Review:

"Lively photos and clear instructions encourage readers to transform scrap materials into new objects. The nearly 100 projects vary in skill: diagonally cutting a cereal box creates an easy magazine holder, while, by using old T-shirts, readers can create drawstring bags. More challenging activities include a plastic jug lampshade and paint can — lid clock. Sewing novices can learn the basics through a stitching tutorial to make objects like a blanket from old sweaters; projects requiring tools or other advanced skills advise adult assistance. The results are often quite attractive, and crafty kids will likely be motivated by Threadgould's clever and creative ideas. Ages 8 — up. (Apr.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
