I know this book claims that it is for kids, but I couldn't help but fall in love with the bright colors and the fact that they employ embroidery on yummy fabrics like felt and fleece. The projects are super-simple and it'd be a great book for adults who are just learning to embroider. Even if you already know most of the stitches, tips, and tricks, it's still a great book for the inspiration and project ideas alone (the cross-stitched pillows and embroidered journal covers are adorable). And, of course, if you have a little one who's itchin' to try some stitchin' then this book is a MUST have.
If you still aren't sure, you can download a sample project from the Melanie Falick Books blog (http://www.melaniefalickbooks.com/felt-needle-case-fro/) or view the gallery of projects (http://www.melaniefalickbooks.com/kids-embroidery-gallery/kids-embroidery-gallery/).
