I found these huge books full of preschool activities and stickers at Costco for a great price awhile ago.  They’re part of the Gakken series and are so worth buying – we love them!  The illustrations are totally precious, and the pages are double-sided.

I bought two different workbooks and they each have different types of activities in them.  They say on the front what skills your child will be working on.  For instance, this one has shapes, counting, drawing and coloring, and cutting and pasting activities inside.  The other one we have has mazes, dot-to-dot, and alphabet activities.  The activities are perfect for getting your child ready for school – learning to follow instructions and comprehend the task assigned is a skill in itself for a three and four-year-old.  :)

For example, following only the apples in the maze:

… and cutting and pasting patterns in the correct sequence:

There’s plenty of freestyle fun, too!

Besides these, there are tons of stickers (some for rewards and some part of the activities) and a dry erase board on the back of each book:

If you come across these at Costco or anywhere else make sure to snap them up because I can’t find them on ebay, and they’re scarce at Amazon, too.  Check out what they have available here.

Have you ever used Gakken workbooks before?

One Response to Preschool Workbook Recommendation: Gakken Workbooks

  • I have twin boys who are 2.5 years old. They are having a lot of fun with the Gakken workbook. I bought the workbook at Costco when they were just months old. I never used them before. The nanny and I personally use copied pages from the workbook. That way the kids can practice and sharpen their skills.
