Coloring exercises for young children are often too complicated. This book begins with a simple skill – having a child scribble on a picture randomly. As children progress through the book, they slowly learn to color within designated lines. Using crayons is an important precursor to learning to write with a pencil.

A very child friendly introduction to coloringI recently discovered the Kumon books and I am super pleased with them.I will be reviewing all those I have so it will help other parents get a better idea of what’s inside. The LET’S COLOR book is very nice and is part of the Kumon First Steps series for ages 2 and up. I must say that this book isn’t for the very young only. My son is 8, and is a very normal child in every way, yet like some children, has not been very quick to develop fine motor skills for writing, holding a pencil, cutting, etc. He has enjoyed all his Kumon books very much, and they are not babyish. LET’S COLOR is a very nice book for children who would be overwhelmed by a whole uncolored page being placed in front of them to “finish”. I like that most of each page in LET’S COLOR is colored already and is very colorful; only a white circle, square, triangle (nice for teaching shapes along the way) is left blank for the child to color in. My son is very pleased with just a small bit of coloring to finish the picture. He especially loves when his colored pencil ( I recommend Prismacolors over crayons) matches almost exactly with the color of the object and when finished, you can’t easily see where he did the coloring. Later pages have you color 2 or 3 parts of the picture, such as blue, green, and yellow circles on the beach ball, or 3 different colored balloons, or the yolk of the egg. Then the last few pages are having the child color the 2 flowers, the mane of the lion, the icing and candles on a birthday cake, or different parts of a clown. Even these pages with more white areas to color, are not overwhelming to a child, as the full picture is only about 8 inches square. My son enjoyed the first “scribble” pages, where you drew hair on a boy, spaghetti on a plate, sprinkles on the ice cream, water squrting out of the garden hose onto the children, etc. He has enjoyed coloring in this book as we have our read aloud time in the evening. Kumon uses high quality heavy paper, and the coloring pages are printed on one side only. I highly recommend it to any parent of young children, and would make a nice little gift with a new box of colored pencils or crayons. These are attractive when finished to give to grandma and grandpa to hang on their refrigerator. I really think you and your child will have fun with this book.
Perfect for 2-year-olds!Anyone with a 2-year-old knows that (most of the time) they have extremely short attention spans. With my son starting preschool this fall, I wanted to encourage pre-writing skills and help him learn to hold a crayon/pencil/marker properly. (He currently still uses a fist at almost 3 years old). My problem? He’s just not into most coloring books. He’ll make a couple scribbles and run off to play with his trucks. This book was bought in addition to several other fine motor activities I have lined up (including many that did NOT include writing tools like crayons and pencils). This is the perfect supplement to activities like “writing” with your finger in a tray of sand or rice, lacing buttons or beads, etc. The book is small and the pages are easily removable, and the best part is it’s not filled black and white line drawings! The pages teach coloring skills progressively, allowing children to scribble “ketchup” on an omelet, “hair” on a little boy’s head and “confetti” coming from a party popper. As they gain more control over their crayons (which has happened even more through fine motor activities for my boy, as mentioned previously), children are encouraged to fill in a blank circle in the middle of a tomato or lemon. The book gives excellent tips for parents both at the beginning of the book and specific to the activity on each page. If you’re looking for preschool prep, look no further than this colorful book. I recommend all the Kumon activity books I have purchased thus far!
Great!! But needs a tiny improvementI really like this book! My daughter isn’t crazy about coloring like my oldest was. I love the PAPER QUALITY! She can really push hard and not tear the paper! I like the fact that she’s just coloring an element of the picture and not the whole thing. Ie: theres a child with an emoty plate thats all colored and she needs to draw in the spaghetti, a person with no hair-she puts hair on him. Its more fun for her this way. Not as intimidating at all and now she looks forward to it. (Which was the goal) so why 4 stars instead of 5? The pages are one sided. I feel like its such a waste of space! I realize that its a “pad” coloring book. But It wouldve been nice to just flip the pad in the oppisite direction to continue. We really love this book and at the rate shes going i’ll be done within 2 weeks! So those empty spaces really bothered me. If i could’ve given it 4.5 stars i would have, but thats not an option, and those empty spots need to be addressed. So yes another WONDERFUL Kumon book. But it needs an adjustment. When a mom is spending more than five dollars on a coloring book, please make it worth her while and fill each page.
Great Concept, Bad Follow-ThruI love the idea of this book! It has great activities to start little ones on their way to coloring, draw, and writing for preschool and beyond. For example, one page tells you take the black crayon and draw hair on the little boy. Another tells you to take the red crayon and draw ketchup (it was by the way Heinz in my house) on the omelet. Yet another page tells you take several different crayons and draw sprinkles on the ice cream. All great ways to get a toddler drawing and used to his grip and start thinking about colors.The problem that I have with this workbook is that the book is way too small for a toddler! Everything is tiny! Including the print for grown-ups to read the directions. Toddlers need big, wide, open spaces on paper to draw. They are not precise little creatures, thus, the purpose of this book. In addition the binding on the book makes it hard for it to stay open, so I ripped the pages out for my son to draw on. However, the pages are perforated and the paper is pretty thick so it is hard to rip out without ripping large portions of page.Overall, I love the concept. My son does not go to daycare (on purpose, my choice) so I pretty much “homeschool” him until he goes to preschool this fall. Therefore, I like additional, affordable tools to help in getting him ready for preschool. However, what this book promises, it fails to deliver by failing to remember that their target audience are 2, 3, & 4 year olds!
age-appropriate book..Our 2 yr old though cannot hold colors as expected for his age , still loves each page and tries his best when I try to explain what is happening and we needs to be done by him..would highly recommend this book before starting any black and white colorbook which overwhelms the kids ..
Not your average coloring book!I have a very active 2 year old and I was looking for workbooks that were both fun and educational. The pictures in this book are cute and colorful. I love that the illustrations of the children are very diverse. My child actually loves to sit down to do this workbook and many of the other Kumon books in this series. Getting a 2 year old to sit and color for 5 minutes is no small feat. The beginning pages are designed to help the child get used to holding crayons and scribbling.( for example he/she can draw spaghetti on a child’s plate) By the end of the book, (about 38-40 sheets total) the colorful pictures have a few white areas that are left for the child to fill in. (for example, a bunch of purple grapes with one white circle or a birthday cake with white candles and a strip of icing).This book is helpful for teaching toddlers how to hold a crayon and how to color. The paper is good quality. This is much better than a standard coloring book. We enjoyed this book with the “So Big” Crayola crayons.
Great Learning Activity BookI love this book and so does my, just turned 3, son. The pages move from scribbles to coloring things in. Not only does it help learning how to color, it teaches colors and following directions.The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because it came with the first page colored already (not as an example, with crayon).

