PATTERN RATING:Star Rating Patterns have few to no markings, are overlapped(but not confusing - smaller patterns fit entirely into larger ones, so there's no crossed lines). They are simple but have a lot of charm. I hovered between a "2" and "3" - and it was the appeal of the projects that bumped the rating up. I think these could be a lot of fun for a beginner sewer.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating Instructions are well broken down, easy to follow, and have lavish amounts of illustration.

SUMMARY- This looks like a really fun book that does what it is designed to do - draw kids into the creative process while providing mom(or dad) a means of teaching basic sewing skills. I was really impressed with this little book.
