Fantastic activity book, definitely recommend

Fantastic activity book by Melissa & Doug. Not only that it gives you an opportunity to do something fun with your child (unless they want to do everything by themselves which is an additional bonus) but it helps your preschooler (in my case anyway) to practice/develop their fine-motor skills, hand-eye coordination, oddly enough patience and have fun in the process. I saw a few reviews where people complain about activity book being short lasting as once they cut everything that's it. Not sure that's a valid comment because you can always scan/copy all the pages and save them for later use which is what I have done. That way you can do this activity on numerous occasions or at least until your child gets really bored with it. My daughter and I spent two hours on the first day doing cutting, gluing and creating pictures from the cut parts to fit them into a story that we decided to pursue and we were still left with many unused pages, not to mention the scanned copies saved for later use.
Also, the book comes with the safety scissors. My daughter prefers using the normal kids scissors (for a lack of a better word) but we tried the safety ones as well and they work great. Please note that if your child does not know proper cutting technique she/he might struggle with these.
5 stars for this activity book without hesitation!
