About the Author
Roger Priddy left school at 16 with just one qualification―in art. He went to Berkshire College of Art and Design and trained as an illustrator. His first job in children's books was working with the publisher Peter Usborne, at Usborne Publishing, and then he worked with Peter Kindersley at Dorling Kindersley, where he spent 16 years. Priddy became Creative Director of DK's Children's Division and was Managing Director of the children's mass market publisher Funfax when it was acquired by DK.
In 2000, he created Priddy Books with John Sargent at St Martin's Press to create innovative and imaginative titles for children, from first books for babies through early reference titles for older children. Since then, over 30 million copies of Roger's 200 plus books have sold worldwide, with five of his books―My Big Animal, My Big Truck, Happy Baby Words, Happy Baby Colors and Puppy and Friends―each selling over one million copies. He is also the author of Big Board First 100 Words; Big Board Books Colors, ABC, Numbers; and Bright Baby Noisy Monsters. His creativity has been recognized with numerous industry awards. Priddy lives in London with his wife Zena and their four children.

I love the fact that you can easily wipe this clean. I use a damp paper towel to ensure it is completely clean. I always make sure to clean it after we use it. I recommend doing this so that it doesn't stain. There are so many different things for the kids to trace in this book! All sorts of lines and images. My son LOVES the dog and cat tracing! They have so many different books, I look forward to purchasing more. Now we can practice and make it fun! This is one purchase I am exceedingly happy about! I highly recommend this for your preschool aged child!
My 2 year old, who is fairly intelligent, doesn't really grasp the concept of following the dotted tracing lines, and instead prefers to 'color the kitty's eyes' or color in the pictures. My 3 year old loves it though, and immediately understood that we start our marker on the big purple dot, then follow the dotted lines. Within minutes she was doing all sorts of pen control exercises that I didn't know she could do! It really helped her learn the most comfortable way to hold the marker and be able to control it the most, which quickly led to her being able to write her whole name!!!
While my son isn't using the book for its sole purpose, he's still learning things, and I know he'll grow into it.
I've found that Expo low-odor dry erase markers work best with kids in these books, but make sure you erase the pages everyday!! We made the mistake of leaving the writing in the book for a couple days, and it stained the pages a bit.
