Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-6-- Step-by-step directions and crisp, full-color photographs combine to present a lucid introduction to papier-mache crafting. Eight projects ranging from animal sculptures to vases and bangle bracelets are fashioned from strips of newspaper or plain newsprint. A ``Basics Box'' (how to get started, materials needed, paste recipe, application, etc.) is repeated for each activity; a final section gives suggestions for painting and decorating the objects. Although other books contain comparable material, the clarity of instruction, range of ideas, and appeal of the format distinguish this title. Children will use it independently, although adults will gain helpful tips as well. --Maria B. Salvadore, District of Columbia Pub. Lib.

Format: Hardcover
My son and I have been looking for a book just like this one, that shows not only how to make the papier mache but some of the tricks in how to construct the physical structures for building the pieces. We are happy to find this informative book. My wife is a teacher of little folks, and as soon as we master the techniques, I'm sure there will be projects at school. We will be working on the NBA puppets...you may have seen some on TV as of late...we will let you know how these puppets turn out...I'm an architect/designer/artist...and hope to use this medium in some serious projects as well as the fun ones. Thanks...Norm Catlett...ncatlett@hdrinc.com

As a former art teacher, I enjoy engaging my grandchildren in projects of this type at home. This book is outstanding in its appeal because of charming designs and clarity of instruction. There are projects for both boys and girls. Each of them sparks a child's interest enough to start creating - after that, I gently encourage orignality for finishing touches. All of us - even the girls! - love the snakes!

It helped me to inspire my kindergarten children for science class. Children would like
to advance to make more complex projects.
