Award-winning author Christine Petrell Kallevig wrote short articles about nine world-famous artists and their amazing outdoor sculptures in Cleveland, Akron, and Westlake. Then, with the assistance and advice of several local teachers, she developed language arts, math, art education, and social studies activities based on each sculpture and required Ohio standards.
Written specifically for Northeast Ohio students and their teachers, the information, fabulous photographs, and thought-provoking activities are arranged in 9 units in an easy-to-use, self-explanatory consumable student workbook (8.5 in. x 11 in.).
The activities provide writing practice, fulfill visual art requirements, and introduce 20th century Northeast Ohio history, all in one inexpensive, self-contained booklet.

Professional storyteller Fran Stallings wrote in the 2009 Spring issue of Territorial Tattler, "I tested several of them on a 6th grader of only moderate manual skill, who was pleased at her success and proudly retold the stories to younger siblings at home. This suggests that even us clumsy adults could learn to do the stories while folding the forms! The diagrams are excellent and easy to follow. Origami forms include: seagull, cicada, snake, owl, leaf, coyote (fox), duck, butterfly, Trillium, rabbit, fish, toad. Story topics include: food chains; life cycles; metamorphosis; habitats; photosynthesis; characteristic traits of reptiles, birds, fish, amphibians, ants. It is amazing how the information gets linked to concurrent folds in the process of producing the final paper form! Kallevig's Follow-up Activities would be useful in the classroom or at summer camp, as well as in a home setting. She provides a lot of additional information about each animal, plant, or eco-niche as well as thought-provoking research suggestions and quizzes. I can recommend this little book as a useful addition to any storytellers bag of tricks."
