"It's too cold outside. There's nothing on TV. You've read all your books. Sigh. You're out of things to do! Lucky for you the book 'Kid Made Modern' by Todd Oldham is cock-full of 52 easy-to-do crafts." —Girl's Life Magazine
"Diving into the easy kids crafts in Todd Oldham's 'Kid Made Modern' is like having your own personal modern art teacher. Projects range from easy to difficult—from making over your sneakers with surprising shoe lace colors to sewing a log-shaped felt pillow. Unlike art projects, which immediately scream 'kid-made,' Oldham's popsicle stick-free crafts will delight both kids and their design-savvy parents." —Babble.com
"This activity book from renowned designer Oldham uses the work of Mid-Century modern visual artists—including Isamu Noguchi, Alexander Calder, and Charles and Ray Eames—as springboards for 52 hands-on creative projects. Brief tutorials introduce skills and techniques, paired with full-color photos of kids and the various processes. Some are simple, like Alexander Girard-inspired dolls made from wooden spoons and Luis Barragán-style cardboard houses, while others are more challenging (making a felt laptop case with a monster face requires machine stitching). But, regardless of ability, there's much here to capture the eye of ambitious, crafty readers." —Publisher's Weekly

I really liked how this book integrates crafts with educating children about modern art. And yet, the book is not made so that the child must read about the artists in order to be able to do the craft. So, this 8 year-old can just do the craft and not really care about the artist or she can read about the artist. There are sections on art media (i.e. paint, felt, tape) and that's really neat for the learning aspect as well.
Lastly, the two biggest things that the 8 year-old's mom loved about this book was that: 1) the crafts are done mostly with items you can find around the house, and that 2) there is such a variety in the crafts. Some are clothing, some are furniture, some are art pieces, some are toys.
I definitely recommend this book to children ages 6-12 who enjoy arts and crafts.
He lovesss this book. I, myself, am as designer also love this book. It teaches kids and adults to appreciate art even more and to do more creativity stuff using everyday stuff.

This book is great for some crafty, smart ideas that are based on real artists' work. I am an art teacher and I will use some ideas to create my own lessonsPublished on July 26, 2013 by Susan Ceglio Tresca
I included this project in my sculpture camp using galvanized wire that was easier to find and cut than coat hangers. It went quickly but happily.Published on August 16, 2012 by GG
