Folk Crafts for World Friendship
This is one of those books that has a great idea, but doesn’t quite deliver. My particular copy was a little sad and yellowed, and should have been weeded on condition. Even for 1976, the artwork and pictures are a bit stale. From the cover, I would not have expected craft projects to do. The look of this book makes me think of an adult museum publication rather than a book for kids. I do like the idea of craft projects for kids from around the world. It just ought to look like a book on crafts for kids from around the world.
PS. I lived in the UK for 2 years in the 1990s and never heard of “pearlies.” Obviously, I missed something. Can someone enlighten me?
