Booklist - Ann Kelly

"The newest titles in the prolific Kids’ Guides series offers up the basics on “some of the hottest topics around.” Duct Tape includes every kid’s go-to project—the wallet—but also outlines step-by-step instructions for simpler items, like a book cover, and more involved items, like a vest. A simple introduction to the basics of duct taping at the beginning of the book is helpful in ensuring your project won’t take a turn for the sticky-wad worse. Moving from abandoned cities (Machu Picchu) to those destroyed by nature (Pompeii), Lost Cities provides historical information and extends the basics by asking questions like, Could Mount Vesuvius erupt again? Pro Wrestling welcomes readers to the ring and introduces signature moves, including the ace crusher, and famous champion wrestlers like Dylan Postl, aka “Hornswoggle.” For young stargazers, there’s Constellations, which devotes a spread to each of the 11 featured constellations. For the tricky task of locating, say, Cassiopeia, consult the “Gazing Guide,” which offers reference points. The information in each title is contained within text boxes, making for an easy reading experience. With “Fun Facts” and a variety of engaging visual material throughout, plus back matter that includes “Read More” and offers up websites to visit, kids will have no trouble discussing these hot topics around the school water fountain." - Booklist

"Bought this one at the request of several students and was not disappointed. Along with some decent duct tape projects, this book explains the intricacies of working with duct tape...and is a good addition to my very small craft section. . . .maybe this will entice a few students of both genders to embrace their crafty side!" - Ms. Yingling Reads blog
