How many of you have kids who love to take pictures?  Do your kids really understand the concepts behind taking pictures?  John Crippen is the author of a great book titled Cameras For Kids- Fun and Inexpensive Projects for the Little Photographer

What the book is about:
Cameras for kids is a fun filled book full of projects for young children. The projects are fun, simple and inexpensive to create. The book was made to stimulate art and creativity at an early age. Most of the supplies can be picked up a places such as the dollar store. Kids do not need computer knowledge as long as parents can print the photos for the projects. Basic camera functions, settings, and composition are covered in this book.

This book is filled with projects for young children who are wanting to start learning about photography.  The book is broken down into three categories.
  • Introduction to the Basics
  • Camera Shooting Projects
  • Arts and Crafts with your Photos
The book is primarily for children ages 7 and up. The projects are on a three star difficulty level, with one star being for the younger children.
There is a list of supplies for the different projects, most are very inexpensive, and could be bought at the dollar store.

This book is really good for young children who want to start learning about photograpghy.  It is broken down for children and easy to understand.  There is everything from the basic buttons on a camera to rules of composition.
Some of the projects are:
  • How to make a picture frame
  • How to make a puzzle using a picture
