Book: Nim's Island by Wendy Orr
Program Date: Wednesday, September 16 from 1-1:30 pm
This book includes over thirty projects you can easily make from materials you may have around the house or could easily find in thrift shops or on clearance at retail stores. The projects range from hot pads to tote bags to blankets to hats, and all are easily accomplished by someone with basic sewing skills. The photographs feel like those you'd find in your old family albums and the handmade items have a homey, very doable feel.
But don't fret! You can still check out DVDs of past Reading Rainbow episodes here at CPL.
