2.0 out of 5 stars Its colorful anyway. . . 30 Aug 2000
By A Customer - Published on
This book has very colorful illustrations and some interesting bits of information, but the book is large for the for the number of knots covered and does have some misleading or wrong illustrations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful with many kid friendly diagrams 23 Jun 2000
By Girl Scout Troop Leader - Published on
This book was given to me by a friend. As a Girl Scout Leader I found the book very helpful in 1st learning to make the knots myself and then teaching them to my girls. The girls found the diagrams very easy to follow. I would recommend this book to anyone who needs good visuals to learn to tie knots.
1.0 out of 5 stars Keep Looking 7 Sep 2014
By Ingrid - Published on
Picked this up along with several other books for my daughter who is interested in learning to tie some knots. Book is colorful and easy to read (I had high hopes) but the diagrams provided are too simplistic in many instances to actually help you figure out how to tie the knots - an unforgivable flaw. Using this is an exercise in frustration if you are a beginner - there are much better reference guides available, keep looking.
