Overall, I really like this calendar. I bought it to help explain timelines to my 3.5 year old son who seemed to think that everything happens "tomorrow." This was great for being able to show him the numbers of days before an event, however, it would have been nice if it were bigger so that you could put two events on one day. It also would have been nice to include duplicates of some of the events. I'm sure most people's kids have sports practice or dance or music lessons more than once per month. It would be nice to not have to move it around every week so you can truly give your child a glance at what is going on that month. I like and dislike the fact that the magnet holder board is attached. It's a nice feature, but it would be equally nice if you could detach it and hang it separately or off to the side. You want your calendar to hang low enough fro your child to see it, but when you put it down that low, it makes the lower part hang too low and little curious fingers tend to play with the magnets that aren't in use. So it would be nice to be able to detach it and reattach is easily. This would also give you more options of where you can hang it in your house if wall space is limited. Overall, I recommend it for families trying to teach their kids the days of the week and to look forward to future events, but it would not suffice as a long-term family calendar.
