Overview

Older children will be able to follow them independently, while younger children can fully participate in the simple constructions with some parental help. The materials for each project are listed, and can easily be found around the house. So get out the scissors and paste along with your favorite books, and make storytime an exciting hands-on experience.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
A must for children's storytellers, preschool and kindergarten teachers, and parents who want to add a special touch to nursery rhymes, songs, and other favorite children's tales. There are 174 pages of clever ideas that can be made with common household items. The Patty Cake baby using a clothespin is very clever, the Frog Prince magnet will wait on the refrigerator until that "magic" day he becomes the real prince. The bursting mitten to accompany Jan Brett's, The Mitten is a must try. This could be presented to your children's day care center or school, it is sure to excite the teacher's there. Older children can make the crafts themselves. It is a great way to breathe new life into our favorite childhood rhymes and tales. 2003, The Millbrook Press,