Kumon books are great; this one starts good but is a little basicBought the Color, Cut, and Paste for my son when he was two. This is probably the most basic of the three, and he has enjoyed it. The Kumon books are great because they progressively move into more difficult activities that are well-planned. The paper quality is high, and the activities are interesting – my son is always asking if he can work on his workbooks!This particular book was fun for a while, but doesn’t progress as fast as I think it could, so my son did grow board of it by age three. It’s a good book for the younger crowd and to mix in an easy activity with an activity that might be a bit more challenging (like cutting). Definitely recommended, but gave it four stars only because it’s our least favorite of the series.
Great Way to Teach Your Toddler to Color!I work as a kindergarten teacher and spend a lot of time at the beginning of the year helping students develop their fine motor skills. One of the best ways to work on these skills is to engage children with coloring. When I saw the beginner Kumon books, I immediately wanted to try them with my 2 1/2 yr old son, and I’m so glad I made the purchase. He absolutely LOVES these books! They are very colorful, the illustrations are great, and the directions are very specific. For example, one his favorites was to use a blue crayon to draw rain coming from the clouds. The books gradually become more difficult, and now he has to fill in a white area with a specific color. I tell him that we are working on “school” and he loves it! Because of the reasonable price, I have also bought these for his friends for birthday gifts as well! 🙂
easy for ToddlerMy son is 2 and half years old and he likes this book very much. He draws for a while every day. At the same time, I can teach him to learn colors through this book.
Great for young learnersI have been buying kumon work books for many years now. We use them for all our kids, aging from 10 all the way down to two.I love these beginner books for little ones.We home school and the youngest one likes to be included in school. These book are her “school books”, I pull it out during school and she will sit quietly and do her coloring while we do classes.It is a great help and is helping her with early learning. Win, win!
Good but goes really quick.My 3.5 years old girl liked it. It goes really quicky and she finished in 2 days (probably 45 mins x 2), and requested yo do more. Good pratice for drawing/coloring.
Fun with MarkersMy 3 year-old was able to color well when she wanted to. The problem was that she usually didn’t want to. She usually just wanted to scribble and finish her pictures as quickly as possible. This book actually helped her focus a bit better and take more time with her work. I think it also helped that the paper quality was so high that we were able to use her markers to do the exercises. Obviously, with most coloring books, the markers bleed through the paper so badly you ruin the following pictures. There would occasionally be a dot or two on the following page when my daughter really got carried away with coloring a particular spot.

