Kumon Folding Books, Set of 2
What a unique, but very Japanese, method to develop children's fine motor and focus skills. These books of folding paper crafts incrementally increase the number of folding lines, developing the child's ability to concentrate and be motivated by requiring attainable goals. I'm not thrilled with the occasional genie or witch-type project, but you can easily rip out and discard them. Two 5 7/8" x 8 1/4;" paperback books, 40 pages each. Ages two and up.

About Kumon:
Over 20 years ago, when our family began this delightful home school adventure, workbooks for toddlers and preschoolers were hard to find. But that was just as well because the ones that were available were inane, insipid or intolerable.

Just What You've Been Looking For
Workbooks are not appropriate for all young children; many are simply not ready for the fine motor skills that are necessary. Let those children continue to learn at their God-ordained pace and in a way that encourages a love of learning. But when your children are ready to move to focused learning, reach for Kumon Workbooks. The captivating illustrations are child-friendly and the scope and sequence are just what educating parents have been looking for.

Master Fundamental Skills
Kumon centers have been helping children master fundamental skills for over 50 years. Originating in Japan, they have excelled in their primary emphasis of math and reading instruction. With the exception of a page or two of nonsense, these are outstanding books, worthy of any child's time and effort. The skills taught are essential and appropriate, and their presentation can entice even the most hesitant learner. The assignments are short; each is slightly more challenging than the last so that your child progresses at a gradual, comfortable pace.

  • Let's Fold

    Kumon Folding Books Review
    "...Each page tells a little story that engages kidsí narrations skills and gets them thinking. This means that this workbook is actually not a great quiet time activity, but it does make for excellent one-on-one parent-child time...These didnít turn out to be the best choice for their intended quiet time use, but my kids really do enjoy them..."

    Very fun - but needs rationing April 10, 2014
    Reviewer: MaryAnne Mamasmilesblog  
    My three-now-four-year-old daughter LOVES these. They are very quick and easy to cut out and put together, so you do need to ration how many your child has access to at a time particularly if you want them to interact with what they make before moving on to the next folding project. I would like these to have a coloring or drawing element to prolong the activity.

    So fun September 18, 2012
    Reviewer: Mel  
    My four year old loves these books. First of all, they have totally helped with her hand/eye coordination as she learns to fold the papers on the lines. But each picture is fun, and she loves seeing how it looks once she's done folding. She would do them all in one day if I would let her, but I have held her off to doing one a day after her other school work is done.

    Really enjoy these August 8, 2012
    Reviewer: 2nd generation homeschool mom  
    We have really enjoyed this set of workbooks. These are a little simple but my 5 yr old still enjoys them from time to time. My 3 yr old however, could do these all day! She still needs close help to get things folded on the correct lines but, when completed and folded correctly, each work page forms a new or surprise image. I like the vast selection of images as they are not things in my 3 yr old's everyday vocabulary and they open discussion on new subjects while we are folding.

    My 4 and 7 year old both love the Kumon workbooks! October 31, 2008
    Reviewer: Amber E. from Dubuque, Iowa  
    I have two children, a 7 year old girl & a 4 year old boy.  They both love the Kumon workbooks.  I have to stop by 4 year from trying to finish an entire book in 1 evening.  He loves the cutting books best and especially loves receiving this certificate at the end.  The books for my 7 year old are very good too.  We have enjoyed the money series along with the crafts.  We enjoy going through the books together.  My 7 year old enjoys helping her younger brother complete books she has already completed.  The books also use a very nice paper and are bright and colorful.

    Excellent October 30, 2008
    Reviewer: Kimberly G. from Clinton Twp, MI  
    I have found the Kumon series of workbooks to be useful for all of my children who have used them.  The books dealing with fine motor skills are excellent; some of the pages can be done by young children with practically no assistance (such as in the cutting, tracing, and maze books), while others need a bit of direction from a sibling or parent (such as folding and crafts).  I have mixed feelings about some of the math skills workbooks:  The money workbooks are quite good and have some variety in the pages, but I think the time books are somewhat tedious and aren't as effective.  The number workbooks have some pages that involve a lot of writing which my children found boring and tiresome, but are still useful overall.
