They are fabulous! What I really like about these 3 Kid Crafts titles: Starting with basics how to use the book, the note to adults from each author, the origins of leather/wood The half-tone subject headings at the top of the left-hand pages for easy navigation Complete introductions for each craft: types of each material, processing, how to select, supplies needed, skills to master, what specific tools are and how they are used to create a particular effect, SAFETY guidelines!... esp. good in the woodworking books where they're really needed and they are repeated in each step where needed Each book takes the readers from beginner to advanced skill level and projects And these are real projects not just cutesy kid crafts these are items that will be of interest to the intended audience The layouts on each project are very clear: supplies, tools, skills, patterns, step-by-step photos to refer to Glossary and resources librarians love backmatter like this websites and suppliers are valuable for rural crafters The Woodcarving title starts off well, with the 2 page spread of colored photos of look what you can carve and here's all you need to get started who can resisit? This one also includes great tips on skill building to keep beginners encouraged. Excellent job
