If you have younger children, you know how valuable activity books can be - especially during quiet time or waiting periods. I take comfort knowing that my daughter can always (well, for 30 minutes, at least) be entertained with a simple activity book and some Crayons or markers.
I received the Karl Jobst, D.D.S. Activity Book for
Kids knowing she would love it. Now, I am not so sure. The little girl on the cover that is brushing her teeth is cute enough, but I do not think it is going to inspire B too much, because frankly, it looks like the cover of dental hygiene brochure for kids. Chances are, she will give it a quick glance and eagerly open the cover.
The activity book is not very thick at all. There is a total of 12 activities for kids to do: seven pictures to color, two mazes, one Tooth Fairy letter to write, one word search and one crossword. The ink and the lines are also inconsistent throughout the book. A couple of pages (the back two) clearly have faded lines. Some of the coloring pictures have clear, thick lines and others have very thin lines. I do not think it is a matter of different artists, either, because this little Tooth Fairy tooth shows up on the first ten pages, but not the last two (with the faded lines). At the top of one page is the all-too-familiar
NAME: ______________ DATE: ________________, but it does not show up on any other pages.
Will this book serve it's purpose? Yes. But, as far as quality goes, it severely lacks.
