My Costume Book Hardcover – September 1, 1995
From School Library Journal
Grade 3-6?Twenty-seven different costumes are presented in this oversized book. Most rely on underlinings of body stockings, T-shirts, leotards, tights, bathing suits, or some form of sleepwear. The costumes themselves are basic shapes made from boxes, garbage bags, and heavy paper, or are simply constructed fabric shells. They are further enhanced with glued or sewn-on bits and pieces of decorative items (paper, foil, glitter, sequins, etc.). The directions are illustrated with bright, clear, full-color photographs. As well as basic designs, Owen suggests ways to vary the costumes, e.g., the "pencil person" can become a flower or firecracker with only a few modifications. The usual suggestions for parents to read the directions with youngsters before beginning and for children to always seek help with scissors and sewing machines are provided. Adults with some sewing skill could easily make any of these costumes in under an hour, but allowing youngsters to help will result in quite a sharing experience. Priscilla Hershberger's Make Costumes! (North Lights, 1992) takes a similar approach.?Carole B. Kirkpatrick, Terminal Park Elementary School, Auburn, WA
