"I have a three-year old daughter with whom I wanted to explore arts and crafts. I looked at many different arts and crafts books before choosing this one to buy. Many other books that I looked at had projects that had complicated instructions or used materials that were expensive. I needed a book that I could pull off the bookshelf, open up, and pick a suitable art project quickly. Little Hands has realistic projects- by that, I mean projects that are meaningful, uncomplicated, and use basic materials that you're likely to have around the house."
"I work with special ed preschoolers and this book was very helpful in planning art projects with the kids. The instructions are clear, the ideas are fun and there are pictures of what the finished product should look like. I would highly recommend this book to anyone working with young kids; teacher or parent."
