Review: Be a Maker

Little people are the most amazing makers. Sure, they make noise and they make mess, but they also make telescopes from toys and entire worlds with their imaginations; they make fun and friends, and they make a difference in the world.

This is a truly delightful book about the myriad ways children can make things each day. It follows two children as they make everything from a snack to a trip into outer space, as well as making a big impact on their community.

A playful use of rhyme and repetition make this a beautiful book for a range of ages, while the vibrant mixed-media illustrations are jam-packed with colour and fun to inspire little imaginations.

Drawing on concepts of engineering, art, music, community and friendship, the book will inspire children to turn everyday items into incredible objects and ideas. It will spark activity and kindness, and is sure to leave them excited about the possibilities in each day. Highly recommended.
