Cool Parties Review in School Library Journal

My Cool Parties series for ABDO was reviewed in the December edition of SLJ. Here’s the complete review:

Gr 3-6–This colorful set of six books has a lot of child appeal. The vivid photos and well-organized and readable content provide great springboards for party ideas. While the basics of planning, preparation, and attention to detail are repeated almost verbatim in each volume, the development of the individual themes and clever ideas are what make the titles stand out. Step-by-step crafts, sample menus, and easy-to-replicate games and activities add to the fun. Solid additions that offer sound and practical advice.–Elaine Charnow, Deasy/Landing Elementary Schools, Glen Cove, NY
