Did someone say “cats”?
This wasn’t too bad or too great either. The book is marketed to youth, but I think some of these projects require too much stuff and/or too much skill. When I was working in youth land, there would be that craft that was supposedly for the kids, but the parents ended up doing the whole thing. So as a library program idea, it’s not going to get anyone particularly excited, but I also have seen the right librarian doctoring up an okay craft into something spectacular.
Quick aside: As a person who has done both adult and youth librarianship, the level of skill, creativity, and the ability the youth librarians out there bring to the table is impressive. Adult services is easy, comparatively speaking. Kids always ask questions that constantly stump me. My colleagues at all the libraries where I have worked are amazing and so creative. The business nerd in me also thinks these are the people to develop into library management. Anyway, back to our regular show…
This might work better for a crafting family, depending on age/interest level. It’s not too bad, but it would probably require more planning than adults might be interested in doing. This is one of those books where you can’t really make a mistake by weeding or keeping. Let the circ numbers and condition make the decision for you.
