With the start of school means the start of school projects too. I know as a grade school child, I loved to build dioramas and paint posters to further explain my assignments. So to celebrate those crafty kids out there I thought I’d share with you a great (and very funny) picture book. It’s called Crafty Chloe by Kelly DiPucchio and illustrated by Heather Ross.

It’s about a young girl, Chloe, who LOVES to create and build things: macaroni necklaces, colorful flower hats, and even clothing. Yep, Chloe even knows how to sew!

Her skills and creativity are put to the test when she has to come up with the most perfect HOMEMADE gift her for good friend, Emma, for her birthday. And it has to be very PURPLE too. Chloe feels the pressure. Can she do it? What will the resourceful Chloe make? You’ll have to read it to find out!

This modern story is charming and Ross’s expressive drawings easily pull you into the characters. You can’t help but root for Chloe. This book is for anyone who loves to receive or make homemade gifts.
