This is a combination sewing, embroidering, needlepoint, knitting, and crocheting beginner's book geared toward girls 6-8 years old. The projects are cutesy but don't expect them to last. They chose a nice selection of knitting and crocheting stitches and the projects using them are well-described. As for the sewing projects, there's a cute felt doughnut and hand-sized soccer ball, but the other projects weren't worth doing. This is a nice way to introduce a little girl to all the basic needle crafts including using a knitting spool. Tastefully done with plenty of photographs.

My daughter (who is nearly 8) loves this book. The first project we've tried together was the doughnuts in the applique section. Great project for all of us -- my daughter, myself, AND my 6 year old son, too!
