So I recently bought a bunch of these books for my little over two year old to work on while I started working from home very part time. I needed something to keep him busy that requires minimal interaction from me and isn't just watching a movie. These work well for that. I should also add that we've been using Expo fine tipped dry erase markers and have had no problem cleaning them up with just a dry rag. One if the hardest things I had to decide between was which of these books to get, and since I'm really visual and more of a like to flip through the book first person, I figured I'd post the photos here to give you an idea of what you're getting with this one.

If you're just getting your kid into these kinds of activities and they need work on their fine motor skills and you only want one book - get this one (or the one that's a step up from this one for the next age group). I have several of these wipe clean books now, and this is the one that started it all. It's a large book with lots of activities and pages. It was a little more than the other ones, but it actually is the most comprehensive as it covers all of the alphabet (though the letters are kinda small, about the siza of a quarter, which might be too small for the littler kids), tons of stuff about clocks, drawing a animals, shape tracing and sorting and differentiation activities. Probably my son's favorite area right now is the counting activities and the little differention activities that are below them. I added other wipe clean books to our library just because I wanted the variety of activities to keep him busy at home while I work, car rides, restaurants, etc.
A great learning aid and what better can be if it is in form of a book.This book I purchased for my 2 1/2 year old daughter and she loves it.This book is divided into 4 sections 1) Letters
2) Animals
3) Time
4) Numbers
In letter section your little one can practice uppercase and lowercase letters. He/She can learn words not only starting with these letters like A is for Apple but also those words which has those letters in them like Hat.
There are also some exercises at the end of learning two letters each in uppercase and lowercase.
In the Animals sections the little one can trace over the outline to draw some nice pictures like cat, dog.There are also lots of exercises with animals like food trails, counting pets.
My daughter loves a lot the food trail exercise here.
The third section is for Time.This sections teaches about time in different ways.I think this section is for a bit older child between 3-4 years.
The last section is learning numbers in letters and numbers. It also has exercises and its fun to do it.
At the beginning and end of the book there is practice page where your little one can practice their learning.

This book wipes off so easily with a wet cloth so you can practice a lot on the same one.It is spiral bound so no worries of tearing it in middle and the pages are also sturdy.

The pen that comes with it dries up after a few uses but you can use crayons or washable markers and it serves the purpose.

Very good concept of learning for a child.
My 3 year old daughter loves this book. As a teacher I love it too! Like other reviews states the marker that comes with it is not made to last, but the book is with the value even if it did not come with a marker.The pages wipe clean easily. The activites vary from simple mathematics: counting, shapes, number tracing, etc to complete the drawings of animals. My daughter loves to work on this independently.
While I have only had this book for a day, so far I'm surprisingly impressed with it. The book itself is 11" high x 8 1/2" wide x 7/16" thick with a spiral binding that allows the book to be completely opened. The pages themselves are all heavy-weight and coated (including the insides of the front and back covers which are each labeled as a "Practice Page") for dry-erase marker use. The book I received came with one slightly thicker than usual black dry-erase marker tucked into the spiral binding itself and is recommended for ages 3 and up.

The book itself is broken into the following sections:
1) Letters: Goes through the entire alphabet from "a" to "z" with a half a page devoted to each. It starts off with a 1/2" example of how to write the capital version of the letter, followed by two dotted representations for a child to practice with, and ending with enough room for the child to practice approximately three more free-hand. The book then has the same for the corresponding small version of the letter. The remainder of the 1/2 page per letter has either two or three colorful pictures of something that has the letter in it (once again with dotted representations of the particular letter for the child to practice with) as well as the occasional "game" (such as "circle each letter b"). I like that the examples used don't always start with the letter being covered ("O" uses owl, orange, and spoon).

2) Animals: Has appealing pictures of various animals with dotted "drawings" for the child to connect to help them practice co-ordination. There are also various games requiring the child to do such things as following dotted swirls to "help" various animals get to food, counting various groups of animals, matching items, finishing drawings, connect the dots, and completing a maze. Oddly, at the end of this section is one page devoted to "Number practice" and two pages devoted to "Alphabet practice" with 3/4" examples of how to write each, followed by two dotted representations, and the entire remainder of the line for free-hand practice.

3) Time: Bright and appealing pages for the child to practice telling time. This has various approaches such as "What time is it?" where a time is given and the child has to draw the appropriate clock hands, and "One hour later" where it gives a time and the child is to draw where the clock hands would be an hour from the time stated..

4) Numbers: This section shows the child how to write each number from 1 to 10 (i.e. "1", "2") and well as spell each (i.e. "one", "two"). It also gives various opportunities for the child to count items, as well as provides games (such as "circle the things with two legs"). There is also a page devoted to 11 - 15, as well as another for 16 - 20, that just has basic representations of each number (such as "16 socks" with a picture of sixteen individual socks with a "=16" at the end).

Overall this book has a lot going for it. It is sturdy and very colorful and appealing. There are a number of extra activities throughout the book to reinforce the lessons for the child as well as to help keep them engaged. I have however noticed that the actual number section teaches how to write a slightly different version of the number "4" from the section in the "Animals" portion of the book, but overall I am very happy with this book so far and it is a great way for a child to practice without the wasted paper that would normally be involved.
