About the Author

School Zone Publishing Company began as The School Zone Learning Center in 1972. The Learning Center was a retail teachers supply outlet, specializing in sales to teachers, with two stores in Grand Rapids, Michigan. About 1974, schools instituted changes in educational methods that affected the home and schools. Changes included introducing new teaching methods in math and English and eliminating workbooks provided on a shared basis for home use. With these changes, parents experienced difficulty finding educational material for use at home. Local parents turned to the Learning Centers, requesting workbooks and other at-home teaching aids. In response, the Centers formulated six workbooks and printed 1,000 copies of each. The books sold out in six months. An expanded workbook series was developed and received equally enthusiastic acceptance. School Zone Publishing Company was incorporated in 1979. A new line of workbooks had been written and illustrated by late 1979. In January 1980, the line was printed and School Zone began operations. Market response was extremely favorable. The product line has expanded yearly and currently includes over two hundred educational products.

I am a stay-at-home mom and I purchased this book for my 3 year old. What I enjoy most about this book is that it is simple to follow as an adult and gives clear and strait to the point directions for each activity. This is a great activity book for toddlers to learn how to use scissors properly and it is great for first time cutters. Also after cutting the shapes there are exercises that require them to match them up on the pages. One complaint about this book is that in the back of the book are where all the items you need to complete the exercises are located, you will have to cut up multiple exercises just to be able to do one. I wish that only one activity were on each page that way you do not have to practically cut up the entire book at once. Also another thing I did not like about this book is that it does not have the "tear-out" option for the pages, considering this is going to be a book that you would be require to remove the pages to complete the activity you would think they would at least provide "tear-out sheets". I had to remove the binding from this workbook and place each page in a document protector to make it simpler to use. The layout of this book could be improved. I feel that some parents enjoy this and some will not, but this book is very repetitious which in my opinion is a good thing because children do not learn in one sitting, things need to be repeated for the information to stick. Overall I think this is a great practice book for children and it is very colorful and gets their attention.

Great cutting book. I bought this for my 2 1/2 yr old as a first cutting book. We liked it so much we are now purchasing our second one. It is a great first cutting book. Most of the pages to cut are squares or triangles. Great for first time cutters. I believe only one page was cutting circles. It is also great because once they cut the shapes they have to match them up on the pages. For example cut out a piece of cheese and match it up with the mouse who eats cheese or how many fish do you see? Match it up with the numerical number you cut out. There are also pages of "Good Job" "excellent" stickers to put on the pages once they are finished. Huge hit. Older kids who want to practice cutting circles or more complicated shapes may be bored. But for a 2 1/2 year old it was a huge hit!

This book has some very small pictures for 4 year olds to cut. My son really doesn't care for it and he loves cutting activities. I prefer the kumon books. This book is made more cheaply, the colors are the only thing I liked.

This has been a fun book for my 4 year old. It has taught him how to use scissors in a fun way. He was able to do the book with ease and not much help from me. Which gave me a little more time to accomplish what I would like to while he was at work learning motor skills that are important in school.

I would recommend this book!

My 3.5 year old LOVES this book! This was her introduction to scissors and cutting, so I didn't have very high expectations. I was very pleasantly surprised that she could do it! The parts to cut are sorted by the page number they go with and all located in the back of the book. The pages are all perforated so they are easy to tear out if you have a few kids that want to work on it at the same time or you want to show off some skills on the fridge! The activities that go with gluing are pretty simple, I think a 5 year old would probably be bored. Matching colors, shapes, etc.

This was a fun activity for my 2.5 year old. She needed some assistance but we enjoyed doing it together. I'm giving it 3 stars because it doesn't really work on cutting skills except straight lines and one page with circles and one with rectangles. It does, however, expect the child to know or learn: telling time, basic addition, counting, categorization, rhyming, sequencing, matching by color or initial sound and other basic skills like puzzles.
Some of these skills are age appropriate for a child that is practicing cutting but some of them are clearly too advanced. I liked that it challenged her but when I bought a book about scissor skills I expected it to actually advance her scissor skills beyond cutting on a straight line. The Kumon cutting book does a better job of advancing cutting skills from straight to diagonal, zig zags, curves etc.

Some reviews said it was a little annoying to have all the cut out pieces in the back, but I didn't mind. It was clearly indicated and those pages tear out easily. I also liked all the stickers at the back (so did my daughter).

There aren't very many pages and it gets repetitious but it is a good book have if you have several books and you want to do a practice page a day. For a 3 year old, you will need to give a lot of assistance. But for a 5 year old it's a little boring. I think 4 is the perfect age here.

What I didn't like about this book, was that the parts to cut out, were placed in the back of the book. You have to basically cut apart a whole page, and leave in tact the page # at the bottom if you want to know where the cut outs belong. If I want my child to do only one page, I have to cut 3-4 pages worth of cut outs. I just feel the layout of this book could have been better 3/5 stars.
