Reviews

 

“Lithe, immersive verse, voiced in the first person, inspires children to find solace, joy, and power in their handiwork...Poetry sparks an irresistible, primal urge to twist, cut, paint, draw, glue, carve, whittle, daub, tie, hammer, to simply make.”

—Kirkus

“An effective medley of concept, poetry, and artwork. Hand this title directly to elementary school art teachers.”

—School Library Journal

“Every poem is an invitation to get creative—the book is an obvious springboard into collaging, painting, baking, piñata making, and other activities at home or at school.”

—Publishers Weekly
