Linus the Croc

Parents and Home School

Looking for the best scissor skills workbook for your child?

Part of every pre-school and kindergarten curriculum, learning to cut is an important developmental fine-motor skill.

Introduction of scissor skills begins as early as age 2 1/2 and is usually mastered by age 6.

Unlike most workbooks, Linus uses key strategies to help children learn this important skill:

Scissor orientation

Linus is a reminder to keep ‘thumb-side up’


Linus asks for help--he’s hungry!

Developmentally sequenced

47 pages feed Linus--what’s more fun than feeding a hungry crocodile?!
