    A classic animation project has just become a lot easier! I fondly remember making a more simplistic zoetrope than this in my middle school years, but a lack of proper materials, accurate templates or drawing skills made it really frustrating. With this book, all those problems are obsolete!

    Simply cut out all the pre-printed cardstock pieces (An X-Acto knife might be handy for the smaller cuts), fold on the dotted lines, and glue where indicated (glue not included). Then, following the simple directions, use your paper zoetrope to make your own animation strips. If you’re like me and can’t draw, you can cut out and assemble the included person and dog puppets, photograph them in various poses, then use the images to create your own strips. If even that seems a little too tricky at first, there are strips available for a free download at the author’s website: http://www.robives.com/blog/extra_animation_strips_zoetrope. There you’ll find such material to animate a silly bull fight, a walking robot, and two original photographic strips made by Eadweard Muybridge (a famous photographer who studied motion). Additional zoetrope strips are often available online, but those will require a little cutting and pasting to fit properly. The book also briefly explains a variety of stop motion animation techniques from simple to those requiring a digital camera.

    All in all, this is a really fun project that would be great for older students or even multiple ages, with older siblings building the zoetrope and younger siblings creating some of their own animations. From Dover, 26 softcover pages. – Laura

    This sharpener fits six different sizes of utensils and utilizes a fly-away cutting system that prevents over-sharpening. Although it has a heavy duty motor, it runs quietly and will not start unless the receptacle is in place – safety first! Larger than our X-ACTO Mighty Mite sharpener, the School Pro is designed for higher traffic and can hold fifteen whole pencils' worth of shavings before the receptacle is full. Comes with a 10-year warranty. – Rachel
