I purchased this book for my granddaughter, who was always asking me to make things FOR her. I thought it was very well-written and easy to understand. Even as a seasoned crocheter, I learned a few tips by reading through the book myself. I delivered it with a set of crochet hooks and a skein of yarn. My granddaughter found it easy to understand and actually began work on one of the projects in the book after reading through the instructions. I highly recommend.
