All the activities are easy, all are fun—the emphasis here is on the process, rather than specific results—and none require any elaborate materials . . . a real find.—Sesame Street Parents, "Picks for Parents" "Preschool Art offers help to parents of preschoolers struggling to meet the challenge of their children’s creative impulses. Prodigies aside, most kids this age aren’t interested in the final product; they are into the doing of art . . . . There is no right or wrong way, only their way. Kohl understands. She explains how to make and use many kinds of art materials based on the concept that the process not the product, is important. From old standbys like play dough to new craft discoveries like liquid crayons and frozen balloons, she provides hundreds of ways to enjoy and explore the creative process."—MetroParent, Milwaukee, Wisconsin "Kohl offers 250 projects complete with materials, processes and illustrated variations. She also adds practical hints that troubleshoot anticipated problems. The recipes are valuable well beyond the preschool years."—SchoolArts Other art books by MaryAnn Kohl: The Big Messy Art Book (Gryphon House), 0-87659-206-X Cooking Art (Gryphon House), 0-87659-184-5 Global Art (Gryphon House), 0-87659-190-X

Horse Games & Puzzles for Kids
102 Brainteasers, Word Games, Jokes & Riddles, Picture Puzzles, Matches & Logic Tests for Horse-Loving Kids
Paperback      ISBN: 1580175384
You can count on horse-crazy kids to be doing something horse-related, thinking about something horse-related, or planning something horse-related 24 hours a day, seven days a week. That's why Cindy A. Littlefield created the Kids' Book of Horse Games & Puzzles. If kids are going to spend their time horsing around, they might as well jump-start their creativity and boost their problem-solving skills at the same time. The book is divided into five sections: Word Play, Picture Puzzles, Drawing, Fun and Games, and Brain Teasers. (All the answers are included.) Take the "Horse and Pony Stall of Fame" challenge by matching up famous equines with their human or television character companions. Snuffle through the "Hungry as a Horse" quiz and see if you can find the names of 14 things horses like to eat hidden in a block of letters. Then break out your best drawing pencils and learn how to draw a horse's portrait in six easy steps. Fun, horsey cartoons and illustrations adorn every page. And scattered throughout the book are horse riddles, bits of horse trivia, and quotes about horses. Here, at last, is the perfect book for kids who love puzzles almost as much as they love horses.
