This attractive title will likely inspire children to look at the world around them in a new way. The book provides instructions for nine kid-friendly projects that incorporate materials from the natural world (a list of craft supplies not found in nature is also included). Full-color photographs accompany step-by-step directions for making both practical items, such as a mini-greenhouse planter, and decorative ones (seashell clay prints). Variations on the original project are often suggested, encouraging readers to be creative. Contains a glossary, link to publisher-selected resources, and an index.

Series Review
These crafts have easy-to-follow instructions and use materials found around the house or at a craft store. Projects such as cuddly stuffed sock monsters (Fabric), pinecone hedgehogs (Nature), accordion butterflies (Paper), and handprint animals (Paint) offer an impressive range of simple creative tech-niques while producing amusing decorative items Clear photographs provide reasonably complete doc-umentation of each process, but some kids will wish for more detailed descriptions. For example, in Fabric, diagrams would be more effective to demonstrate braiding or weaving than photographs. A super-bright design palette and great-looking finished projects give this series shelf appeal. Most kids will be able to achieve attractive results, no matter their level of artistic talent. Some of these crafts could be considered curriculum-adjacent, making them solid choices for rainy-day class projects.
