This Activity Resource
Children will delight in this multifaceted craft book. There are seven broad categories: “African Safari,” “Tropical Forest,” “Animals & Their Young,” “Inside the Aquarium,” “The Reptile House,” “Northern Forest,” and “The Big Cats.” Each section has a map and a short introduction, followed by several projects about individual creatures. Each project is covered in three pages. Scissors symbols indicate the level of difficulty, which is also listed in the index. The required materials would be found in most craft cupboards.
Some of the models of the animals are realistic; some are more representational. The steps are clearly numbered and fairly easy. Black-and-white line drawings will aid in project construction. Each project can easily be adjusted to a child’s skill level. For children who like hands-on activity this book will hold hours of fun.
