Worth the Money Jul 17, 2008
Ghana, West Africa, Nigeria, Zambia, Malawi, East Africa, Egypt, Kenya, South Africa, Cameroon, Australia (aboriginal painting); Southeast Asia, Japan, India, China, Israel, Middle East, Hawaiian Islands, Korea, Tibet, Indonesia, Fiji Islands, France, Medieval Europe, England, Switzerland, Austria, Ireland, Scotland, Greece, Denmark, Sweden, Italy, Russia, Germany, Poland, Ukraine, Netherlands, Native American, Guatemala, Mexico, Brazil, Puerto Rico, Panama, African-American, Chile...as you can see it is quite a resource. It's worth the money but I definitely recommend trying all crafts before attempting with your audience. You may need to adapt as not everything works so well as written - still a good buy.
Great ideas Nov 10, 2007
We are setting up an international education week at our school, and I needed some crafts to enrich the week. This book was very helpful for several reasons. The materials list are simple and inexpensive, the instructions are great and easy to follow, and the books covers a variety of cultures. Worth the addition to your library.
