These books are two activities in one, this is a story book with an attached drawing board, the drawing board is magnetic with a magnetic pencil, which is attached by a short cord, everytime your child draws or writes on this they just pull the slider accross and can erase and start all over again with no mess.
From the books I've seen they are all educational, like Dora's Alphabet Adventure, Sesame Street Counting with Elmo, Disney Princess Learning to write. The books are board books so very durable and last a very long time without worry of rips or tears or missing pages. They also wipe clean with a damp clothe.
All the books have a handle on the top, so your little one can easily carry them, they are great on long or even short car trips, they really do keep children busy for some time. As least they do with my 2 girls.
These are recommended for ages 3 and up, but my 2 yrs old has been using one for sometime now and has had no problems.
