5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful series, age-appropriate, whimsical March 12 2013

I love the "123..." art series. I have them all and am using them for my first grader's art program this year. The pictures/photos are colorful and illustrate the directions clearly. The projects are fun, whimsical, and creative. Best of all, they don't require a king's ransom in supplies, they're fairly easy to complete, and the end product is awesome. I love the little tidbits of information tucked away on each page (technical art terms, definitions, etc). This really is a fantastic series -- I highly recommend them all!
5.0 out of 5 stars Well done! Nov. 27 2012

I didn't purchase this book from Amazon, but my 7 year old daughter just brought it home from her school library and now I am thinking she needs her own personal copy. She was so excited to show me all the fantastic buildings you could make out of basic craft materials, such as printed scrap book or construction paper, modeling clay, twigs and even sugar cubes. I must admit, that the illustrations of the finished projects were probably not created by your average 7 year old, but they have inspired my daughter to build and create! Also, parents will love the educational quality of the book with definitions for "architect", "structure", "foundation", etc. This book is so well done, I am looking at other books by Irene Luxbacher. If your child loves to create, I highly recommend this book!
