From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-7-Two well-done volumes that examine their subjects from a historical as well as a practical perspective. Everyday Life covers such topics as working with clay and wood; making glass, rugs, and candles; sewing; weaving; knitting; quilting; basket weaving; and metalwork. The origin of each craft is briefly discussed. Museum-piece examples and archaeological finds from different cultures are shown to give readers a historical context. Each section then holds a suggestion for a simplified project for youngsters to try. Directions are clear and materials needed appear in an accompanying picture to make the project easy to complete. Play introduces toys, games, puzzles, dolls, and puppets found in many cultures, each followed, again, by instructions for readers to make a toy of their own. Photos and full-color diagrams abound, enhancing the clearly written texts. Bits of trivia make the books enjoyable for browsers, but there is not enough information on any one craft to write a report. Those looking strictly for "how-to" books or project ideas will be better off with something like the "Fresh Start" series (Watts), but art and social-studies teachers will appreciate and find an audience for these unique titles.
