Book Description

19 July 2010 I Can
Child-friendly ‘wipe-clean’ spreads allow children to recognise and practise writing first words. Each book features six scenes containing between four and six everyday words. The special pen and wipe-clean element allow children to first copy and then write each word, again and again. The colourful design treatment makes these interactive books highly appealing.

By Mark Loughridge VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is the ideal book for my daughter who is 5 and is learning to write her letters. There are 35 everyday 'school' type words, eg friend, chair, pencil, green, blue, book, window, apple, juice. On each double page there is a picture which is labeled with 5 words. Each word is shown, and repeated underneath in dots to trace over, with a larger dot to show where to start. Then there is a blank space below that again for the child to try it for themselves.

The last two pages are freestyle, 'write your favourite school words' and 'draw something in your school'.

The book has plastic wipe-clean pages and a thin cardboard cover. The pen supplied fits in a plastic pocket in the front cover. It writes nicely and has a felt 'rubber' on the end. If and when the pen dries out, a black felt tip and a tissue or baby wipe will do the job. In fact my 2 year old has invented a new use for the book - embellishing the drawings with coloured felt tips! At least we can wipe it out again.

My daughter has enjoyed copying the words in this book. It's good to see a child practising school work while thinking they're doing it for fun! If this book has a drawback it is that it will have a limited window of interest while writing is being mastered, but I don't see that as a major problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great learning tool for your pre-schooler 23 Nov 2010
First things first - my son loves this. And thats the key thing. Here is a learning tool, that is hard wearing, durable, reusable and educational which my son loves using.

The built in wiper on the top of the lid is so simple, but very clever as it allows the child to wipe away errors, clean the page and start all over again - all within their control.

Each page has a different scene from within school with words such as book, table, clock, chair with spaces for the child to make the letters following dots, and to write it free hand too. It not only helps them learn to write, but also recognise letters and learn words as their step towards reading.

The price is ridiculously cheap compared to so many of this type of learning books for children and I think one of the best.

I would highly recommend this book to any parent of a child around 2-4 and I will certainly be passing on my sons copies to friends with younger children - because it will still be in good enough condition to be used by someone else!

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 13 Sep 2010
By S. Hammond VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I ordered these for the use of my 4 year old who starts school in a couple of months. I thought they were a really good idea as your child can practice tracing letters and then wipe clean the pages. However i found that the words were printed too small for my child too confidently trace them.

My P1er loved this. But her tastes are fickle (are they all like that?) so it has not been used a great deal.

5.0 out of 5 stars utterly delightful though not built to last 20 Jan 2011
By Mr. Nadim Bakhshov VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
My four year old daughter, like many children of her age, loves to draw and make shapes and, sometimes, even write letters, albeit back to front and all over the place.

I love these books. There's a whole series of them. They introduce you to drawing and building up complex pictures by taking you (or rather, the child) through a series of simple steps.

I'm sure my daughter got better at drawing soon after playing with these books.

Yes, they do wipe clean but the pen runs out too quickly and other dry wipe pens have tended to leave a residue. All that said, it's an excellent idea.

4.0 out of 5 stars OK... 22 Dec 2010
By P. Keeling VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
An OK product, the pages are clearly laid out with basic words / structures to follow. We have had a few books like this to develop our daughter's writing.

Unlike other books there is a lack of 'smudginess' unlike other books which is a welcome plus.

Overall, a good starter... exactly what you need.

3.0 out of 5 stars Early learning letter practice 20 Dec 2010
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This comes with a pen whose markings can be wiped from the page, hence allowing you to practice writing simple words on a school theme with your child.
It's a series of double page cartoon scenes of school life e.g. lesson, lunch hall, school play, playground, with words relating to that theme. Each word has a join the dot version underneath it, allowing practice of the letter/word formation
It's colourful but the cartoon illustrations are garish and unimaginative. It's straightforward and does what it says on the tin, but there's much better early learning literacy books out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this book 16 Dec 2010
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The wipe clean pages in this book are a great idea...however watch out that your little one doesn't use a biro or permanent marker!
Full of everyday words and plenty of space for writing practice. I also have the number version of this book.
A great idea.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple idea - effective learning
Initially I was disappointed with this. The penholder was fiddly to open and as it sticks out of the front of the book it makes it difficult to write on the left hand pages. Read more
