This could have been a great book, if more emphasis was placed on layout than the (admirably good) graphics and illustrations.
I will be using it as a sort of companion/practice book to the Vocab section of First Aid English, which it replicates almost exactly.
It is not bad for general English practice but my biggest gripe is the wordsearches - the boxes for writing in are absolutely tiny and as my daughter has large handwriting, this is incredibly frustrating.
Overall, not quite worth the £12.95 it cost including postage...

As a parent I have never felt confident enough to help my child with their homework. With this book, we work through exercises together and really do believe it has had a profound affect on Ricky. I recommend this book highly and am sure you will see positive results!
