Since I am the lucky librarian who gets to take care of both Parenting Books and Craft Books in my office, Hand in Hand: Crafting with Kids landed on my desk.
I’ve already admitted that I’m not a Craft Person, but somehow I can never resist craft books–especially one with such beautiful photos, simple crafts, and moms writing about the creative life. Not to mention, the book features some of my favorite mom bloggers–including Soulemama (I blogged about her book here) and The Artful Parent (I guest posted on her blog here). I was particularly pleased to see picture books in so many of the photographs. I spied Dr. Seuss, Oliver Jeffers, Ed Emberley, and more.
As non-crafty as I am, I just may try MayaMade‘s project: The Little Book of Big Questions. What could be better than a handmade book to hold all the things your child wonders throughout the day that you can’t answer off the top of your head? Write the questions down to revisit later. Perhaps at the library, if I may say so. :)
