Grade 3 Up Anyone who has ever worked with crafts and children will want to add this recipe book to their collection. Con coctions include a variety of pastes and glues, modeling compounds, different types of papier-mache paints, inks, and even flower preservation. All ingredients may be found easily in grocery, drug-or hardware stores; many already will be in the kitchen. ``Helpful hints'' identify where less common items may be found as well as other important considerations. Safety tips are presented in a preface and are repeated at the end of a recipe when a potentially harmful ingredient is used. Other craft books, such as Ann Wise man's Making Things: the Hand Book of Creative Discovery, Book 2 (Little, 1975) and Phyllis Fiarotta's Sticks and Stones and Ice Cream Cones (Workman, , 1973) sometimes include a similar recipe or two, but it's quite handy to have a number of these recipes under one cover. This revi sion of the 1973 edition includes more than 12 new recipes, many of which do have warning notes accompanying them, mak ing this edition more appropriate for adult use or adult supervised activities with young children. For young children, the best book is still Chernoff's Clay Dough, Play Dough (Walker, 1974; o.p.). Maria B. Salvadore, District of Columbia Public Library
