Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Looking for something to do with all of those photographs, newspaper articles, and other memorabilia taking up space in your room? A scrapbooking project may be the perfect solution. Geared equally toward boys as girls, this book presents the history of scrapbooking, sets forth the basic materials necessary, and then shows examples of six different projects in a colorful, easy to follow manner. Projects include a natural scrapbook, a decorated tin, and a secret journal. A helpful glossary is contained in the back of the book, along with suggestions for further research and a timeline illustrating important milestones. With more than 25 children’s books to her name, the author loves to write in numerous genres, including poetry. She lives with her family in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This is part of the “FOR FUN!” series that includes titles such as Jewelry Making for Fun, Baseball for Fun, and Knitting for Fun. It is recommended for the intended age group. Reviewer: Cindy L.

School Library Journal

Gr 4-8
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.
