Special Feature

Many children love to draw, color, and make things with their hands. Being able to give their creations to others gives them such a feeling of accomplishment and pride. In this collection you will find books and kits of all kinds that help young people to learn how to draw, knit, sew, make pop-poms, paint, make tie-die decorated garments, and so much more. There are also coloring and activity books in the collection that are perfect for those "I am bored" moments.

Seasonal Feature

In November and December autumn shifts into winter. During these months we get serious about bundling up in warm clothes, toasting ourselves in front of warm fires and wood stoves, and finding ways to spend really wet or cold days. I actually really look forward to this time of year as I enjoy sitting under a warm blanket reading a book. What could be better? Take a look at these wintery volumes and enjoy.
