Kumon Cutting Skills - 2-Book Set
Learning to safely use a pair of scissors seems to universally bring extraordinary joy to young children. In Kumon’s two-book Let's Cut Paper series, your child will learn how to hold and control scissors, and will proceed from the simple one-stroke cuts of a dog’s whiskers to the more complicated curved humps on a camel’s back and the spiral of a chameleon's tail. Many pages offer helpful tips for the parents and all are sturdy enough to manage, but not so thick as to be difficult to cut.
From the Publisher:
Learning to safely use a pair of scissors is an important part of preparing for school and play activities. These workbooks are for children who have never used scissors before. Children will learn how to hold and control a pair of scissors, and will advance from simple one-stroke cuts all the way to cutting complicated curved and zig-zagged lines and shapes.

”Kumon Let’s Cut Paper is one of the best scissor skills book for toddlers and preschoolers. They’re so fun, they might even keep the kiddos from cutting little sister’s hair!”Read the Review
I have my young child working through this set to better help with fine motor control. He enjoys working on these. Simple, colorful, and fun for little ones.
As most children, my children love to cut. They cut all day. They enjoy these books! It's very clear which part to cut and where to stop. It's great for cutting skills as well as taking direction.
These books are PERFECT for developing beginning cutting skills!
Good book to build skills and very colorful and attractive to pre Ks but a little pricy for the fact we will have to throw it all away eventually.
These worked really well for practicing early cutting skills. Cute and not too difficult.
