Big Sis is 9 and can work with this book all on her own. It is listed for ages 8-11 and I feel that age range is pretty accurate as it does take the ability to read and cut, fold and glue correctly. Although Lil Sis at 6 enjoyed “helping” Big Sis play with this book. We just love arts and crafts in our house and this book was hours of fun. I think this book would also be great as an acitivty book to put into a backpack to entertain while traveling.
