This is a wonderful book for learning cross stitch. It is geared towards a young gal but it would be so much better if it included boys or adults. Anyone can learn but showing it as a "gals" book, I'm betting the two other types will stay away from it.

There are lots of photos and the words are well written and easy to follow. With the nine projects, I'm sure any gal (or others) could find something that they would like to make. Tips are given in blue boxes for an extra learning lesson.

The materials list is shown in a brown box and the thread needed along with the stitch count and design sizes are provided next. As a teacher, I can see more possible ideas that these designs will make so you aren't limited to just these nine projects.

If you have a young gal in your life that wants to learn to cross stitch, this book will guide her every step of the way.
