My son was given a whsmiths voucher for Christmas and he chose this. I thought it quite expensive at the time, £9.99 but have since thought it good value as the inks were far better than I expected and the ideas inside easy enough to follow and replicate by my 6 year old.
There's loads of ideas pages with step by step instructions on how to make the different bugs, animals, flowers etc.
The book is perfect to grab (with done wet wipes!) and take along to amuse whilst waiting for older siblings to finish clubs, or whilst waiting at a restaurant etc. 
great little craft book, perfect present for children of most ages I think, as older children can get ideas and make larger pictures using more ideas and younger ones can explore and play.
Highly recommended and will buy some for gifts in future.

Lovely interactive book which my 5yr old loves. It is messy but less so than painting!!  Lots of different coloured ink pads which last very well (although the colours do get a bit mixed up). Lots of ideas for making fingerprints into animals, which can then be used elsewhere and not just in the book.  Highly recommended.

I bought the girls one of these each in anticipation of the wet Easter break. Low and behold, the third day in, wet and windy, these fantastic books came out!  They are AMAZING! I have to admit I was sceptical about the ink pads, thinking they would be poor quality, messy and dry up easily. I was wrong! The colours a bright and vibrant and, they don't smear when pressed on the book and there is enough ink when pressed to make the imprint you want in the book.   The books itself is superbly put together. It ass different activities on every half page and it suitable for children of all abilities. The older the child the more complex shapes and pictures you can create. Eleanor had lots of fun on the page where you create caterpillars. She fingerprinted a caterpillar the size of the page and then drew him about 20 legs, a set of eyes and some antenna's!  Scarlett spent a lot of time on the spider and bird page creating some great spiders hanging in webs and birds sat in the tree.  We still have oodles of pages left to do for the rest of the break so hoping the ink pad will hold out to the pressures!  Another great Usborne book. 5 +

This is a lovely activity book, with plenty of ideas for fingerprinting. It comes with an ink pad with 7 different colours to colour the fingers to make prints with. Each page has a different scenes to add finger prints to. My 2year old lovs this book, and it keeps her entertained for ages. A great, fun interactive book, would recommend. Best to supervise young children when using it, as it says in the front of the book, not to get the ink on clothes or surfaces as it will stain.
