My three old loves using scissors and this is perfect for her. The pages are interesting and a great pace for her.
A good starter for the work time for my 1st grader and my preschooler is gaining needed fine motor skills.
I highly recommend this book. Both my two and three yo are obsessed. They cut up the pictures and want to display it. Such a great way to practice scissor control!
Bought this one as a gift for my niece, she loves it and it has helped with her cutting skills so much. Definitely recommend.
These books are PERFECT for developing beginning cutting skills!
