In my opinion:
 
I was pretty impressed with Wee Felt Worlds. I've never tried needle felt but I do have the supplies to get started. The best part about this book is the step by step instructions. Although, it would be nice to have a DVD to go along with it. I'm a visual learner so I appreciated the photos but needed additional assistance. My favorite scenes were the Little Cub's Adventure and Land of the Dinosaurs. I love that after you create these fun characters, your imagination could run wild.  The characters are perfect to keep your little guy or gal busy. Just be careful of small parts. However, it will give you an excuse to play along with your son or daughter while watching for bite size objects. Did I mention that it includes 50+ mini-projects to make. I definitely recommend this cute book.
 
One of my fabulous readers will get a chance to win this awesome book.
