Book Review: Totally Awesome Rubber Band Jewelry

I use Grammarly's plagiarism checker because it's said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but flattery is nothing more than furthering one's own interests by whatever means necessary anyway. And it's just lazy.

My daughter Sarah is squarely aboard the rubber band loom boat, so when I got the opportunity to review a book of patterns, I jumped at it. Since she is the one who used the book, I decided she should be the one to review it. I've pasted it below, just as she wrote it. She's 11.

Rainbow Loom
By : Sarah Arcand

The Book
  OMG! Rainbow Loom bracelets are trending fast! I found out about  The Rainbow Loom and bracelets when my mom, Crystal Arcand, got an instructional book on how to make Rainbow Loom bracelets to review. She asked me to review it! So . . . .

So Easy
  The Book and Loom are so easy to use! Pictures, bold words, step by step, and tips and tricks are so helpful and make it super easy to use, but I am very crafty just like my mom, Crystal Arcand.

My Bracelets
  I've made a lot of bracelets such as the starburst, single, triple, zipper, flower charm, back and forth, a fish tail, and earrings. All of these are easy, but I would still start with the single.

Would You Try It?
  I would love to try the book and loom, if I hadn't already! I think you would love this book too if you tried it. I love this book because it's easy to use and I've made a lot of bracelets, but not all of them - they are still coming up with new patterns around the world.
