Sometimes you do not know what quality you are going to get until you open the package. My daughter and I were delighted with these beads - and quick delivery too. Recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must-read, 7 Jun 2010

This review is from: Mornings in Jenin (Paperback)
I absolutely loved this book - I had chosen it for a book club read and we all loved it, although using the word "love" to describe a story so tragic may be a little trite. One of the reviews mentioned that the writing was too simplistic - I felt that the story was simply told, but that this simplicity and lack of detailed desription of all the horror made it all the more poignant and credible. There is only one bit right at the end (when you read it you will know what I am referring to!) that was unsatisfying to read as it did not ring true with the rest of the novel, and was not really necessary to add. I finished the book thinking that I had a much clearer understanding of why people would be driven to do some of the extreme things we read about in the papers, and it gave a Palestinian perspective on the troubles in their beautiful country. I also think that a lot of the book was about love and family and humanity. I cannot believe that it is not a world-wide best seller!

This is a great book and kit, and my 11 year old daughter is really enjoying designing and making professional bracelets for family and friends. Instructions are clear and the loom is more substantial than I had expected.
