book review

Collecting Things by Kate Needham

Cover Image

Many kids are collectors and don’t even realize it, from the shells from that trip to the beach littering their dresser to the cool rocks from the yard on their desks.  This book not only gives kids ideas on what to collect, but what to do with the collection once they have one.  For example, the section on shells describes how and when to look for shells, and how to sort them.  This is followed by a section on how to varnish a shell, and information on using shells to decorate boxes, picture frames, and more.  Other kinds of collections featured in the book are stamps, marbles, souvenirs, and coins, among others.  If you have a young collector in your house, check this book out!
