LANGUAGE:English

"This book has eight projects for you to make out of paper for Valentine's Day. These are simple projects that could easily be done by elementary age students or even preschool kids with a little bit of help.
The highs:
-easy-to-follow steps accompanied by color pictures
-easily attainable supplies
-clear pictures of finished products
-*This one gets a star because it's the reason this book is worth looking at. The beginning of the book introduces Valentine's Day and its origins! Also, each project is introduced by a short paragraph that either gives a historical reason for the project (Esther Howland started the tradition of lacy heart cards in 1847!) or a brief overview of why the project is a useful one.

The lows:
-some of the resources listed in the "for further reading" area are no longer available
-you are instructed to trace patterns with tracing paper and transfer them to cardstock, but when you get to the patterns pages, you are instructed to "enlarge 165%" or "enlarge 200%". Obviously, you're going to need some super amazing skills or a copy machine to both trace and enlarge to patterns.
-there are only 8 projects, and a crafty kid is going to fly through them quickly

Overall, it's a pretty good little Valentine's Day book, and it's one you might want to check out at your library!
