Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

As a primary school teacher, I can find design and technology projects a bit daunting. Almost nothing frustrates me more than having a class full of children making a mess with paper, scissors and glue. However, a book like this has the potential to transform that teacher’s nightmare into creative bliss, fuelling the children’s imaginations and turning those sheets of paper into imaginative and exciting creations. From a stand-alone project, something to keep children amused during free time, or a cross-curricular topic, this is a valuable resource for anyone who works with, or has, children.

The book is divided into two main sections, with progressively harder designs. The instructions are clear and easy to follow, accompanied by labelled diagrams, which will appeal especially to visual learners. At the start of the book is a list of thematic contents, making it quick and easy to refer to something specific - from Little Red Riding Hood, to Macbeth, it could be an interesting way of engaging children in literature, for example, by bringing the stories alive. What I find particularly interesting about this book, is the fact that there are no precise measurements for the designs, making room for individuality and a little creative licence. Ultimately, as the author himself states, "making things with the hands is at the core of learning", and this book facilitates that in a wonderful way. I am looking forward to creating some interesting things with my pupils!
