Roxy1961 writes: These books look super awesome -- I'm always looking for all levels of craft projects. Even tho I am beyond the age range stated (waaaaay beyond), I know I'd get a lot out of them. Likely I would give the book (if I win) to a friend who's just started teaching a craft class to little ones @ her church!!

jbnenterprises70 writes: I have six grandchildren, three are girls in elementary school, and as soon as they get to grandma house, out come the scapebook paper, paper, scizzors, crayons, pencils, paints and the goodie box that has all the scraps of yarn, feathers, buttons, ribbons, you name it. And they can't wait to get started. I've love to share with them these exciting books. Thanks for the opportunity.

Diamondjen writes: I would love to win this! My daughter (age 7) LOVES to make crafts! She is always grabbing stuff off the top of the garbage and making things. She has already grabbed some cans out of the recycling bin and painted them and glued things to them. She is always trying to knit and crochet, but her little fingers can't get the hang of that yet. She would be thrilled to have these books!

Since my husband's company took a major hit with the economy we have tightened the spending belt. I was very happy to find the Kidcrafternoon in our public library. Just difficult to have to return them in the middle of a project. It would be great to have our own set. Thank you for this wonderful contest!
