Reviews - What do customers think about Let's Fold! (Kumon First Steps Workbooks)?
Excellent teaching tool Jun 2, 2008
My 2-1/2 yr old daughter really enjoys her Kumon workbooks. She calls them "homework", and she has several workbooks: mazes, tracing, coloring - they are all great.
more simple fun for preschoolers Mar 1, 2008
The ideas are so simple, but my son loves the colorful pictures and the end results. They are a treat for him and he looks forward to his "school work."
Highly recommend Mar 31, 2007
I have a preschooler with fine motor delays and he HATES to do anything which requires use of his hands. I was told by his teachers that this will lead to issues in school when he is expected to write and participate in art projects. If he can't write, it will affect his academic future.
Therapy provided only so much help, as he was frustrated with the tasks. But then I learned about Kumon's excellent reputation for learning through their local tutoring center - I purchased all of the workbooks.
Because of my childs delays, this book was actually the most difficult for him. He doesn't understand how to fold paper in an orderly way. What helped was the folding lines he could see on the illustrations. He truly tried to fold it correctly so he could "see the boy cry, and then see him happy". It's a simple concept, but it's meant to develop skills while keeping the child interested.
If it's not fun or interesting to a child, they won't want to do it. Folding paper for a young child helps to develop fine motor skills, that will help them in all areas when they begin to write, button, zip etc.
My child is getting a lot of exposure to fine motor tasks with these workbooks, but is still having fun with them.
Not interesting enough for wee folks Mar 2, 2007
My three year old was just not interested in folding paper. I would recommend the Let's Sticker! or Let's Cut Paper! over this one.
great start Dec 12, 2006
my boys love the folding book - it's basic (and i mean BASIC) origami. but since they're not yet 2, they have a while before they can get through the book as the designs become progressively more intricate. very entertaining.
