Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara Wheatley
Did you know that the AIDS Memorial Quilt is the "largest community art project in the world"? That is just one of the interesting pieces of trivia in this new addition to the "For Fun!" series. Rau provides a brief history of quilts with a quilt history timeline, a description of the different types of quilts, and a list of materials and tools needed to make quilts. Example diagrams of three different types of stitches used in quilting are provided, along with diagrams of three common quilt patterns. Five quilt projects are presented; the Quilt Top, Triangle Sachet, Free-form Quilted Wall hanging, Quilted Purse, and Happy Cat Face. Suggestions for finding inspiration for quilting designs and tips for making quilt templates are also included. A useful addition would be the inclusion of templates that could be copied or traced. Each book in the series includes a table of contents, a list of additional resources, and a glossary. There is no demarcation of which words in the text appear in the glossary (e.g., bolded type, italicized type). Clear, bright photographs accompany every section, and each project is accompanied by a photograph of the finished project, but diagrams or photos for each step would make this book more useable. Due to the absence of step-by-step visual support, this book's value is in the facts and trivia, rather than the specific project instructions. Reviewer: Barbara Wheatley
School Library Journal

Gr 3-5

Varied typefaces and colors, large print, good spacing, and lively and creative arrangement make these books attractive, and color photos and other illustrations throughout are easy to follow. Each has three sections: "The Basics"; "Doing It"; and "People, Places, and Fun." All of the intricacies of these crafts are explored in texts that are geared toward beginners. Children will learn about the craft's history; the various types of yarns, needles, and hooks; museum displays; and different designs. Crocheting describes, step-by-step, how a slip knot is made and how to hold hook and yarn, make a foundation chain, create a single crochet stitch, add color stripes, and figure gauge. Also mentioned is creating crafts for a cause, and how the pastime is enjoyed around the world. Quilting describes simple stitches, marking and cutting fabric, and putting the project together. Boxed text interspersed throughout the books provides additional trivia and helpful tips. Crocheting outlines four projects (dishcloth, striped scarf, purse, and afghan square) and Quilting five (quilt top and putting it together, triangle sachet, free-form wall hanging, purse, and a happy cat face). Materials are easily obtainable from craft stores, and some are readily available at home. Adult assistance is mentioned for some projects, specifically when using an iron or sewing machine. These books will meet the needs of young craft enthusiasts.-Augusta R. Malvagno, Queens Borough Public Library, NY
