KIRKUS REVIEW

Here's a different and original kind of book- a bright little volume devoted toward fostering confidence in young children to try to make and do in the world of paper, paint and clay. While children through the first grade are usually uninhibited this gay easy-reading book gives ideas for things to make without encouraging copying. ""You can make things out of things. A statute out of a lump of clay, a castle out of sand, a pie out of mud, a ball out of snow."" On successive pages the child sees real flowers and animals as well as those from paper and clay. ""In art, you can copy something in the world the way it looks to you. Or in art you can make something that no one has ever seen before"". A brief little nudge in the ribs which will say to the hesitant and timid child- ""Go ahead- try your paints and clay.
