This personalized woodland animal-themed Busy Book includes 5 or 10 double-sided, laminated (dry-erase) activity pages (10 or 20 activities!-- there is an option to purchase 5 or 10 pages), a dry-erase marker with a pom-pom eraser, a felt eraser, a canvas case for storing parts (like WASHABLE dry-erase marker, dice and game pieces) and directions for use all in a 3-ring binder with a personalized cover. Since the pages are laminated, your child can complete the activities over and over again with the provided dry-erase marker and easily wipe away mistakes as they learn new skills!
