Children's LiteratureWeaver and Wishinsky help tweens with the entire process of redecorating their space. They start with the basics, such as making a sample board, building a budget, cleaning, decluttering, and choosing colors. They then discuss color coordinating and furniture fundamentals, with shopping tips wedged between learning the skinny on lighting. From there, they move into the final steps of polishing up the space with insights on hanging art work and tips on using the appropriate mounting methods, to finding the right kind of window treatments and including those perfect finishing touches like rugs, vases, and pillows. Furthermore, they cover organization in a way that is relevant to kids, since their room must be multifunctional. From the closet to the desk, and utilizing the space beneath the bed, each inch is put to good use and the important things are easily accessible. Sprinkled throughout, readers will find historical sidebars and quotes from real kids. The book's overall feel is similar to that of a Pleasant Company DIY book, but the bold colors of the illustrations and unisex tips will appeal to both genders. 2006, Tundra Books, Ages 4 to 8.
