"As the author of one of the earliest kids' crochet books myself (Kids Can Do It Crocheting, 2003), I know a thing or two about how to teach children to crochet. I highly regard the book Deborah has produced. It is chock-full of everything one needs to know in order to become an enthusiastic crocheter; yet she breaks it down into progressive parts that serve to hold a child's interest without them getting discouraged." - Gwen Blakley Kinsler, founder of the Crochet Guild of America "Kids who look for easy step-by-step photos for crochet (and many an adult beginner) will find Complete Photo Guide to Crochet the perfect starting place for success, teaching the basics of selecting and using hooks and yarn to produce finished results...With its kids-oriented projects, clear explanations, good-sized color photos and approach, this is the item of choice for parents who would teach their kids crocheting basics."
