My two year old daughter loves the activities in this book. Of course, she is still too young to work on the activities herself, so I either sit down with her or supervise. There are 4 basic themes, i.e. letters, animals, time & numbers. The letters segment teaches kids how to trace and write the letters out, with each letter represented, and words for each letter [e.g. b for ball etc]. The colors are bright & the illustrations/pictures are vivid and fun to look at. The animals segment is really fun as kids have the options of tracing out animal shapes, counting them, identifying, matching, drawing, connect the dots etc. The time segment provides a variety of fun activities to teach/tell time & similarly for the numbers segment. What makes this a worthwhile buy is the variety of activities contained within it...there are so many fun ways to keep a child meaningfully oocupied, and the best part is that he/she will learn whilst having fun at the same time!

While I have only had this book for a day, so far I'm surprisingly impressed with it. The book itself is 11" high x 8 1/2" wide x 7/16" thick with a spiral binding that allows the book to be completely opened. The pages themselves are all heavy-weight and coated (including the insides of the front and back covers which are each labeled as a "Practice Page") for dry-erase marker use. The book I received came with one slightly thicker than usual black dry-erase marker tucked into the spiral binding itself and is recommended for ages 3 and up.

The book itself is broken into the following sections:
1) Letters: Goes through the entire alphabet from "a" to "z" with a half a page devoted to each. It starts off with a 1/2" example of how to write the capital version of the letter, followed by two dotted representations for a child to practice with, and ending with enough room for the child to practice approximately three more free-hand. The book then has the same for the corresponding small version of the letter. The remainder of the 1/2 page per letter has either two or three colorful pictures of something that has the letter in it (once again with dotted representations of the particular letter for the child to practice with) as well as the occasional "game" (such as "circle each letter b"). I like that the examples used don't always start with the letter being covered ("O" uses owl, orange, and spoon).

2) Animals: Has appealing pictures of various animals with dotted "drawings" for the child to connect to help them practice co-ordination. There are also various games requiring the child to do such things as following dotted swirls to "help" various animals get to food, counting various groups of animals, matching items, finishing drawings, connect the dots, and completing a maze. Oddly, at the end of this section is one page devoted to "Number practice" and two pages devoted to "Alphabet practice" with 3/4" examples of how to write each, followed by two dotted representations, and the entire remainder of the line for free-hand practice.

3) Time: Bright and appealing pages for the child to practice telling time. This has various approaches such as "What time is it?" where a time is given and the child has to draw the appropriate clock hands, and "One hour later" where it gives a time and the child is to draw where the clock hands would be an hour from the time stated..

4) Numbers: This section shows the child how to write each number from 1 to 10 (i.e. "1", "2") and well as spell each (i.e. "one", "two"). It also gives various opportunities for the child to count items, as well as provides games (such as "circle the things with two legs"). There is also a page devoted to 11 - 15, as well as another for 16 - 20, that just has basic representations of each number (such as "16 socks" with a picture of sixteen individual socks with a "=16" at the end).

Overall this book has a lot going for it. It is sturdy and very colorful and appealing. There are a number of extra activities throughout the book to reinforce the lessons for the child as well as to help keep them engaged. I have however noticed that the actual number section teaches how to write a slightly different version of the number "4" from the section in the "Animals" portion of the book, but overall I am very happy with this book so far and it is a great way for a child to practice without the wasted paper that would normally be involved.

I purchased this book to keep my 3 1/2 yr old occupied on a cross-country flight. The book is great and served its purpose, and even my 1 yr old loved looking at the pictures. However, my 3 yr old got a few marker stains on her shirt and they won't come out. The product could be improved if washable markers were provided.

This activity is full of fun and creative ways for my children to learn the alphabet, numbers, counting,and time. I cannot say enough about it. I purchased only one and wish I would have bought two. Both my 3 year old and 5 year old will sit down for hours with this book!

My daughter turned three last year. She is super active. but with this book, she has so much fun in sitting. It has all wonderful writing part, including numbers, alphabets, animals and clock. And it has free practice board. I want to recommand this for many preschool and pre-kinder kids.

My 3 year old daughter loves this book. As a teacher I love it too! Like other reviews states the marker that comes with it is not made to last, but the book is with the value even if it did not come with a marker.The pages wipe clean easily. The activites vary from simple mathematics: counting, shapes, number tracing, etc to complete the drawings of animals. My daughter loves to work on this independently.

My daughter is almost 3 1/2. She loves workbooks and flashcards (a bit odd I agree....).
I think we'll get a lot of use out of this. She's already used it a dozen times and she loved it.
She's just tracing the animals and shapes now and can do a few letters. My only concern is coming up with some games to make the letters more fun... just tracing letters alone won't hold her attention for more than a few letters.

One of my son's two most favorite books. He loves all the activites and since toodlers love repitition, he loves doing these activites over and over again. His ability to write numbers and letters, and his ability to read and spell simple words has improved so much. People cannot belive how advanced he is for a 2 yr-old.

My 3 year old loves this book. He does not have the coordination or patience to draw over the letters but he likes to draw over the animal pictures. He loves to scribble and clean it on his own.

The only thing that I didn't like were the size of the letters. They are too small for a toddler to process and draw on. Other than that there are tons of stuff to do in one single book - letters, numbers, time, math, drawings/shapes.

Love it & recommend it.

The book itself is pretty good. My son likes using it. The problem was with the cheap marker. We used it once, then the next day, went to use it again, and the marker didn't work. One day?!? That's ridiculous. It's easy enough to use another dry-erase marker, but the one it comes with should last longer than one use.
