KIRKUS REVIEW

Ten experts on art activities for preschool children explain how--and why--to guide youngsters in making paper-and-paste animals, masks (from paper bags, boxes, papier-mâchÉ), puppets, and kites; in weaving and modeling; in working with such new materials as self-sticking plastics and styrofoam. There's also an unclassifiable section on painted stones and stone sculptures--on the premise that ""The unrestricted painting of stones varying in shapes and sizes with different textures, detached from any forced creativity, provides the child with knowledge that could other-wise only be gained by laborious theory. . . ."" A stimulating, clear, precise presentation, with photos that invite you to try.
