We love activity books that ignite the imagination of our children. What’s New, What’s Missing, What’s Different? will do just that with their fun pages, such as drawing different pillows under cats, comparing different fish tanks and circling things that are different, and pairing up shoes with their mate.

Even if your child does not feel comfortable with their drawing skills, this book will still draw them in (pun intended 😉 ) and may even boost their confidence.

You could even use this book as a jumping off point for further learning. For example, one of the pages in the book prompts children to make 17 new plants on the page. Before they do so, you could research different plant species and ask them to draw those in the pots. Science lesson and art all wrapped up in one fun assignment! 🙂

Other pages include drawing in missing aspects of sports equipment and then coloring the page. This book would make a great addition to your school day – simply assign a page when you notice your child needs a short break from arithmetic or grammar lessons but you don’t want them to drift too far away from their lessons.

One of my personal favorite pages – create your very own fancy cake. How fun would it be to then actually bake and decorate a cake to look like the one your child drew in the book? Talk about making their day! 🙂

What’s New? What’s Missing? What’s Different? even includes a fun math activity page.

And, what activity book would be complete without at least one robot page. Here you can find the two that don’t have a matching robot-buddy and then at the end, children are invited to design a robot of their own.

I did notice a few pages that I didn’t love (drawing scary plants, a costume page, etc.) but I am very picky when it comes to books for children. I wouldn’t not purchase this book because of those couple pages, however. The remaining 80+ pages are so fun that I would still highly recommend this book to everyone.

This book is available to purchase from Timberdoodle. You can purchase items separately or bundled together in curriculum kits. This particular book can either be purchased individually or as part of  Timberdoodle’s 1st-grade curriculum kit. We’ve purchased many items from Timberdoodle over the years – they have SO many fun and educational products, often times priced lower than other retailers.

If you aren’t familiar with Timberdoodle, they offer fantastic learning products for babies all the way up to high school students. We have used their curriculum for many years and have been very happy with not only their products but their amazing customer service as well. Not a homeschooling family? That’s fine too! They have an entire shop of products that would make the perfect gift for any child.
