No child should be forced to grow up without the simple pleasure of taking a loop of string and turning it into Jacob's Ladder, Eiffel Tower and of course, Cat's Cradle. The figures chosen for this extraordinary book are ancient in origin and come from all over the world. Some can be done solo, some not. No step is left un-illustrated. The book is colorful throughout, wire bound, 36 board pages, and built to take all the loving abuse it will undoubtedly receive. Strung onto the cover of each book is a tie-dyed loop of cord, perfect size and texture for making every string creation possible!
