I gave one of these incredible books as a gift last Christmas and it was greatly appreciated by both Mom & Dad and the child. It's more than a coloring book and more than an activity book. It asks the child to use his imagination to complete pictures. For example, one page might have the outline of a blank television screen. Underneath, it says that it's time for the news and asks the child to draw the weather report. The next page might ask them to draw the weather report for where they would like to be. These books are lare (around the size of a College textbook) and impressive. They provide so many hoirs of constructive learning play. Several people who saw this gift have since purchased, and there are several different books by this author.
