Content descriptions

Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references.
Summary, etc.: Many toys are designed either to appeal to adults or without any particular goal in mind other than making money. Neufeld, a technology education teacher and an experienced woodworker, has created a collection of toys designed to teach children concepts such as fractions and patterns and to help develop their fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination. Toys include beads to string, a shape puzzle box, a stacking pyramid, a puzzle train, and a huge set of blocks. The instructions are geared toward beginning woodworkers, and most of the projects can be completed with basic tools. Neufeld suggests the use of nontoxic oil or food coloring as a safe finish, and each toy has a 'learning through play' sidebar that shows different types of play that can accomplish certain educational goals. These toys are ideal for toddlers through early grade school- aged children and will last for generations. Essential for public libraries. 144pg. CAHNERS PUBLISHING, c2003.-
