Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

This book presents 12 different craft projects designed to appeal to teens. Each project begins with an overview indicating the relative difficulty of the project, the time to allow, the amount of supervision necessary, the appropriate group size, and the “Mess Factor.” Also included are lists of the required tools, materials, and room setups. Each project concludes with “Spin-Offs” (other projects that use the same techniques) and “Adaptations,” which offer ways to adapt the activities for different groups (seniors, younger children, patrons with disabilities, etc.). The directions are straightforward, and black-and-white illustrations are featured throughout. In addition, users can find printable, single-page instruction sheets at the companion Web page. The book concludes with an appendix of supplies, tools, and project materials along with a glossary and a listing of other resources, both print and Internet. This would be a useful resource for anyone interested in increasing or expanding their teen programming. --Maren Ostergard

Format: Paperback
I ordered this for my library and was hoping it would give me some additional ideas for our teen craft program...it didn't. As a matter of fact, all it did was frustrate me that I had wasted some of my limited funds on this book. The crafts are dated and completely unmarketable to teens, actually they wouldn't excite anyone. The book is full of over complicated instructions and horrible black and white photography. Had I not known better I would have assumed this was a craft book from the 1970s. Really don't waste your time or money!

Format: Paperback
I purchased this book in the hopes of getting ideas for fun activities I could do with teens and pre-teens at my library. Unfortunately, there is not one craft which I want to attempt to even try to make here. The craft ideas have complicated instructions and are not appealing to me or to the teens I've shown the book to. One craft is 'melted crayon bookmarks." This involves making crayon shavings and melting them between pieces of paper, which isn't exactly practical in a library setting. There are four other crafts described as "messy" in the book. The book is overpriced and underwhelming. Not recommended at all.

...for blog posts or online articles, or buy any of the other cheaper, better craft books here on Amazon. I checked this out as an e-Book from my library, and honestly, I feel ALA publications are such a racket--dated and/or lackluster information that you can just glean elsewhere--all in the name of "professionalism." PLEASE don't waste your library funds on this.

Format: Paperback
This book is a great addition for any library that would like to sponsor crafts for tweens and teens. With projects from "Pressed Flower Note Cards" to "Vinyl Totes," there is plenty in this book to keep everyone interested. It has simple-to-follow instructions and clear photos that demonstrate each step. Included in each project chapter is a material list, room requirements, the project difficulty level, how long each one will take, the optimal group size, and how much of a mess it make. Included in each chapter is a section for notes and a link to a digital download that includes a printable, single page instruction sheet for class. In the appendix includes a master supply list to make sure you're not missing anything.

I love this book. My personal favorite is the "Book Pillow." You can choose any cloth you'd like, they're easy to make, and they make great gifts, especially if you include a book with it! Get this book if you want an easy way to introduce crafts to your library.
