Not meant for young kids as the paper folds may rip but from middle primary should be fine. Looks so beautiful closed with wood covers or open. Great it's rechargeable with a phone charger (wire included) and the indicator light turns green when charged. Book can be left open and light turned off with switch but so much more fun to close book instead. Perfect size. Just be cautious when charging the lamp, this is the weak point I suppose, so if you roughly shove in the charger or move it while charging the metal part will loosen from the wood.
