Date of publication: May 24, 2016

Themes: photography, how-to, ideas, friendship

This playful and fun collection of 25 hands-on and creative photography projects encourages young readers to experiment with their imaginations, get messy with materials, and engage with the world in new and exciting ways. Indoors or outdoors, from a half-hour to a whole day, and whether alone or with friends, family or an unsuspecting pet, there is a photo activity for all occasions. Some don’t even require a camera!

Just in time for summer. Really, I think it's an ideal book to give kids. This activity book has detailed instructions (sometimes too detailed; I can see some kids just glossing over the words--but I did expand my vocabulary with "triptych"), plenty of example pictures (very useful and well done, may make the glossing-over previously mentioned okay), the added illustrations are helpful and tastefully done, and (most importantly) packed with some really fun ideas. Like, I'm grabbing my camera and doing this. Me. Right now. No joke. There's some super awesome activities!

So in the day and age of social media (coughPinterestcough) and website how-tos, I think it's really nice to be able to hand a kid a book and say, "Here's a bunch of really cool ideas and activities, why don't you give it a browse?" Trust me, this one will get kids thinking creatively and having fun, just in time for summer.

Find it on Amazon or IndieBound
