The Scrapbook Book Reviews:
Just a few of the books I've found and recommend. Any one of them would make a great addition to your home library.
Mama Panya's Pancakes:
On market day, Mama Panya s son
Adika invites everyone he sees to a pancake dinner. How will
Mama Panya ever feed them all? This clever and heartwarming
story about Kenyan village life teaches the importance of
sharing, even when you have little to give.
We had fun with this book -- my daughter thought the boy was just being "bratty" until we talked about how everyone contributed and how sharing led to more for everyone. Then she "got it", and now requests we read it often. The recipe for the pancakes is also easy and kids are able to help. Great book -- we also loved the illustrations -- some parts reminded us of life in Haiti which our Haitian-American kids loved

This one isn't exactly a Scraping book, but since a lot of you have been asking about digital images and digital photography... Amy contacted us and said she had just the answer for all the amateur digital photographers out there. We checked it out and I have to say, even though I've taken some photography courses at the college level; this book taught me more in a couple of hours that I learned in weeks in some of my classes. This one's a keeper. So, if you want to know how to turn your average photo's into pictures you'll be really proud of, check out Amy's book:
Now you can take the digital photos you ve always wanted, have them turn out to a professional quality that you'll be supremely proud of......
.....even if you ve never used a digital camera before and don't know anything about photography.

Gwen Diehn does a wonderful job of demystifying the process of creating a visual journal. With complete instructions and suggestions of what materials to use and how to use them she has given us a workshop in a book! Throughout the book are color photos of journal pages from everyday people with everyday experiences who, through their collages, writings, and drawings, show us how to make each day extra-ordinary.

Baby Scrapbooks: Ideas, Tips, and Techniques for Baby Scrapbooks
Reviewer: Debbie Davis from Lee's summit, Missouri United States
This was a great idea book. Get this book before your baby even arrives to help give you pointers on what to take pictures of and things to keep for your scrapbook. Plus, it helps pass the time by! After my baby was born I still had "fetal-brain-drain" and needed ideas for page layouts. In the back there are ideas for page titles and poems to include in your baby's book. Well worth the money......
Memory Makers Creative Photo Cropping for Scrapbooks: Steps for Turning Your Photos into Works of Art
Reviewer: Tiffany from Kalamazoo, MI United States
This book has some great ideas. It is more than the normal scrapbook ideas with cute paper and stickers. It has so many unique ideas so that you scrapbook won't be just like everyone elses. Most of the layouts are going to be a little more time consuming than the usualy ones but would be well worth it. I have just got this book and have already looked through it about 5 times and took it to work and had everyone else (at least the scrapbookers) and they loved it too. The ideas are simple enough for the novice or advanced scrapbooker. There are also no special materials required. Most ideas only take a lot of cutting, some edged scissors and normal cardstock and paper. i highly recommend it!
