This title is suitable for ages 3 to 8 years. What a way to learn! Kids imagine it, then create it - learning to move from an idea to making it happen. Kids learn to improvise by creating something out of `nothing`. Kids develop valuable social skills - cooperation, problem-solving, and respect for new ideas. Kids learn to stretch their minds and `think on their feet`. Kids explore life in various kinds of self-made `structures`, including a spider web, pyramid, igloo, nest, and general store.

PreSchool-Grade 3–Beginning with an encouraging note from the author, this title explains the differences between constructive and dramatic play, as well as the benefits of play. Constructions include houses and living spaces, favorite buildings and structures, animal homes and habitats, all kinds of things that go, shops and stands, mini-theaters and places to perform. Challenge-level icons help adults to determine the complexity of the project. Building tips, safety, basic supplies, and accessories are discussed. With color illustrations on every page and easily obtainable supplies, children and the adults who assist them (especially for using a utility knife, a hot-glue gun, chicken wire, and wire cutters) will enjoy these creations. They include a flower-fairy house; a plastic milk-jug igloo; a newspaper-roll hut; a cardboard barn, castle, and pyramid; a cruising car; a fire engine; a dump truck; a helicopter; and more. A popular addition for most craft collections.–Augusta R. Malvagno, Queens Borough Public Library, NY
