Editorial Reviews

Daily Miner News
Amanda Lewis’s Making Memory Books book is wonderful way to get kids to start saving their own memories to be treasured and cherished down their future road of life. When children add their recollections, special show ticket stubs, invitations to fetes, and other sentimental memories to their own memory book they will realize they are capturing the stories filling up their lives. This book is probably for the older child.
Canadian Book Review Annual
Making Memory Booksdescribes the process of organizing collectibles and keepsakes ? in an attractive scrapbook format. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. They are illustrated step-by-step with large, color diagrams. The imaginative use of found materials will stimulate the child’s creativity. The end products are attractive and useful.
The Toronto Star
Making Memory Bookss suggests an involved and satisfying project. Lewis gives directions for making four kinds of books, and supplies lots of design ideas and tips for borders, decorations and layout. This isn’t just a craft book, but an invitation to think about how a page looks, how colors work together and how a book is organized.
Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Memory books can be designed to hold special collections such as photographs, ticket stubs, buttons, invitations, postcards, and other keepsakes. By adding writing, one can make the book unique and personal. Each book will reflect the individual who made it. One could create a book for a grandparent, friend, teammate, or to remember a special occasion. The book explains how to use color and design pages for balance. Pages can then be decorated using stencils, stamps, borders, and letters. Clear step-by-step instructions are given for each technique. Details about using decorative papers and types of glue are given. The books themselves can be sewn, tied, or glued and can be created in special shapes. One book was a heart shape and another was an accordion book. Photographs of finished products and detailed drawings are included, making the instructions easy to follow. It would be a useful tool for a classroom, club, or special interest group. Note that some activities may require adult help. 1999, Kids Can Press, Ages 8 up, $5.95.
