From the Publisher
[T]hese titles will be welcome additions to most collections.
School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-Vibrant, artistically designed covers draw children into creative and challenging projects. Hemp includes discussions of the fiber, beads, charms, pendants, clasps, supplies, loops, hanging, taping, pinning, knotting, and more. The 16 projects include bracelets, necklaces, anklets, chokers, earrings, and rings. Birdhouses discusses wood, decorating, general supplies and tools, safety, work surface, clamping, sawing, drilling, and more. The nine eye-catching houses demand skill, patience, and assistance. Many tools and supplies-such as the power drill, epoxy, saw, etc.-require adult handling. Step-by-step, precise color illustrations and attractive photography will aid children in completing projects of varying degrees of difficulty. Most supplies are easily obtainable, but a few may be new to children. Ideas are given for further creativity. Along with Camilla Gryski's Friendship Bracelets (1992), Judy Ann Sadler's Beading (1998, both Kids Can), Ted S. Pettit's Bird Feeders and Shelters You Can Make (Penguin, 1970; o.p.), and Robyn Haus's Make Your Own Birdhouses and Feeders (Ideals, 2001), these titles will be welcome additions to most collections.-Augusta R.
