    Good introduction to colors January 14, 2013
    Reviewer: scrapbooking mom  
    My daughter started using this book at about 2 1/2. We just did a couple pages at a time as her school while big brothers did their school. She is still working her way through the book at 3 1/2 (we don't do it everyday). Sometimes the large areas are too much to color to hold her interest and the pages are a bit slick for coloring boldly with crayons. However, I do like this series of workbooks for preschoolers and would buy more in the series. I think if the books were spiral bound they might be easier to use but that wouldn't keep me from buying it.

    Fun but ... May 31, 2012
    Reviewer: Tricia  
    My preschooler enjoys the simple, colorful activities in this book, although she often has questions about why she should do what the instructions tell her to. (For example, why color grass under the monkeys on swings? To make the activity less arbitrary, we decided that grass would keep them from hurting their feet.) In general, I don't think she actually gains much of value from this workbook, but she does enjoy it, so I give it 3 stars for that. For myself, I would rather I had spent the money on something else.

    I Can Color November 1, 2010
    Reviewer: Misty Marr from Buckeye, AZ United States  
    I Can Color is so much more than a coloring book!  It is excellent quality and the pages are thick and colorful.  There is a lot of instruction for teaching your child how to color, and the book is full of coloring activities.  I Can Color includes activities from the other books in the I Can Series, making it more versatile than some of the books. I did return the whole series, as I felt that I could teach the concept with less cost, and better utilize the money elsewhere, but if I had chosen to keep one of the books, it would have been this one.
