These volumes try to cover a lot of ground in very few pages. Each one contains an introduction, history of the craft, details on tools, types of projects, the craft's role around the world, famous related artists, a time line, trivia, and two glossaries-a general one and one of words specific to the activity. In addition, each book has five or six projects. The instructions are generally clear; unfortunately the steps aren't illustrated. Overall, these are serviceable additions, but Pam Price's Cool Scrapbooks (ABDO, 2005), Rachel DiSalle and Ellen Warwick's Junk Drawer Jewelry (Kids Can, 2006), and Peg Blanchette and Terri Thibault's Make Your Own Cool Cards (Williamson, 2004) provide more projects and better explanation.
