Awards & Honors:
Young makers will learn ways to use (and reuse) everyday items in craft projects based on various kinds of ocean life, but this book goes above and beyond, also teaching about those creatures and the waters they call home. The double-page spreads are well organized, keeping all informational text about the given subject on the left-hand page, while placing all instructions for a related craft on the right-hand page. Beaton’s illustrations of the animals, such as dolphins and sharks, are colorful, and they are accompanied by helpful templates as well as an image of the finished craft. Steps are clearly described and can be completed by children with little to no adult supervision. Interesting facts about each animal will help children understand more about marine life, the dangers of pollution, and what they can do to help. Written in a knowledgeable voice and combining fun facts with creative ideas, this informative craft book is a must for any nonfiction children’s collection.
