I am a veteran in origami, and after carefully looking at numerous books, chose this book as the first origami book for my 7 year old daughter. She absolutely loves it, and is able to slowly work her way through the models which range from the very simple cats and dogs, and slowly increase in difficulty through a fox, a piano, a butterly, a fancy box, plus lots lots more. All are within easy reach of a complete beginner. I don't think I could have chosen a better beginners books for her, and have since gone on to buy 4 further copies for several of her friends and my niece! I would recommend this book to any child who would like to learn origami without any hesitation. Brilliant!
