Lots of creative ideas.
Tranetta L. Mccomb
Your only mistake is assuming the book is only for children: if you're buying a gift for a kid, do yourself a favor and get an extra one for yourself.

This is a fun activity to share with a child.

No one creates better ways to enter the world of art and creativity than Marian Deuchars. Here, she takes as a starting point the human race's oldest and most universal way of markmaking, the fingerprint, and shows how anyone can build an endlessly inventive universe around it. Your only mistake is assuming the book is only for children: if you're buying a gift for a kid, do yourself a favor and get an extra one for yourself. It is worth a dozen self-help books and twenty times as fun.

It doesn't matter what age you are, this book is entertaining, creative and full of ideas. I bought this book for my little brother and ended up buying another for myself because I couldn't part ways with it. I highly recommend this book - it's countless hours of fun.

I went in with an attitude: I'm an Art Type, I Could Write a Book for Kids, All Books for Kids Are Lousy Because They're Not Mine, etc., but... I absolutely love this book! It's an Arts Education disguised as Silly Time; brussels sprouts in jelly donut's clothing. No child (or adult) will get that it's loaded with vitamins, minerals and fiber! All real artists understand that art is a blob of paint that's been added to, subtracted from, pushed or pulled until it gets attention, and that one of the tragic moments of childhood is when a kid relinquishes the crayons to those who are "good" at it. LMSGFA (as scholars will be calling it) strongly discourages discouragement, encourages abandon, and is a BLAST. A couple of reviews above mention buying more than one copy at a time. It's true! You'll want one in which to splash around, and one to keep.

.... and what an amazing follow up to "Let's Make Some Great Art". You'll need one to keep and admire for its beauty, and others to have lots and lots of good times with your friends and family.

Nearly 6-yr-old granddaughter love her present. My only problem was not being able to find a highly rated ink pad to accompany it, but my daughter had some.

I bought this to share with my 6-year old granddaughter when she comes to visit. We have had a lot of fun with it! Just by using our fingerprints we have created some classic "art"! There isn't a right or wrong way to create Fingerprint Art. Your creativity is your limit. The book talks about the ridges and whorls on fingerprints. There are pictures showing you how to create square, triangle, etc fingerprints to add individuality to your art.
This is a fun activity to share with a child.

Make art in your book with your own finger and hand prints? Kids are so lucky these days! This is such a fun book with lots of designs to follow to create your own fingerprint art. Great for all children and kids at heart, we also were able to use our Doug & Melissa paints and stampers which worked perfectly in the book. This is a fun unique twist on art projects that offer a little *gasp* fun reading on the side. Perfect!
