Little Homesteader: A Winter Treasury of Recipes, Crafts, and Wisdom

56755884. sx318

Little Homesteader is a well written and heartwarming collection of hands-on crafts and activities for young readers by Angela Ferraro-Fanning. Released 7th Sept 2021 by Quarto on their Ivy Kids imprint, it's 32 pages and is available in paperback format. 

This is such a fun book full of colorful illustrations by Annaliesdraws which are full of small details and suit the simple projects very well. There's such a wholesome and inclusive vibe throughout that I found myself smiling along. The projects are safe and will provide lots of ideas for families with young kids. There are some projects which can be done alone, but the ones which need adult supervision are clearly marked. They're all winter themed and include both indoor and outdoor activities. Some of the projects are also designed to help support wildlife with food and shelter/habitat.

This would make a great choice for public or classroom library acquisition, maker's groups, scouting/activity groups, church youth groups, and families. The included projects are aimed at roughly 5-8 year olds, but can be adjusted. 

Five stars. Fun projects, a wholesome book.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
