This book will help your child become familiar with using a pencil. By following the colorful step by step exercises, your child will enjoy developing pencil control and be prepared to write letters and numbers. Ages 4 and up.

In the description it says it will help your child "be prepared to write letters and numbers." I thought it would have lines to follow and whatnot, but after flipping through the pages I saw mazes. It looked more like a book ok mazes. I guess the picture in front shows that, but I was hoping for more. I am dissapointed because I already bought a Kumon Maze book which she is halfway done with, so it will come in handy. So just know its like the maze book but with a different title.
I was really hoping for a workbook that goes over true writing skills that prepare one for Kindergarten. While I think mazes are fun and important for fine motor control, I did not expect that this book would be ALL mazes. And simple ones at that. My almost 4-y.o. child can do Kumon maze workbooks for 6-8 years so this was hardly fun and pretty boring for her. I think ages 2-3 is more accurate.
My grandson loves this. His teacher said at a parent teacher conference that he did not like using the pencil so I bought this book and can't get him to put it down. It's really helpful planing on purchase other books as well
When my friend told me about these workbooks, I was excited to try them during the summer but I wasn't sure how my 3 boys would react. From the get go they loved them! I tried to set aside a few times/week to work on a few pages and they always wanted to do more. Now that school is in full swing, my preschooler and kindergartener (1st grader not so much) still pick them up at random times and work on them. I put them in an accessible place, with pencils and kid scissors nearby and let them work on them. I try not to supervise too much so they make/correct mistakes and take ownership of their work/progress. I love these workbooks and plan to buy more for next summer. My preschooler even asked for more for Christmas
deadly claw
The description says there are different exercise to help develop pencil skills but the contents are all only mazes. Maze, maze, and more maze.

There is another workbook from Kumon that’s solely for mazes. Now I have too many mazes and my daughter is not even fond of mazes.

Bummy. I changed the rating from 2 to 3 stars, to be fair, Kumon has a good line of learning books and my daughter loves them.
My daughter breezed through this book and she's 4. Left her for about 30 minutes and she went through half the book. Mazes get progressively harder, as you get toward the back of the book. Great for pencil skills, but maybe start them at 3 and have them work on a page at a time.
We had our Daughter do these over the summer and she loves the Kumon workbooks. She would set there and do several pages without me having to make her.
Excellent! My twins really love working in these book.
