Grades PreK+

I have so many problems getting my son who is 4 interested in holding a pencil correctly & drawing. This may not be but the products may point of teaching children how to correctly hold a pencil but Ace has encouraged my son to "want to" learn correct holding! Ace's laughing & barking even made me laugh because it was so silly.

I also like the feature of associating green with correct (his lights turn green) & red with incorrect. This little guy encourages children to have fun while learning! Great for traveling or some quiet time for  children.
