  1. My son Billy loved MY 1 TO 5 ACTIVITY BOOK and MY A to G ACTIVITY BOOK. These were the first activity books he started and finished. He loves coloring and writing. He has learned our home address and how to spell our parents names. These books teaches a variety of concepts. We made a copy of his certificates and put them on the refrigerator.


  2. The My A to G Activity Book was my four-year old granddaughters first book. She loved it and enjoyed spending time with me as I helped her do the activities. This book was a great starting point. She asked me to take her to the library. I am buying My 1 to 5 Activity Book Friday.
