Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Did you know Korea is a mountainous peninsula about the size of Utah? This country’s project is a jeweled crown. The Gryphon House book . . . let my daughter and me learn about crafts from parts of the world where we have relatives and friends. We can make a fiesta dancing hat like those worn to celebrate the planting season of Ecuador (where my friend Lora served in the Peace Corps.) and paint our faces like the Kathakali performers in India (where my brother-in-law is from). It’s global fun.—Port Arthur News, Texas

". . . a wonderful compendium of plans for everything from an Ecuadorian dancing hat to Greek bread dough coins. Authors MaryAnn F. Kohl and Jean Potter give one-page instructions for more than 135 projects that are thought provoking and amusing. The illustrations offer a map showing the geographic location of each project’s source, as well as what the finished item can look like. The authors toss in a valuable historical or anecdotal tidbit just to make Mom or Dad or the Babysitter look that much smarter. Betcha didn’t know that evidence of ice skating was found among Roman ruins in London or that an Austrian wedding calls for a specially painted chair. Now you do, and here’s a project to prove it!’—West Coast Weekend

"Everyday art for children is presented in a project title which gathers a range of multicultural art pursuits, from Peruvian Silver Wind Chimes to creating Chinese Printing Presses. Illustrations are in black and white but this project-packed guide needs little color to prove valuable to young audiences."—Wisconsin Bookwatch
