. Photographs show the finished projects. Part of the "Kids Can Do It" series. 2001, Kids Can Press, $12.95. Ages 10 to 12. Reviewer: M. Thomas SOURCE: Parent Council, September 2001 (Vol. 9, No. 1)
Children's Literature
Homemade gifts, given or received, are genuinely treasured, even today. And if you have a child who loves to bake, create or decorate, this book is perfect. Its bright, appealing cover hints at some yummy and festive gifts inside. Treats to make and give away include cookies, snacks, spices, baked goods, soup kits, drink mixes and quick-to-make gifts. Ingredient lists, in cups and milliliters, are rarely extensive and contain items that are easy to find. Pages are separated into sections with easy-to-follow lists and directions. Even better, each edible project includes a bright and festive "Wrap it Up" section, with crafty ideas for handmade gift containers. June Bradford's photos and realistic illustrations show the prospective creator/giver just what he/she will be making. This is a book that can be used during family holiday baking binges, in a classroom cooking session or for grandparents who want to make grandchildren's visits special. 2001, Kids Can Press, $12.95 and $5.95. Ages 8 to 15. Reviewer:Judy Crowder
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-These series entries are attractively designed and have eye-catching photos and lots of kid appeal. Each book contains a wonderful assortment of gift ideas and projects. MacLeod's introduction covers measuring (metric and imperial), baking tips, and other dos and don'ts concerning food preparation. Appropriate safety/allergy warnings are given. The edible presents, prepared in three or four steps, include chocolate, party food, cookies, soup, seasonings, muffins, candy, and beverages. Ideas for wrapping, tagging, and mailing gifts are also given. Children will especially enjoy Truffle Mice, Great Granola, Gingerbread People, Chocolate Pretzels, and Reindeer Canes. Storms opens with a discussion of fabric, thread, supplies, stitches, and more. The instructions give the basics of this craft and specific projects, such as appliqu ing clothing, a pincushion, or a wall quilt; making a pencil case, book bag, organizer, pin, pillow, a pieced mini-quilt, and the most challenging project-a Hopscotch Lap Quilt. In both books, the colorful photos and illustrations capture details and design and are an excellent accompaniment to the clear, step-by-step instructions. Useful and popular additions to library collections.-Augusta R. Malvagno, Queens Borough Public Library, NY Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
