Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
First, young artists are encouraged to hunt around the house to collect a variety of types of papers. Next, they can gather some basic tools such as a ruler, craft knife, hole punch, scoring tools and string. Then basic instructions are given to curl, fold, tear, crumple and punch paper. Now the fun and creativity begin! Children are stimulated to try a collage of various papers or make their own decorative papers. Using paste, paint, wax and various printing ideas, many suggestions are given. From these hand-made paper projects can be created wrapping paper, shopping bags and more. Three-dimensional ideas include jewelry, flowers in pots and papier-mâché bowls. Excellent colorful photographs accompany easy-to-follow instructions. Some adult supervisions may be necessary. Other titles in the "Crafty Ideas" series are Print, Paint, and Models. 2001, Two-Can, $9.95 and $5.95. Ages 8 to 12. Reviewer: Laura Hummel
School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-These slim books include beautiful color photos but limited instructions. Models presents recipes for both modeling dough and salt dough. Illustrations of equipment and finished products are artistically photographed, but there are no step-by-step directions for the crafts and readers won't be able to finish the ceramic clay projects without access to a kiln. However, the author does offer a few hints for successful modeling with other mediums such as cake, marzipan, self-hardening clay, and papier-m ch . Of the two, Paper provides the broadest introduction and appeal for novices, and includes paper jewelry, decorative shopping bags, flowers, cards, wrapping paper, bows, tags, and even an "aquarium" of fish. Instructions are more specific than those in Models. Most of the ideas in these volumes can be found in numerous other craft titles.-Mary Elam, Forman Elementary School, Plano, TX Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
