Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristin Harris
Everyone is curious about the future. Most kids will really enjoy this collection of fortune telling activities. How do you find your lucky number? Several methods are suggested, as well as descriptions of what your lucky number says about you. Dream images may also reveal what is in store. Even certain bird sightings can indicate the possibilities of future events. A sleepover activity promises to predict who will marry first. A recipe for fortune cookies is included, with instructions for creating your own fortunes. The operative word here is fun, with lighthearted illustrations and a variety of activities to entertain children as they ponder what lies ahead.
