"Unique, family-friendly projects. . . . Pick up a copy and you'll be DIY-ing in no time!"-Scholastic Parent & Child "Can you believe these materials come together to make something so pretty and useful? It's like magic. Almost."-Today's Parent "This excursion into childhood's dream world . . . is not a typical kids' craft book. . . . The emphasis is clearly on the home, but there are clear applications for classrooms, day care, and the enterprising babysitter needing to answer the "I'm bored" whine. Hardly just a rainy-day project compendium, this is work to keep brains busy and families happy."-Publishers Weekly, starred review "Endless fodder for creativity. . . . The inventive DIYs range from superhero capes created from dish towels to decoupage animal masks that would make John Derian proud."-Lonny "Rainy day life saver. . . . The step-by-step pictures make it pretty impossible to screw up these crafts."-Metro
