Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-5. An attractive but flawed effort. Kalman presents some period crafts but fails to define who the pioneers were, when they lived, or where. Her brief introduction simply makes the point that people at the time had to recycle many materials and use what was available to them. Thus, most ingredients or components for these activities are easily found in today's homes or yards. The projects range from braided rugs to stitched crafts, from cornhusk dolls to paper giftwrap, from pumpkin marmalade to a Jacob's ladder, each covered on a two-page spread with lots of colorful photos. Directions are brief to the point of confusion and will need clarification for younger children; terms such as "knead" are not defined and directions such as "roll out the dough" make no mention of using a rolling pin. Because proportions for mixing ingredients (such as paint and water), and measurements for seams or size of an item are not given, adult help will be needed for most projects. A good idea, poorly executed.?Rosie Peasley, Empire Union School District, Modesto, CA

One of my favorite books in the Historic Communities series is Pioneer Projects. It provides clear and simple directions for kitchen, fabric and nature crafts -- BCA Books Informed Resource

The latest book club pick from Oprah
"The Underground Railroad" by Colson Whitehead is a magnificent novel chronicling a young slave's adventures as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South. See more
