Book Review: The Greatest Dot to Dot Books in the World
First Son loves dot to dots. Most of the time he breezes through them, but still enjoys every minute. Kansas Dad found The Greatest Dot-to-Dot Book in the World, Book 1 on Amazon and we bought it for First Son months ago. It was much more challenging than any others he had done, but he loved it. It entertained him for hours at a time over many months. The pictures are much more difficult to discern in advance than most dot to dot books. While some follow the standard protocol (connect the dots in order from 1 to something like 150), many have more involved instructions like connect 1 to 50, raise your pencil, connect 51 to 75, raise your pencil...etc. I think there were even a few that instructed First Son to connect the odds then connect the evens. It was such a winner, we purchased The Greatest Dot-to-Dot Book in the World (Book 2) for First Son over the holidays. He's still working his way through it. It's one of the first books I grab when I know we'll be waiting somewhere for a while. There's a whole series and I imagine we'll eventually collect them all.