Awesome for teaching colors for littles!This is amazing! Perfect for littles starting to recognize colors and love to color. It starts with directed scribbles and then gradually moves to teaching them different strokes. The pictures are fun and kid friendly in full color. For example there’s a picture of a dinner plate and the kid is supposed to color scribbles for spaghetti.
Amazon Customer –
GoodI was expecting a bigger book (like a regular sized coloring book) but do like that there’s little samples at the top of each page showing what the finished product should look like. I think this will help my son who seems to not have grasped the concept of staying in the lines. I’m hoping that having him only color in the small sections will help him develop the fine motor skills needed and take away the need for him to fill the page with color.
Charlene Smith –
but needed the practice of holding a crayon so I tried this book and it was fantastic. He did the entire book in 2 daysMy preschooler was not a colorer, but needed the practice of holding a crayon so I tried this book and it was fantastic. He did the entire book in 2 days. The small amounts were just right for him. He was so proud when he’d finished the whole thing. I have the next book on order.If you have a young child who is reluctant to use any writing utensil, but needs the practice, I’d highly recommend. If you already have a child who likes to color, then they’d probably find this too simple and boring.
R. Robinson –
Good to purchase for younger kidsMy daughter is really loving this book! She loves being able to figure out what color she needs and being able to complete each paper herself. Since the back is blank, after she completes a page she will draw a picture on the back 🙂 I like it too and am happy with the purchase.
Carolyn R. –
Great for toddlers.Great little work book for a toddler, the pages are very good quality.
Love Prime –
lets colorMy two and a half year old loved these, she did need my help to confirm to her the colors chose that were asked for in the pictures, and I would explain what they wanted (like add hair, or draw the water raining) but once she realized there were little example pictures she wouldn’t need me as much, the pictures are adorable, such creative ways to help them, I only wish there was more (than more)!
just OKI got this for my just turned 3 year old for “school”. Bought it with the rest of the books in the series and they are just OK. The sticker book only has stickers for the first few pages, the cutting book takes a ton of assistance and the coloring book is just ok- just a small piece to color on each page. I have found kumon books very helpful for my bigger kids, but these were far too young for my child. They are very, very, very beginner books.
Great for kids who don’t like to colorNeither of my kids like to sit down and color very much but I know it’s a skill that is important for them to learn. I love these books that don’t require them to color the entire page but just a small area. They get a feeling of accomplishment and enjoy sitting and doing a couple of pages at a time – which is a small miracle for my two active kids!!
A. Walsh –
Cute and usefulThis a cute book and it is nice to give some short easy but constructive exercises. I tear out the page and we do the exercise and then we use the back for free drawing.
great bonus that there is a certificate of achievement at …Introduced Let’s Color book to our children at age 2 in our homeschool curriculum. This workbook taught our children how to color within the lines. Also, great bonus that there is a certificate of achievement at the end of the book. I always remove the certificates from the workbooks before letting the kids start “working”.
Great product to keep the kids busyGreat product to keep the kids busy. As with Kumon workbooks, the instructions are provided so that teacher/ mom/ caregiver can effectively use the workbook. I cannot comment on the price as I don’t know what they sell for at the Kumon centers.
Great for young kidsI love these books for my 2 and 3-year-olds. It’s nothing that you can’t reproduce on your own, but for the time it saves it is well worth the money. The kids love them and ask to do them all the time. It’ a fun way to encourage development if those fine motor skills

Perfect for first learning!This book was an awesome starter for learning to color/art. Each page is designed to get kids scribbling and used to the idea of using certain colors for certain things. My 3 year old loves doing the worksheets in this book.
a very small coloring bookdisappointed in price for this thin coloring book. Just expected more for my money
Christine Wesley –
Wonderful first coloring book.This is a great first coloring book. Helps children to gain coordination and confidence. It also gets progressively more difficult. It starts out with some very easy exercises that are basically just scribbling and then becomes more focused as you go through the book.
Great starting books!Love these, and so does my two year old. The worksheets get progressively harder, but not too hard. I purchased these in hopes to work on my son’s fine motor skills and for practice in following directions. They are great. Everyday he wants to do more “worksheets!”

Love this!I love these workbooks. Not only are they bright and engaging for my toddler, it’s teaching him how to color and it’s not overwhelming. This is a must have if you pre-school at home or you just want something extra to do with your little one.
Doesn’t meet my needsFirst of all this product is small. It is the size of a small book approximately 5 x7. My 2 year old was also not interested in the book. One of the first exercises shows a person pouring ketchup. Your child is supposed to color ketchup over the bun. Since the pages are already colored, I think my toddler didn’t feel the need to color it. I thought this would be an 8 by 11 book similar to previous Kumon books, and I expected a lot more coloring pages. I was not impressed with the book overall.
Our son loves kumon books and this is another gem …Our son loves kumon books and this is another gem. He is generally not interested in coloring but this is the only book that holds him to do more.

