   Perforated edges on the pages please!
My daughter really enjoys the preschool books, and I think it's great that they have pictures of animals. The boys really help her with her scissor work, they really help her, too. One only complaint I have is that the pages are extremely difficult to remove. Before an adult can give a book to a child, it must be cut away from the book. The book only provides about a half inch before the content of the page begins. It is therefore impossible to cut the line without cutting into the contents of the document. I had to tear up the entire book and separate all of the pages from the spine so I could remove them easily. It's a bit of a nuisance and unsightly, and disorganized, Garton said.
   My 3 year old loved this book
My 3 year old loved it. It progressed in difficulty and I liked the variety of the cutting projects, which resulted in some of them turning into finished products, said Gillian. It only gets one star because of the inconvenience of extracting the pages.
   Original, creative and fun
I have a 3.5 year old and I absolutely love this book. The exercises progress from simpler to more challenging helping the child build his or her confidence. However, a very young child would initially need help with some of the more difficult exercises, but there is sufficient repetition to make the new stick. What's even more important, the exercises are colorful and fun, and one can build great stories around each exercise sheet to keep the child motivated, Mrs. Ridgeway said. This set of exercises is by far the best I've found.
   Another excellent workbook!
The workbook helps kids learn how to cut and fold paper. Each page of this book is full of color and each story has a theme. They learn not only the skill of cutting a straight line, but also curves and diagonals that can be taped together for a project after cutting is done. Super Early Learning Adventures has helped over 10,000 children in the classroom.
The book was recommended to me by a friend who wanted to help my 4 year old twins with their small motor skills. Very nice book, said Pauley. My only complaint is that the pages themselves are not perforated, but that I must carefully tear them out.
   Kid loves, mom not so much
Even the lowliest children's workbook I've bought has the perforated pages. They could not possibly have tried it and approved it in good conscience, he said. I mean, maybe I'll try going after it with a razor blade and putting it all in a binder, but dang, I shouldn't have to do that.
   Great Book
The book was my 3 1/2 year old granddaughter's birthday present. This book is the perfect companion for children just learning to use scissors.
   Gimmicky for what it is
The workbook has 40 cutting projects, plus an interactive map. The curve starts with straight lines, then zig zag and curvy lines. Even a very small child of 3 will need more than this to master good scissor skills. I recommend this as one of many tools in your box to help kids learn how to cut. An old magazine for kids to cut would cost less than one penny to throw away.
   Use a box cutter to get pages out.
Just finished reading the book with my 3 year old. In fact, I think that Grace probably would have loved it more if it had been filmed in the studio. Yes, a perforated page would be helpful. It's just that the deal breaker was never in the first place. Simply cut the pages with a box cutter.
   Needs improvement
The book is a great idea, Rowling said. The pages are heavy stock card so they are easy to cut. The book advances from simple lines to more complex cutting by the end. Each page can be out of the reach of the child to allow the child to cut that page. However, as noted by many of the reviewers, the pages are not perforated so they are not easily removed from the spine of the book. The instructions tell parents to cut the pages out but anyone who uses scissors knows it's not possible to cut a book along a straight, rigid edge. It turned out that my book was a return based on smudges on the front cover, and the first few pages were slightly damaged.
