KIRKUS REVIEW

There's a better coverage of handicrafts and various phases of natural history hobbies in this than in Handicrafts as a Hobby by Robert E. Dodds (Harper, page 92, February 15th bulletin) and it is more detailed in its how-to-do aspects and less juvenile in tone. Various kinds of gardening, window box, roof, terrarium, dish, with plenty of useful information on soils, temperature, light and plants; animals and their breeding and care; and the handicrafts, leather work, bookbinding, etching, pottery, plastics, chip and soap carving, pewter work -- an interesting selection of outlets for various personalities. Good of its kind.
