Details: Product description Teachers, parents, and kids will adore this funny, step-by-step guide to creating more than 40 adorable animals. With three basic shapes (ball, worm, and teardrop), children will learn how to create personality-filled critters. Cute photos, numbered steps, helpful illustrations, crystal-clear directions, and some funny text help kids create everything from pandas, owls, rhinos, kittens, puppies, snakes, koala bears, raccoons, snails, turtles, fish, and more. A summary of projects and a helpful guide to techniques at the beginning of the book will help you create dozens of different, fun, and original clay figures. Perfect for a rainy day or art class project, and to foster and encourage creativity. From School Library Journal Gr 1–4—Children will delight in constructing this menagerie of clay animals. The book opens with a short section of techniques that describe in detail how to create the three shapes (teardrop, ball, and worm) and textures needed to accomplish these projects. Each skill is simply explained with one or two sentences and some sketched artwork. Projects are presented with illustrations depicting basic directions and photographs of completed projects. The cuteness factor here is high, with rounded hedgehogs, kittens, turtles, and more. The projects do not appear to increase in difficulty or to be sorted in a particular way, but they all are accessible to the intended audience. VERDICT Collections serving young crafters or in need of additional titles on simple clay projects will find this selection useful.—Ellen Norton, Naperville Public Library, IL Review "Children will delight in constructing this menagerie of clay animals.
