In this particular workbook, the focus is on a good variety of odds and ends for little ones. There's sticker pages, tracing, pointing at objects to name them, learning body parts, cutting and pasting, folding, matching, shapes, etc. While you can always add to the pages to teach numbers and letters, this workbook really doesn't deal with the basics in that range, though you do get 3 sheets for counting 1-3. You DO get a nice mix of other types of basics for the 2-4 age range, though.
Each page gets a little sticker that you can put in a "reward" spot when it is finished. There's also stickers that have assigned page numbers. For example, there are 4 insect stickers that your child can put on a page with a log. I love that there's a dry erase page in the back of the book, too. (The workbook does NOT come with a marker for this.) It can be reused. In this workbook, your child can draw eyes for a bear and mouse.
Overall, this is an awesome workbook for young little ones! It is precious and lots of fun.
First, we started off on a positive note because he loves stickers. When he opened the book and saw the stickers he laughed out loud. I purchased the 2-4 book and since he is an older three, we did the finger tracing exercises with a crayon and he picked his own reward sticker each page. The reward stickers are on the first page of the book and as he progressed, finding the reward, finding his current exercise, then putting the sticker in the correct spot became another side game.
Second, did I mention he loves this book? He carries it around with him in his backpack with crayons and pencils. He completed 17 pages the first day and another 15 the next. I've had to distract him so he wouldn't run out of pages before the next one comes.
Third, I appreciate the graphics, attention to diversity, notes to parents, and the over all thought put into this book.
Highly recommend this series to all who have preschool aged children in their lives.
However, the book is far from perfect. First, it is way too short compared to others workbooks that I own - I think more repetition is what builds long term memory. Second, some of the projects wold work better if removed from the workbook, especially if you are teaching your child to cut or fold, but the pages do not tear out - there are no perforations and the binding is firmly holding the page in place. Third, the instructions expect the parents to do all the cutting, but I think the book should have been designed so the kids could do the cutting for themselves. Lastly, the book is not re-usable. Once the stickers are on the page, or the page is colored, or the page is cut/folded, then it will need replaced for the next child.
Overall, its a good buy if you are dealing with a 24-30 month toddler (and maybe even younger kids).... but expect this to only be an introduction NOT complete curriculum.
