These books seldom if ever disappoint, and this is a lovely book. Worth noting that it is extremely 'girly' (unsurprising given the subject matter) and probably only one or two of the activities would appeal to their brothers (suggest that you buy one of the 'boy themed' titles for them!). Some of the activities (such as making wands and tiaras) would be good birthday party activities provided that you were willing to do some advance preparation, and this book would be ideal fallback for a playdate when the weather turns nasty! One cynical question which applies to this whole wonderful series - where on earth are we parents then meant to display all these works of art (and that's not even taking into consideration what comes home from school)???!!!
