" Different kinds of making are represented in this rhyming book from making a telescope to a blueprint, snack, smile, friend, and a difference. " said.

" This is the first book I've seen/noticed on the maker movement for young children. It is inspirational and inventive. It would be great to tie into a Maker Faire. It also has a girl of color as the central character. " said.

" What things can you make with your imagination and creativity. Think of all the possibilities as you go through your day making choices. This book encourages kids to think outside the normal choices and do something new and original. " said.

" Although I'm often put off by books that are too didactic, but I really like this and am going to try to read it aloud tomorrow to the 5th graders. Sorry they won't get to see the clever illustrations, but I'll leave it behind at the school for a while. Although it's geared to preschool-3rd I'm interested to see what the 5th graders will think. " said.

" Fun rhymes by Katey Howes tell the story with pages filled with objects created by this boy and girl. They celebrate all along the pages--things for play, things to 'think', things to sell and drink, things to give. It is a message of creative fun that leads to becoming a maker of something for others. Elizabet Vukovic's illustrations will inspire everyone to get out that sketchbook, bring out the blocks and cardboard, the saws and boards and paints and more. "Be A Maker!" " said.

" Katey Howes and Elizabet Vukovic have made a beautiful book, full of possibility. The sprightly rhyme and detailed pictures (filled with references to famous makers around the world) encourage readers to rustle up their imagination and passion to make a difference in their communities. " said.

" Call all creators, inventors and designers - a book to get your creative juices flowing! A fun book to introduce the Makerspace area at the beginning of the year. " said.

"I received a review copy from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

I loved this book and the fabulous illustrations! BE A MAKER will be on my list of gift books for all you maker families we are so lucky to be connected to! It celebrates all the ways kids create, and invites kids and their grownups to slow down and appreciate all that creativity.⁣
