We want to help create motivated and engaged young readers. This blog is about children's and YA literature (especially New Zealand), literacy research, and ways to get, and keep, kids reading.
One in the series “Make Your Own Art” that includes the ever-popular masks, puppets, origami and drawing.
Attractively presented, well designed and structured these items provide a sound introduction to the recyclable materials, and the art tools required.
A very interesting range of creative ideas are covered including; a bird feeder, bookends, bookmarks and batik paper. Each comes with good illustrations and clear instructions.
The “eco-crafts” title lends itself to a considerable range of classroom use from art to recycling. It’s an excellent instructional book that will provide ideas and inspiration for teachers, parents and year 4-8 students.
A glossary, index and list of websites allow will allow readers to explore further any aspect or project that particularly takes their interest.
