Gr. 2-4. Ross, who has more than 50 crafts books to her credit, targets elementary-school girls in this book in the Girl Crafts series. In her familiar, well-illustrated, step-by-step style, she demonstrates how to turn buttons, ruffles, paper dolls, bangles, beads, paper, fabric, and more into a variety of fun, useful, and frivolous creations--ranging from a picture frame made from old bangle bracelets to a tassel doll and a lace-trimmed shadow box. Instructions are very clear and precisely illustrated with color pictures, the first of which shows the finished project. A particularly nice feature is the illustrated list of materials, which heads the instructions; each required object, be it glue or junk jewelry, is both named and pictured. Most of the projects are designed for kids to make by themselves, although children will need to be skillful with scissors. Stephanie Zvirin

Grade 3-6–A collection of 22 unique crafts. Each activity opens with a Here is what you need section, followed by Here is what you do directions. Girls can make a pillow-doll pajama bag, fancy envelopes, flower fairies, doll furniture, a seashell baby, a bangle-bracelet picture frame, a change purse, and more. Steps are easy to follow and materials are store-bought, recyclables, and some general supplies (glue, scissors, etc.). As with Ross's other craft titles, this book is sure to please children and the adults who assist them. A welcome addition to be used along with existing titles such as Francesca Rusackas's 60 Super Simple Friendship Crafts (Lowell, 1999) and the Better Homes and Gardens Scrapbooking for Girls Only (Meredith, 2004).–Augusta R.
