I Can Cut! helps children build hand strength and dexterity by teaching them to use scissors to cut lines, curves, and shapes. Children will create puppets, play games, and make puzzles while learning an essential skill. Seventy-five full-color cutting activities, plus fifteen bonus activities from the other books in the Big Skills for Little Hands series, ensure hours of productive learning.

    Good for teaching cutting June 22, 2014
    Reviewer: Sarah W.  
    Bought this about a year ago for my 3 year old. We are still working through it because he is a perfectionist and gets upset when he makes mistakes with this. I have yet to find a pair of scissors that he is comfortable with (we haven't figured out if he is left or right handed so that is making is challenging). I'm hoping to try again with him soon now that he has more skills. I would recommend starting with the Pasting book especially if you have a little perfectionist, its much more rewarding when they are first starting out. I do love the activities and how fun they each are and so does my son.

    Skip the toddler one, get this one! June 19, 2014
    Reviewer: Catherine E.  
    The toddler version of this is the same, just WAY fewer activities. Make the investment and get this one instead - more activities and the difficulty progression makes more sense. Perfect for a 3-4 year old (maybe 5 if they don't have much experience cutting). LOVED it and will buy again for each of my other kids when they're ready.

    Great for hand dexterity September 25, 2013
    Reviewer: mamaof4  
    We bought this for our 3 year old son and he loves it. We are only on activity # 13 and already he has had much improvement with his cutting skills. This is great for those needed fine motor skills. He loves to show daddy his "school". Every page is so different and colorful. The pages rip out as well which I love because we have had similar books that didn't have pages that could be ripped out first. It is a bit spendy but very worth it.

    Better than I hoped for! August 31, 2013
    Reviewer: Snickerslatte  
    This is my son's favorite part of our preschool time. I have to limit him to 1 activity a day. I was wondering if it would be worth the money for a workbook that can't be reused, but this is worth it. My 3 year old son's fine motor skills have really improved and each day is a new fun project, to show daddy when he gets home from work. I plan on buying more from this set as well as buying this book again in another year for my younger son. I don't have any negative comments about this book.

    Engaging Pages Build Fine Motor Skills June 6, 2012
    Reviewer: Amy B  
    We bought this book at the TImberdoodle booth at convention and my twins love it! Each activity included captures the imagination and draws the preschooler into the activity. We have cut the lion's hairy mane, cut legs for the caterpillar, hidden the tiger in the grass, fixed the dog's arms and legs so that he can walk and so on. Each page has a story, and it is written by your child. As you work with your child on scissor skills and build the muscles they need for handwriting, you have the chance to engage with your child and build their story-telling skills, another essential skill.
