The For Dummies series breaks things down simply and is written with a conversational tone, so it's accessible to everyone, no matter what their beginning skill level. The For Kids portion of the series is geared towards kids 7-16. The nice thing with
the way they're written is that younger kids can understand, with
minimal adult intervention; but they don't sound childish, so they'll
still appeal to younger teens. My almost 8-year-old daughter was able to complete some of the more simple tasks and projects in each book in just the few days we've had them, and they'll be a great way to continue to stave off summer boredom, especially on rainy days!
