I am a private tutor and this book is ideal support for KS2 learners. I would recommend it for tutors or parents wanting to help their child, or to understand what is going on in school literacy. It covers all you need for reading and writing, understanding and creating text and so on. It covers those definitions we tend to forget, like metophor and simile.
If you want to work with your child, you really need to buy practice papers to use with it. You don't need to use them like test papers, you can go through slowly with your child and really help them understand.
Top tip - discuss the stories, and make sure your child can organise and express their thoughts before trying to write them down.
