From Booklist:

Reviewed with Florence Temko's Traditional Crafts from China.

Gr. 5-7, younger with adult help. Yarn dolls, kites, string puppets, and drums are just some of the projects included in these two books in the Culture Craft series. Each well-organized, nicely illustrated volume begins with a few words about crafts in general, materials, and a country's handicraft traditions. Then it's on to the how-to projects themselves, which are described step by step, with clear, simple diagrams and photographs to help children along. Suggestions for making other items using the same materials or with the same theme follow each project, and templates, a metric conversion chart, and a glossary round out the text. The projects vary greatly in difficulty; some safety tips are included. China includes instructions for picture scrolls and tanagrams; Caribbean includes yarn dolls, Puerto Rican vejigante masks, and metal cutouts. Heather Hepler

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3-5-Temko provides background information on the technique and the significance of the eight crafts explored in each of these titles. Her clear and consistent, step-by-step directions are easy to follow and the required materials are easily obtainable. Where applicable, caution notes are given and adult help is indicated. The illustrative material includes photos, drawings, labeled diagrams, and simple color maps. Unfortunately, the map of Japan shows the Atlantic rather than the Pacific Ocean. Despite this, these titles are useful supplements to the "World Crafts" series (Watts), the "Worldwide Crafts" series (Gareth Stevens), and "Country Topics for Craft Projects" series (Watts), as well as Alexandra Terzian's The Kids' Multicultural Art Book (Williamson, 1993). Besides discovering enjoyable craft activities in Temko's titles, readers will gain some knowledge of these cultures.-Augusta R. Malvagno, Queens Borough Public Library, NY
