Brooke Riley3 Stars Out Of 5October 6, 2009Brooke RileyI think this book could be really great, however we haven't really used it yet. The pages aren't perforated so copying all those pages to make the mini books etc is very difficult. I think that if this were a spiral bound book it would be getting some actual use at our house. Instead it's been sitting in the box waiting to be returned. I am disappointed.
