My 3 year old son loves this workbook and asks to do it almost every day. I have a hard time keeping him to 2-3 pages each day - he'd sit and do the entire book if I let him! If I try to have him draw lines on paper, he loses interest quickly, but he loves drawing lines in this book to make a train get to the end of it's route or to show an ant how to get to his friend around several pieces of fruit. I can see a definite improvement in his pencil skills as a result of this book.
The only improvements I'd make is to have it bound with a spiral binding or to have the pages be designed to rip out. My son had trouble at first holding the book open and drawing at the same time. Other than that, the material itself was wonderful! I definitely recommend it!
I bought this book for my daughter when she was almost 3 but discovered she was not quite ready for it. She would follow the instructions sometimes, struggling to follow the paths, but many other times she was not interested in trying to follow the lines and would start scribbling on the pages, perhaps out of frustration that she was not quite ready for it. We continued to provide plain paper, coloring books, pens, pencils, markers, and crayons for her to work on her skills individually. Meanwhile we worked very slowly in the book only working in it every once in a while until recently (around 3 ½) when her interest and ability clicked with the book and now it is her second favorite "project book". (See the Kumon cutting book for the favorite!) I am very happy with the progressive nature of the book and even thought it took my child some time to work through the first half of the book, she is cruising along and we are only a couple of pages from the certificate of achievement at the end. I have the next books ready to go, Uppercase Letters, Number 1 - 30, and Mazes, and she was really excited when they were delivered. She can't wait to get her certificate and start in on the new ones.
Update 1/23/15: I still love this book. I have now bought and used it for everyone one of my 4 children over the years. It still remains the best book out there for teaching children to write.
But in the future, I'm sure we will make use of it.
It has 80 pages of activities printed on high quality paper and most of them are doable by a 2 years old, of course with adult supervision and help. The activities focus on following a path with a pencil which help the kids develop fine motor skills. There are easy ones like following a straight or close to straight line or more challenging ones like following a path with turns, curves and spirals (but not as complicated as mazes in which you need to choose between alternative paths).
I think 2-3 years olds would benefit the most from this book, anyone older may find it too easy. I am happy for the purchase
