Gr 3-5- Ross suggests 20 projects that kids can make and give as gifts. Each one uses readily available craft materials or household items. Some of them are a bit hokey (a cup holder made out of a sock and a piece of feather boa) or impractical (using chenille sticks to hold handmade shower shoes on your feet, and to hold the several layers of craft foam together) but others allow children to make easy gifts for family members (a yarn dispenser made out of a plastic wipes dispenser, a frog pin from glass stones). The watercolor illustrations are clear and helpful and show children of a variety of ethnicities and both genders.-Nancy Kunz, Tuckahoe Public Library, NYCopyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
