PreSchool-Grade 2. They're back...Winky, Skipper, and Tag, those cuddly cartoon animals, have returned with 12 new projects, one for each month of the year. Whether they're making something musical, something sweet, or something to play in, the three friends will inspire young children to join in. Boys and girls will learn how to prepare easy snacks, sprout beans, make an ant colony, blow soap bubbles, create light-catchers, build an indoor play house, and more. The clear instructions and appealing illustrations are just right for the intended audience. Each activity is easy enough for children to complete using common household items and with minimal adult help. A concluding page offers advice to adults on safety and ideas for ingredient substitution. The focus of this book and its quality presentation make it a good choice for public libraries.?Paula A.

Ages 3^-8. The gentle members of the Make-Something Club return with a dozen new activities that are appealing, easy to do, and occasionally delicious. The 12 projects are arranged by the months of the year and sometimes reflect the seasons. Young children, their parents, and their teachers will have fun growing plants from sweet potatoes, building an ant hill, blowing soap bubbles, and eating roll-up snacks. Sandwiched in between the illustrated step-by-step directions and the lists of readily available supplies are sweetly appealing, balloon-captioned watercolors that showcase squirrels Skipper and Tag as well as raccoon Winky. This attractive book will be a plus to any library serving the nursery-school set. Julie Corsaro
