Cool Trash To Treasure – School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

“Upcycling” gets a shot in the arm with these attractive craft books, each of which contains at least six funky projects, some requiring little more than glue and scissors to accomplish. Unlike many craft volumes, the design palette here does not automatically scream “girl,” although there are a few jewelry and accessory projects that seem specifically girl-oriented. . . .This set contains good classroom ideas, most involving measuring and calculation, which could be like catnip for crafty kids with time on their hands.
