Library Alive: Promoting Reading and Research in t&hellip by Gwen Gawith
4.0 out of 5 stars An oldie but goodie!, 14 Aug 2013
There are lots of ideas here to make library visits exciting for children. There are activities for children at Key Stage 1 and 2. It is good as a resource with photocopiable activities. However, this predates the digital age as we know it, so there are references to video and tapes, not DVD's, CD's or computers. It is great for encouraging reading and library research and exploring books, but not other, newer resources.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected!, 17 Jan 2013
I bought this as a gift for a teenager and was disappointed that all the material in the pack had very geometric patterns. I expected more variety, as in the picture. However, the rest of the pack is fine and I have kept it to make badges with my own fabric.

Lovely, simple and colourful projects to sew, knit and crochet. My girls are 7 and 9 and the three of us have been knitting over Christmas. I agree that it is really good for children, but I love Jane Bull's modern simple style, so I shall be adapting ideas from the book myself. It also offers simple guidelines and I plan to try my hand at crochet, which I have never fully mastered. We will be knitting dolls and taking inspiration from Jane Bull. She brings these these age-old crafts into the 21st Century.
