This is a great, easy to use book filled with new craft ideas. It is divided by seasons but many of the crafts could be done anytime. It has some standard crafts like pinatas but also has some fabulous new ideas. There is a chinese dragon, a tidepool with fun water creatures wow-the way these are made was really cool!), several games you build yourself, hindu bracelets and lots of other things. It has LOTS of bright pictures and easy to follow, step by step instructions, with extra photos and close ups. I liked that it has crafts from several different cultures, because they look fun, not because they are PC. The Diwali candles were especially fun for my kids to make. It gave us a reason to look up Holidays we wouldn't normally study. My favorite part of this book was the little extras on many of the pages. Some of them are tips, some are extra projects to use with the craft on the page and some are interesting facts that go with the craft. This is a very nice, easy to use book and nearly all the ideas are things my kids would actually make. The only thing I didn't like was the occasional use of words we don't see very often. Roll a satsuma sized ball-hmm...how big is a satsuma anyway? But for the most part, it is still easy to follow and guess based on the clear pictures that accompany such instructions.
