"This attractive book suggests how to take unwanted materials and turn them into something useful—newspaper becomes gift bags; magazines become collages. Clear instructions explain the projects’ steps."
"Parents and schoolteachers should find good ideas in these books."
"This book teaches children how to repurpose items they already own or can find at yard sales, and in the process think about how wasteful we are as a society with all the 'stuff' we buy and throw out. The projects stimulate creativity and provide kids with endless opportunities to express themselves."
