I reviewed Kumon's First Steps Series LET'S CUT PAPER, and that is the good FIRST book for cutting. Once your child has done that one, then there is this book with 40 wonderful, colorful pages to cut! Kumon recommends MY FIRST BOOK OF CUTTING for ages 3-4-5, but I can tell you it is great for an older child too. There are many children who are a bit delayed in developing such fine motor skills such as handling a pair of scissors. My son is 8 years old and loves this book. It is not babyish at all, is very fun and has given him much needed practice in cutting.
PLEASE!! Do your child a favor by giving him, along with this book, a GOOD pair of scissors! Cheap scissors abound for children, and if given those, their projects will looked chewed, and not cut. Both Fiskars and Crayola make very nice scissors for children. We have been using Crayola, with all metal blades, and get very good results.
Okay, what are the projects to cut in this book? Well,the first are simple, cutting vertically from the bottom of the page along thick grey lines...cut and stop at when you reach the fruit, the flag, or the building. The next ones are printed horizontally on the page, but still a child will no doubt hold the paper so they are cutting vertically. Project #6 is cutting along the teeth of 2 combs.Read more ›
My only complaint is that it is designed for right-handed cutters since the little arrows & scissors start from the right side of the page. My son is left-handed so I have him flip the paper over so he follows the arrows from left to right instead of vice versa.
My one and only complaint is that the pages are extremely difficult to remove from the book. The pages instruct that an adult should cut along the edge of the page to separate the page from the book before giving it to the child. Unfortunately, the book only provides about a half an inch before the content of the page begins. It is impossible to cut the line down the page without cutting into the contents of the page. I had to tear up the entire book and separate all of the pages from the spine of the book just so I could remove the pages easily. It is a bit of a nuisance and unsightly and disorganized.
This problem could have been easily remedied if they'd just perforated the edges of the paper or left plenty of room before beginning the content of the page.
Update on 12/16: you have to disassemble the book and break the spine to use the book per customer service. Maybe if I had known that initially that you have to tear apart the book to use it, I would not have rated it so poorly, but it seems the company should fix that by adding perforated pages. My one star rating stands!

My son gets very excited about the book. My only criticism is that to take the pages out, should be easier than cutting them out. Rather, perforated edges.Published 1 month ago by Jnfly
