You and your children/students will equally fall in love with this book! I have two daughters, ages 7 and 9, that have already created some of the projects in the book with little help needed from me. The pictures are colorful and captivating, drawing the child in and making her/him truly want to create. My favorite part is that my girls really are able to collect most of the supplies they need, right from our backyard and kitchen recycling bin. All of those stones, sticks, glass jars and old clothing catalogs finally are being put to good use!
One of my girls struggles with creative writing and we have already used some of the art she has made with the book's guidance, as a tool to help her sequence her story, as well as add more description. She is also a tactile learner, so being able to feel, hold, arrange and stare at a representation of the objects she is trying to describe in her writing, has been an enormous help. For the first time, she is actually enjoying writing in her at-home journal! Whether you are a parent, teacher, in-home tutor or anyone working with children, this book will be an invaluable resource to you.
