PRODUCT: Usborne - The BIG Activity Book (www.usborne.com )Usborne - The Big Activity Book

DESCRIPTION: A 192-page paperback book of write-in puzzles and activities for young children, with 8 pages of stickers included. Size of book is 276mm x 216mm. Suitable for children aged 6 years upwards and aimed at Key Stage 1/2.

GOOD POINTS: The BIG Activity Book is yet another perfect item for children to take on their hols whether at home or abroad. The book is filled with fun problem-solving exercises, pictures to colour, games to play with friends, as well as things to make which are all geared towards the recommended age range.

The book contains a huge number of activities to entertain both boys and girls, spread over both single and double pages, and covering a wide variety including, among other things, dot-to-dot, spot-the-difference and mazes, as well as matching and pairing, drawing and colouring, and counting and finding exercises (Answers to all exercises and activities are usefully provided at the back of the book). Of particular note was facts and tips that are dotted throughout the book that encompass fun facts about everything from avoiding shark attacks to making your own salsa dip!

What's more, the book comes with eight pages of stickers (located in the centre), which tie in to several different activities within the book, and which, for ease of finding and using, are grouped under the pages to which they relate. We particularly enjoyed the spooky house and battlefield sticker scenes!

The book utilises fun colours and illustrations to engage young children, and provides simple instructions to guide your child through the activities in an easy-to-follow way....in our opinion, this book provides a great value-for-money purchase for fully entertaining, stimulating (and distracting) children during journeys, holidays and rainy days.

BAD POINTS: Not really a bad point, but there is so much to do in the book that an index might help children to return to pages that they were most interested in.
