Rocks and pebbles are easy to overlook in our world since they are often underfoot, but when they're transformed into an emoji pendant, tic-tac-toe game, or refrigerator magnet, they become inspiring materials to craft a variety of attractive and entertaining objects. This exciting collection of projects shows readers how to use rocks they find to make heartfelt gifts for friends and family. Each clever project is made achievable with accessible directions accompanied by colorful photographs. Young artists will realize that artistic inspiration is truly all around us.

Series Review
The opportunity for your library group to make something permanent is going to be hard to resist. Some of the projects in Rock Art, a JLG selection, have a similar community feel (game pieces, alphabet), while others take inspiration from materials: “Try turning your stone around and look at it from different angles.” Observation is also a theme in Glow Sticks, as readers see how their lights look inside a balloon or through fabric, tape, or paper. Precise directions, supported by good process photos showing hands in motion, contain plenty of opportunity for personalization. Tips for working with each material (clean duct tape gunk off scissors with vinegar, alcohol, or peanut butter) and skills practice (measuring, mixing, transferring a pattern) add value. With 11 inspired, original projects in each book, this series may spend more time at your desk than on the shelf.