Great improvement.We’ve seen improvement in our daughter’s ability to use a crayon or colored pencil with the commencement of using these Kumon books. She’s 2.5 years old, this series is definitely recommended, and much more affordable than Kumon classes.

GreatGrandson loves to color and this keeps him off the walls. 🙂 He enjoys this very much.
come on KumonI was a bit disappointed in the size of this product. I expected it to be the average size of a child’s workbook, but instead it’s the size of a composition notebook–pay attention to the details!
Five Starsgreat early learning books.
Fun Toddler ActivityMy almost two year old enjoyed this book a lot. It was a great activity for her to practice a correct grip and fine motor control.
Not what expectedMore of a coloring activity book than a coloring book. Not something my 2 year old can really understand.
GoodMy niece enjoy it. She color everything. I don’t think she got the concept but she enjoy it. It’s good for children to learn how to color inside. It’s a cute idea.
Fantastic purchase! Gets harder graduallyMy child is very resistant to coloring and loves this so far. Fantastic purchase! Gets harder gradually.

Good for disabled childrenMy 40 month old son was born with birth defects on his hands. The few fingers he has are very short and his muscles are a little weak. This book offers him a challenging and fun way to work on his fine motor skills. This workbook is well made with thick paper and a lot of colors. You cut off about 2/3 of the page and give it to your child and encourage him to color in the dot with a matching color on some of the pages. This is encouraging to small children so they don’t have to fill in an entire page themselves. The last page is a write on wipe off page! The only drawback is that $5.95 for a small workbook is rather pricey to me.
Five StarsGreat for my special needs students!
Step by Step Guide and Fun for ChildrenI’ve used this book on all of my four children and it’s great! The pluses are the thick paper, bold lines, and travel/compact size. I also have appreciated how they are smaller pages that children and complete faster as opposed to larger sheets with larger surface areas to cover. It also is a great introduction to colors with little information on each page that children can absorb. It takes things step by step and makes it very easy for a parent to facilitate. I would highly recommend.
Alice F –
Good first coloring bookWhat I like:- small book, so easy to take with us (we like it to take to restaurants, as we don’t allow electronics at the table)- teaches colors- teaches how to color “within the lines”- nice learning curve – the book gets harder as you work your way through it- small areas to color, so even a child who’s not all that interested in coloring (or in sitting down, for that matter) can handle it- the illustrations are cute and summarized with one word above them, good for early reading- thick pages- useful notes for parents
Five StarsThis has bright, engaging pictures that just need to be “finished.” My daughter really enjoys this series.
Three StarsMy 2 years old daughter doesn’t like to draw what the task says, she is doing her own drawing.
I fell in love with the idea of the book after seeing the …Not all of the pages are very interactive. I fell in love with the idea of the book after seeing the spaghetti page. However, most of them pages are simply “color the ice cream yellow” or something much simpler than expected.
Great book! Encouraging way to develop motor skillsThis series is a great incremental approach to working on coloring/motor skills. Although this is recommended for 2 and up, I would say it is better suited to older 2 year olds (2.5 and up) rather than all 2 year olds…primarily because most young 2 year olds aren’t as suited to listening to creative instruction (like “color here” etc).My son does love the book, though, and I love the incremental approach which builds confidence and skills at the same time!
Melissa F. Fields –
Kinah’s MomI purchased this workbook for my three year old, noting that the workbook is suggested for 2 year olds and up. My daughter has already developed the intial fine motor skills for tracing her name, painting, coloring, pasting, modeling clay, using spray bottles, drawing circles, lines, rectangles, stick figures, etc., I purchased this workbook with the hope that we would re-trace any steps in the fine motor skill process that we may have missed. The book opens having the child draw “spaghetti” on a colorful plate in the workbook, draw the “dots” on a red strawberry, draw “raindrops” on a rainy day scene in the workbook. Several pages instruct the child to color in a white circle in the middle of a colorful object (i.e., a lemon, egg plant, green pepper, etc., Then the child will color in white squares on colorful objects. We have had fun with the workbook. And I’m hoping this practice book contributes postively to her penmanship and coloring.
SimpleIt’s too simple and small for my 2 1/2 yr old son. It would have been more appropriate to purchase at the end of 1 yr old or beginning of his 2 yr. old. I don’t think it’s worth $6 & would not have purchased this again if I would’ve seen in it person first. Overall, good for a younger than 2 1/2 yr old child.
Great book !Purchased the set of 4 – great practice that builds as you go !
Good qualityGood book

