Grade 4-6?Two inviting British imports that instruct readers in the art of counted cross stitch embroidery. Both volumes contain identical directions for materials needed and how to stitch. Each project (11 in Dinosaurs and 10 in Farmyard) includes a clearly drawn chart, a full-color photograph of the finished product, and carefully written instructions. Farmyard contains everything from a single pig or tractor to whole farm scenes; Dinosaurs has magical and mysterious beasts such as the Loch Ness Monster and ideas for designing a dragon. A note to parents and teachers about how to help, advice on adapting or inventing patterns, and framing methods are included. Attractive, user-friendly craft books.?Carolyn Jenks, First Parish Unitarian Church, Portland, ME
