Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-Craft Sticks uses Popsicle or craft sticks, tongue depressors, paper, paint, fabric, and household odds and ends to make toys and games, decorative items, doll furniture, frames, wreaths, and more. Newspapers uses papier-m ch techniques, decoupage, and cutting skills to make banks, clothed dolls, boxes, signs and cards, mobiles, etc. A switch-plate cover and a marble maze game are two of the more unusual ideas. Bottles, which requires potentially dangerous cutting procedures, only gives a safety warning in the introduction: "If you are having trouble cutting a container, ask for adult help." No warnings appear with individual projects, which combine plastic-container recyclables with paper, ribbon, fabric, buttons, and beads to make such items as bracelets, bookends, a desk aquarium, puppets, a playing-card holder, and decorative containers galore. Although there are no tables of contents, each book has a title and subject index. For the most part, project directions are given in paragraph form, not in numbered steps, and they might be a little difficult for primary students to follow without adult help. The large, full-color photos of the finished products are a helpful aspect of these books, sometimes making the written directions secondary. Worthy purchases for libraries that need more crafts books.-Lynda Ritterman, Atco Elementary School, Waterford, NJ Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
