Reviews - What do customers think about Richard Scarry's Getting Ready for School Workbook?

Decent supplementary workbook  Jun 18, 2003
This workbook has some good creative lessons. An example I haven't seen in other workbooks would be a page devoted to "left" and "right" - something many youngsters learn and forget. It's nice to see it practiced. If your preschooler enjoys workbooks (and many too, but hey, let them be a kid and don't force this on them!)

I only give it three stars since the pages are VERY thin and any child using a marker will have bleed thru to the other side. Some preschoolers dont write with enough pressure to use a crayon or pencil (something about holding the pencil just so). Anyway, a minor point, but irritating when you are actually using it.

Also, all the pages are in black and white, and not perforated. Try a Jumpstart workbook first and go to this if your preschooler runs thru it quickly.

Good workbook for a 3 year old  Feb 11, 2002
On my point of view this is a very good book for very young children, because it has them working on those basic skills that are so important (big/little and other opposites, telling a story describing its picture, tracing, drawing lines...). The only 'bad' point is that it only covers numbers up to 5 and it only covers a few letters from the alphabet.I would recommend it as the first one of your little child's workbooks.
Richard Scarry's Getting Ready for School Workbook  Apr 25, 2000
My child and I give this book 4 "PURPLE" crayons up (4 stars). The book includes exercises in the basic "3 R's"plus puzzles and coloring pages,which are very handy in preparing children for school. Lowly and Huckle help take the preschoolers smoothly through each lesson. My 3yr. old recognized the characters from TV. We both like the book's lesson format, which was different from your general activity books you find in stores. (Usually my preschooler will finish the 30 page books in one sitting.) This book has 128 pages. I only wish there was a note at the bottom of the pages explaining what skills are covered by each lesson. Oh, and perforated pages to make it easier to tear out the assignments.
