The idea behind this is great. There are some new activities that young girls wouldn't think to do on their own and those are fun. However, some of the activities are just slight variations of things that girls know how to do anyway, such as "cootie-catchers."

When I ordered this book, I thought it would be good for a young teen but after seeing it, it would be better for ages 8 through 11. It would be fun for a road-trip for this age group, but probably won't be a book that someone would refer back to for ideas over a long time period.

I got my daughter (age 7) this book for her birthday and she is still playing with it months later. She can do it by herself and likes discovering each new project. A very cute idea.

Yes, I'm a kid at heart. I am 32 and bought this book for myself and love it. Still love to color, cut & paste, draw, and this book has a little bit of everything.
Keri Smith also wrote, "Wreck This Jornal" which is a blast.

I love the idea behind this book. Great ideas, presented in a very fun format. My daughter enjoyed the variety, and I even sat down with her and did some of the activities, too. Keri Smith is a genius at getting those creative juices flowing no matter the age! Her other books are fantastic, and this one was just a delight. It is a perfect gift for a preteen girl who likes to doodle and do crafts--compliment the book with some basic supplies and a pretty box to keep it all organized.

Got this for my daughter for her seventh birthday; it wasn't on her wish list but she still went nuts for it the minute she saw it. She loves everything to do with paper, and this book has kept her busy for a month, now. Games, puzzles, crafts -- there's SO much in this little book. She goes back to the activities over and over, and shows everyone she knows how "awesome" it is. This was easily the favorite (and one of the least expensive!) of her gifts.

Tear Up This Book!: The Sticker, Stencil, Stationery, Games, Crafts, Doodle, And Journal Book For Girls! (American Girl Library) (Spiral-bound)
by Keri Smith (Author)

My two seven year old granddaughters loved this book and they spent hours playing the games, doing the activities, etc. I gave it to one of them for Valentines Day but it was a hit with both of them and they willingly shared the fun! My daughter was impressed with the book too and the way the girls enjoyed it.
