Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0525457216, Hardcover)Would it surprise you to learn that the word "bead" comes from the Anglo-Saxon word "bede" (which means "prayer"), or that each shape and type of bead has a name and a history? A String of Beads, a young "beader's" reflection on sorting and stringing beads with her grandmother, offers dozens of such interesting facts. We learn through this cheery story that beads have been around almost as long as people. With its bold illustrations and conversational tone, A String of Beads would make a terrific gift for any young crafter. (Ages 4 to 8)
