Comment List (Total:3)
- This is a great workbook for a 4 year old to prepare for kindergarten. It contains multiple, repetitive activities that reinforce counting, ABCs, and logical concepts (such as selecting which image is different or doesn't belong). My daughter has gotten a great deal of enjoyment out of this. I'm not sure I would rate it so highly if I had paid full price, but it is well worth the $5.99 I picked it up for on the Bargain Book rack. It even comes with a CD containing the same sorts of activities ("games")you will find in the workbook.
- The pages in this book are more geared toward those getting ready for Kindergarten (around four years old). The title of this book had me thinking it would be appropriate for three year olds, most of whom don't have enough dexterity to be trying to trace and write letters. I pictured workbook pages that would contain some sort of manipulatives and even short activities to help the child learn Preschool skills. If this is what you are looking for, you won't find it in this book. If you want workbooks for especially suited for two and three year olds to get them ready for preschool, try the series My Discovery Book About_____ by Brighter Visions, the Toddler Time Workbook Series (now out of print) by the McClanahan Book Company, or the Fisher Price Toddler workbooks.
- The presentation of the information in this book is very colorful and kid-friendly. Exercises are easy to do and none feel like too much of a chore. The pictures are appropriately large and most of the excercises invole identifying, coloring, or drawing lines to and from objects. There are more 'fun' exercises mixed in with the language/math/shapes/colors.In all, an excellent book and useful.
