Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3 Up-- A presentation of craft projects that are supposed to be good for the Earth. However, the use of new plastic bags, aluminum foil, styrofoam, and food products make this claim questionable. Using blocks of cheese for sculpture, even if one eats the results, is wasteful. Using matchboxes (with matches in them) for artwork seems awfully tempting for most children, and the melting of styrofoam and plastic in the oven is dangerous no matter what cautions are given. The inclusion of a thorough index, bibliography, and list of governmental organizations do not add enough to elevate this above most craft manuals. The black-and-white illustrations do not always support the intended projects or make the directions more comprehensible. Although there are a few original ideas, this is a marginal choice for most collections. --Eva Elisabeth Von Ancken, Trinity Pawling School, NY

    Collect Indoors and Out - for Easy Art Activities

    Environmental Art for Kids, the sub-title. I like that. But what does it mean? This book takes kids outdoors to collect 'stuff' from nature, like leaves and pinecones, or indoors to collect 'stuff' like envelopes and newspaper. Once collected, there are about 150 projects for open-ended things to make with them. I especially liked making a 'leaf burst' with supple autumn leaves and paint.It's easy for even young kids, and it's beautiful. Easy too. I also like the page layout...one big idea per page, book stays open nicely, great icons to help with other decisions to be made like how difficult and so forth. And can you believe it gives recipes for making your own homemade paste, glue, yarn, and chalk? Even how to build a kiln outside and bake your own clay, dry your own flowers. This is a pretty nice book for parents or teachers, camps, or any one who likes kids. Great for ages 4-12.
