About this title


Eighty-plus projects include French frills, English peasant beads, Japanese dolls, and Indonesian shadow puppets. Plus: a St. Bridget’s cross, an Oriental Caterpillar, Venetian carnival mask, Nigerian tie & die, and papier-mâché from several nations. “Armchair travelers, gather ‘round— here is your opportunity to take a world-wide tour and create your own souvenirs without ever leaving home....A variety of enjoyable and colorful creations.”—Shuttle Spindle & Dyepot.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6?These multicultural projects are divided into sections based on types of cutting and folding skills required?geometric cuts, accordion folds, constructions, etc. In the table of contents, the country of origin is printed in italics next to each craft title. The book opens with a brief history of paper. Step-by-step directions, most as minimal as one sentence per step, refer to brightly colored diagrams, making this title accessible to visual learners. Adult help is needed only occasionally, as the directions are definitely written with children in mind. Step one is always "Collect your supplies," followed by a list. Each project includes a brief introduction that gives history, ethnic notes, and an explanation of the finished product's use. A complete index includes activity names; countries; and types of folds, cuts, etc. Fun-filled hours await children who are introduced to this book, and teachers can use it to supplement and enrich multicultural and interdisciplinary units.?Marilyn Fairbanks, East Junior High, Brockton, MA
