Book Review

Picture This: Fun Photography and Crafts by Debra Friedman (Kids Can Press, 2003)

Ages 8 -13

The activities in Picture This are simple to do and easy to understand, but there's enough room for creativity that even older kids will enjoy the ideas. The jazzy layout also keeps the book from seeming too babyish.

Picture This gives almost equal attention to taking good pictures and displaying them in an interesting way. After the project on taking pictures of everyday things, there's a project "Star Nameplate" where kids can take their pictures of everyday things and make a star-shaped sign for their door showing aspects of their everyday life in collage form. Within that project, there are tips for enhancing, cropping, and mounting the photos.
