I was disappointed by this booklet because I was looking for something more beefy. Mental maths, for me, shouldn't be done on a sheet of paper but in your head. I would have liked a few pedagogical pointers for parents and a row of possible games / exercises for children - my daughter doesn't like maths and this hasn't helped her.

I'm not a great fan, but my 6 year old daughter absolutely LOVED it. It's got a bit of adventure, a bit of repetition, a bit of magic and a happy ending each time and it's just the right length.

The children loved it. It's big, bright, colourful and the pictures behind each door just right.

Easy, entertaining and imaginative. My six year old can more or less do the little projects on her own and has loved this book. It's one of her favorites.

Reading Lesson: Teach Your Child to Read in 20 Easy Lessons
Reading Lesson: Teach Your Child to Read in 20 Easy Lessons
by Michael Levin
Edition: Paperback
Price: £17.99

4.0 out of 5 stars This works!, 28 Oct. 2015
This method works. My eldest is reading really well and my 4 year old is making huge progress.

We live in France and so I'm teaching my 6 year old and 4 year old to read with this book (+ Alphablocks DVD + Read it Yourself Ladybird Collection + a couple of other books - but really it's this one that is teaching them how to read.)

I've only put 4 stars because:
1) my 6 year old finds it "boring" (There is a LOT of repetition - so we don't always read all the pages).
2) Most of it is incredible logical, but other things less so or are not explained ("his" is read with a 'z' sound at the end).
3) Frustratingly the book is mostly written in fragments. I'm not sure why there are so few complete sentences until about half way through the book. (Articles such as "the" and "a" could easily be added here and there but they are not - and my children tend to just add them all the same which then bothers me because I try and teach them to read what's written and not what they imagine ought to be written!

But these are just small caveats.
This method works!

These fairy lights are soft (they won't hurt your eyes). They are easy to set up and switch on and off automatically. The children love them and I really like the colours.
