My thoughts:

I never knew there was so many cool things you could make from the rubber bands and the loom.  This book is loaded with over one hundred colorful pages of different designs you can make, such as bracelets, earrings and hair clips just to name few.  

My daughter and I already had a loom and would just make the bracelets from the rubber bands.  But now that we both looked through this book, we have now been making cool bracelets together.  We have also made earrings.  And no two projects look alike.  I never realized that you could incorporate beads until I saw it in this book.  

Each project has a detailed colorful page with step by step directions.  And the directions are easy to follow.  And you don't need a lot of tools for any of these beautiful project.  You basically need hooks, rubberbands, a loom or two, clips and a few others depending on what project you are going to make.
