My thoughts:

I have never knitted before and always wanted to learn, and through this book my eleven year old daughter and myself had fun learning how to knit.  

In this book, there are instructions with a color page of showing step by step on how to start.  In the of this book there is a section Tools and Resources.  It shows in picture detail and lists supplies needed along with the main supplies, knitting needles and yarn. Everything you need to know and learn as a beginner is in this book.

It is gonna take a lot of practice, but my daughter and I are really having fun learning to knit.  We are working on making wash clothes as our first project, and plan to do others of the many knitting projects in this book.
