Book Description

Feb. 1 2004 Kumon's Practice Books
Drawing lines accurately can be a hard task for children. This entry-level book provides toddlers and older children with opportunities to learn to manipulate a pencil skillfully. Simple and fun drawing exercises start with vertical straight lines, and then gradually shift to more difficult lines, such as curves, zigzags, and diagonal lines, providing children with an ideal preparation for learning to write letters and numbers. Through the feel-good experience of tracing, a child's love of learning will blossom.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful quality - builds a great foundation Jan. 4 2006
By M. Beyer - Published on Amazon.com
I looked at many workbooks in the book store before settling on this one, and I'm glad I did! It starts out with basics - connecting pictures and drawing straight lines horizontally and vertically - using very cute, clear graphics. It then progresses to diagonal lines, curved lines, zig zags, more complex curves, lines that cross over each other, etc. In this way, it gradually builds writing skills in a way that is fun for children. I also love that the paper is thick and high quality, the colors are vibrant, and the accompanying pictures are detailed and well-done.

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Skill Builder Feb. 15 2006
By Syd - Published on Amazon.com
I recommend this book for anyone who would like to help their child develop pencil skills. Do not worry if your child does not immediately excel with this book, just remember all children develop differently and reach the point where they can follow instructions and do workbook skills at different times. Hold off for a while if needed and re-introduce once in a while until the child is ready. Once the child is ready - you will be surprised how interested in the book they become and how quickly their skills improve. I advise following the workbook instructions that you not let the child do more than 2 pages per session because if they are left wanted to do more they will eagerly come back to it the next time.

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 ) 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars My 26 month old loves this book!!!!!!! Aug. 10 2005
By T. Santilli - Published on Amazon.com
Every day my 2 year old says, "Book, book." We sit down and I show him how to hold the pencil, I steady his hand and he pulls the pencil in the proper direction (90% of the time). It's exciting for both of us. The pictures are beautiful and he loves looking at them. Also the pages are very thick, which keeps them from being easily destroyed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks great but not for 2 year old as they claim Aug. 21 2011
By Iryna Rudenko - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My daughter just turned 2 years old. I got her this one and "Lets sticker and paste". We've been having so much fun with Sticker and Paste book and she was doing a great job. But the tracing book is way too much for a 2 year old. She is just not ready to patiently draw a straight line from point A to point B while omitting the obstacles. Had to put it on the shelf for now :(
But in the future, I'm sure we will make use of it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay April 20 2009
By A. Brooks - Published on Amazon.com
My son is 4 years old and I purchased this book to help him with his handwritting. I think that this is a very good book for training, but he was really bored with is after a while, he was doing like ten pages at a time and looking at me like "Mom...why are you giving me this"! LOL I think it's more for the 2 or 3 years olds.
