Publishers Weekly Reviews
Merenstein, owner of Hatch Art Studio in Pittsburgh, teams up with art educators at the Eric Carle Museum in Amherst, Mass., for a celebration of collage craft. Bright photographs feature children collaging with paper, fabric, and more. Each chapter focuses on a different concept, including "Places and Spaces," "Contrast," and "Construction." Quotes from children's book illustrators describe their own creative processes, and educators Meg Nicoll and Sara Ottomano describe museum workshops. The book's creators capture both the joy of collage and the spirit of a unique place. Ages 3–8. (Oct.)
