Friendship bracelets (or ``wish bracelets'') are miniature pieces of macrame, usually made from multicolored embroidery floss- -in a skill that children often pass along in true folk-craft fashion. Gryski's codification of basic techniques and patterns, together with numerous variations, will be a treasure to the many who are never without a half-finished bracelet pinned to their jeans. A ten-year-old enthusiast who tested several of these patterns judged the directions and colored diagrams clear and easy to follow. (Gryski's three books of string figures are standards; Cat's Cradle, Owl's Eyes was a 1984 ALA Notable.) This book--plus a few skeins of floss, safety pins, and scissors--would make a great gift for a summer camper or a perfect kit for a long trip or a rainy day. Reference list of basic techniques and hints for fixing mistakes. (Nonfiction. 7+) -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.From Booklist:
Gr. 3-6. Friendship bracelets are still popular among preteens, and this is one of the few books around that give instructions for making them. Gryski offers basic instructions for thread bracelets and then branches off into various designs and other articles of adornment, such as earrings, that can be made with the same technique. Color diagrams seem clear and easy to follow, and the color photographs will get kids excited about the projects. Ilene Cooper
