Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The First Steps series is designed for young children, aged 2 and up, who have never used a workbook before. The colorful and easy exercises in each First Steps workbook provide toddlers with the opportunity to become comfortable with the tools that are essential in every school – scissors, glue, pencils and crayons. These workbooks also teach the motor skills and problem-solving abilities that are a child’s First Steps towards success.

My 3.5 year old daughter loved this book.

After your child completes this book, I recommend Kumon's MY FIRST BOOK OF CUTTING, which has 40 more project pages for the scissor happy child to cut!

My (almost 5 year old) daughter loves cutting and gets really excited to do pages out of this book.

I have been reviewing all of the books currently available in the Kumon First Steps Workbooks series, and LET'S CUT PAPER is the 4th and final one. It is just wonderful, like the other 3 books: LET'S STICKER AND PASTE, LET'S COLOR, and LET'S FOLD. This book gives young children (recommended age 2 and up) a fun first experience handling scissors.

My son is 8 yrs. old and is a normal boy in every way, except like many children, was slower to develop some of his fine motor skills. He has loved using all of these first steps workbooks, along with the regular Kumon workbooks. He has gained much in his ability to cut carefully using the simple exercises in this book. Please be sure to give your child a GOOD pair of scissors with this book! Cheap and junky scissors will lead to the projects looking chewed, not cut. Do your child a favor and let his projects look beautiful by giving him a good pair of scissors. Fiskars for children, with blunt or pointed tips are very good. We use the Crayola child's scissors, with all metal blades (not plastic) and these cut extremely well too.

Now armed with a good pair of scissors, what will your child be cutting? Well, there are 39 small pages for him to cut, beginning with simple things like cut the whiskers on the cat, the dog, and the tiger. Project #4 is cutting the square paper in half on the thick grey line, and arranging the 2 pieces to make a picture of a car. #6 has you do this, but cutting the square on a diagonal, and arranging the 2 pieces to make a boat.#7 has the child make 3 cuts across the square, and tape the 3 cut pieces in order to make a rocket. Project #8 is the same, with 3 cuts making 4 pieces to tape together...it is a tug of war rope with animals!

I bought this book for my 4 year old who has been asking to use scissors for some time. I really felt she was too young to use them, but when I saw the book was recommended for ages 2 and up, I decided to let her try.

The book begins with very simple activities and slowly becomes more difficult. The illustrations are fun and colorful. There are instructions for parents that focus on positive reinforcement and ideas to keep your child interested when challenged. Within two weeks my child was cutting curves, sharp angles, difficult shapes and spirals. I was amazed! There is a certificate of achievement for the child when the book has been finished.

This is a great book to help your child learn to cut paper, and to build self confidence.

I bought my 3 year old all of the books in this series. They are great books: very colorful, durable, and educational. They have helpful hints for the parents which I find very useful. My son loves working in these books.

Format: Paperback
My son, age 2 years 2 months, loves this book. Like other reviewers, I feared he was too young to use scissors, but was swayed by the "ages 2 and up" on the cover. He had a hard time using the scissors at first, and I thought the book was progressing too quickly and he would not be able to do the next level of "project." However, it seems to be progressing at just the right speed, so he can learn the activity without getting bored. I am amazed by what my son is able to do each time he picks up this book. He is really into this book, spending up to 45 minutes intently trying to cut the paper. I even use it as a bribe "if you do x, we can play with the scissors book."

So far he has loved the "Let's Sticker and Paste" book as well. The "Let's Color" is not as interesting to him, and is easily replaced by a coloring book.

This is perfect for my five year old who is behind in his fine motor skills. He is getting the practice he needs while having fun with the colorful pictures and putting the puzzle pieces together.

I ordered a bunch of the Kumon books because I work full time and felt that I have not been working with my pre-schooler on skills her friends have been learning. I also wanted a set of organized activities I could just grab and go when we have time to fill because I don't have the time to be supermom organizing my own homemade activities and crafts.

So far this cutting book has been the favorite, although all the Kumon ones I ordered are 5 stars too. My daughter is addicted to this book and is always asking to work on her cutting book. Definitely follow the recommendations in the book such as to only do a couple pages at a time and leave your child wanting to do more. If you rush through the pages, you just waste the book and it is not as enriching. Take your time with each page; discuss and explain it. AND we also get some use and play value from the pages after the cutting is completed! Many of them have been cute little crafty things/animals that encourage imaginative play.

They have done a superb job of stepping up the skill level every 2-4 pages. I'm thrilled as we turn each page and see what is next. It's incredible quality throughout with the full color, slick pages and adorable drawings. And with almost all the pages we've done so far there is some additional skill-building activity after cutting - such as to match up the pieces to create a scene, fold the edges, tape pieces together.

The parent is supposed to cut each page from the book, but I've been letting my daughter do that for extra practice. I help her hold the page and book while she cuts it across.

I'm thrilled with how she has been developing her cutting skills and how much enthusiasm she has for it.