The best first skill book for toddlers/preschoolersThe absolute best series of first skill learning books for toddlers. I bought this for my daughter at 2.5 years and now at 2.9 years she has completed the whole series and is so confident and proud of her work. Don’t hesitate to buy this!
Me ha gustado muchoEs un cuaderno a todo color. El tamaño es la mitad de un folio. Como se puede ver en las fotos no hay mucho para colorear, en mi caso esto es mejor, me está ayudando a trabajar con mi hija los colores y a que coloree solo la parte blanca del dibujo, así le resulta sencillo y no se aburre. Al final trae una especie de pizarra para rotuladores y un diploma.
Love this book…have got it 3 timesI have purchase this book for all three kids of mine over time. They all loved it. And I feel it really helps develop their colouring skills.
Perfect for kids with fine motor delaysIt’s very basic, which has made it perfect for my delayed 4 year old. She hates colouring and had poor fine motor skills, and these pages are more like games that are quick to complete and she had gained confidence. If you have a typically developing child, I would probably skip it since it is pretty expensive.
Maggie Dalmas –
Our granddaughter is enjoying it. I would recommend it.She is only 4 and spent a good deal of time using it.
Great fun practise book!Great ideas! My 2,5 years old enjoys the tasks very much. Just like with the other Kumon set of books I limited the number of pics to 4-5 per session. She loves it so much that I put a string along the wall and clipped each picture for display as she wants to show Daddy and talk about the pictures. Her skills are certainly improving but of course she isn’t able to color only within the line and I doubt she will be able to for a long time but that’s normal.
Mrs B –
ExcellentMy 2-year-old son likes colouring on the coloured pictures of this book much more than he likes traditional plain colouring pages. He can not hold a crayon properly or colour properly yet so I appreciate the explanation of how these skills will develop, and the activities which are appropriate for him. First the pages let him scribble (spaghetti on a plate, for example) and then he will move on to simple colouring.
FunIts fun for kids and parents! Like it.

Phantastisches MalbuchBisher hatten wir klassische Malbücher für unseren Sohn, aber die haben ihm keinen Spaß gemacht, denn er ist klein und malt eben noch viel über die Ränder. Bei diesem ist das anders: Hier sind die Mal-Aufgaben genau auf kleine Kinder abgestimmt, so dass trotz Gekrakel das Ergebnis prima aussieht und unser Sohn sich über seine Erfolgserlebnisse freut. Kurz: Wenn man mit Kindern schrittweise malen üben möchte und die Kinder vor allem Spaß dabei haben sollen, sind diese Hefte von Kumon definitiv das Beste, was man finden kann!
A partir de 2 añosAunque cuando me llegó me pareció que iba a ser muy fácil para mis hijas de 3 años y estuve a punto de devolverlo, la verdad es que a ellas les ha gustado mucho. Tiene formato pequeño ( cuartilla), 39 fichas a color, un diploma y una cartulina plastificada para usar de pizarra. Las fichas son sencillas, para completar y con pocos trazos, ( pinta pelo al niño, completa el limón de su color…) De ésta manera a las niñas les apetece seguir y seguir. Han hecho la mitad del cuaderno de una sentada. Por lo que durará poco. Es un cuaderno para ayudar en la autoestima, y enseñar al niño a mantenerse en una actividad durante un rato sentado. No pongo 5 estrellas porque se acaba pronto.
small but packed with good stuffSurprised me first at how small it was (like a quarter of a normal size. But it does say the dimensions so that was my fault. It’s still a great book and I love how easy it is for little ones to follow.

attenzione, concentrazione e motricità fineIn qualità di insegnante di sostegno mi permette di lavorare con alunni che hanno serie difficoltà di motricità. Inoltre, riesco ad utilizzare il materiale anche per attività di attenzione, concentrazione e riconoscimento simboli. Consiglio questo prodotto ai genitori di bambini che sono alla scuola dell’infanzia e a tutti i docenti che giorno per giorno devono preparare lavori calibrati su alunni con importanti deficit.
Excelente libro para colorear.A mi hija le encantó, le duró un mes, y ahora me pide mas libros. Comprare el que sigue, si es que lo encuentro.

I wouldn’t purchase again.I wouldn’t purchase again. You can buy a colouring book from a dollar store and teach your 2 yo the same principles. There was nothing special in this book for the price.
