Great activity with kids. Works on counting, number recognition & fine motor skills. Wasn't too hard for a 3 year old & 6 year olds really like it too. They added the difficulty of patterns to reach the right number/pipe cleaner.
I do think it is sad that we need to have books in our society for children to like who they are. Although I am glad that these are being written! Some of these books inspire courage, dealing with bullying, race, diversity, and self esteem.
GREAT environmental print!! And great family involvement. Make an alphabet book with your little ones by cutting out pics from magazines and having them pick which pages they go on. Great use for old magazines you haven't thrown out yet!
