The activities in "Mighty Fine Motor Fun" are organized by age; they are useful and creative, but most important, they are fun With few materials needed, teachers will find that the activities are perfect for both large and small groups, and are easy to integrate into any curriculum.

In the final chapter of the book, author and occupational therapist Christy Isbell answers real questions from preschool teachers, including "Should preschoolers use 'fat' or 'skinny' pencils?" "What type of paper is best for cutting?" and "When should a child use an adult-like grasp of the pencil?"
