I really enjoyed this book.  Every pattern includes extremely helpful and up-close photography for completing each project.  All of the projects are photographed very clearly. The font is nice & clean and easy to read.  Each pattern lists the skill level needed to crochet the project.  The sections are divided to provide easy thumb through.  Unfortunately I don't have any wee ones in my life right now, but I would definitely make some of these items as gifts for baby showers!  Particularly, I really like Sock Monkey Hat and Diaper Cover, Beanie with Sheep Applique, Cable Hooded Cardigan, Dragonfly Baby Afghan, Baby Bib with Sheep Applique, and Legwarmers for Babies and Toddlers.  If you have a little one or little ones in your life, this a cute book filled with great gift-giving projects.  After all, handmade is heart-made! :)
