Gr. 4-6, younger with help. Ross, author of numerous craft books herself, serves as general editor for this collection of previously published books in the Look What You Can Make With series, which is based on the premise that fun crafts can be created from things found right at home. Popsicle sticks, egg cartons, plastic bottles, and newspapers are among the raw materials used for the more than 600 projects in the eight books here, each book complete with its full selection of "over 80" (in some cases 90) pictured crafts; Schneider's color-photo art (occasionally a bit blurry); the original paper cover, which now sports a labeled tab to make access to each book easy; and an index (there is no general index). Step-by-step instructions are clear, but only a picture of the finished project accompanies them; older children will easily figure out how to manage most of the crafts, but younger grade-schoolers will need both help and supervision. Fun for home or classroom, rain or shine. REVWRCopyright © American Library Association. All rights reserved
