The instructions for each project include a materials list, step-by-step illustrated directions, and a color photograph of the completed project. The book begins with an illustrated introduction to rope, with information about the parts of a rope, binding rope, coiling rope, and measuring rope, then provides directions for seven basic knots. In addition to directions for nine useful projects, directions are also provided for making a display board of knots, which might be a good Scout or school project. I recommend the book for kids eight and up, as well as adults interested in knotting. (Kids Can Press, 2006. ISBN: 9781553378341) Compare prices.
