2.0 out of 5 stars Where's the pictures? March 18 2003
Format:Spiral-bound
I am inclined to think favorably of any book that comes out from Chronicle Books. They publish very good quality books. Their craft books are often first rate.
I bought this book through the mail, but was very dismayed to find that it has very few pictures of the crafts and activities. Consequently, it is not very enticing. I put it in a box and didn't think about it for months until I just unpacked it today.
Some of the activities seem awfully bland and unoriginal. Make and play with a paddle and ball? Make wet footprints on the sidewalk? Ideas like this for almost 20 bucks? This is not up to Chronicle's usual standards. There are some very fine books out there that suggest great activities for kids, but this isn't one of them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Think of this as a cookbook with bonus craft ideas. Feb. 5 2014
By Lynne - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Spiral-bound
The cover promises "activities * crafts * recipes," but recipes should have come first.
Sara Perry is probably best known for her cookbooks, and this is largely a collection of fun family recipes.
Many of her ideas would be perfect for children's birthday parties and sleepovers.
I know the first review was only two stars, but give this book another look.
