"I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book."
Summary: Kids can create their own Snickerdoodle™ adventures and color pictures of some of the key characters. This is a workbook/coloring book for kids.
Type of Reading: playtime reading, interactive reading
Recommended Age: read together: 3 to 7; read yourself: 6 to 9
Interest Level: 3 to 8
Age of Child: Started reading with 4-year-old child. Still reading with child now 7 years old.
Young Reader Reaction: For months now, our preschooler has pulled this from her 'arts and crafts' drawer to color the pictures in the notebook. S/He hasn't taken advantage of opportunities to draw pictures from scratch, though.
Adult Reader Reaction: This is a nice complement to the stories. You need to have the stories first for this to be of value.
Pros: The book makes the stories more meaningful for kids and engages them in imaginative, independent play. It's a nice way to get the kids engaged when you want quiet time (like fixing dinner).
Borrow or Buy: Buy, but not unless you've gotten at least one other Snickerdoodle!™ book.
