I bought this book as my daughter's handwriting was beginning to get rather untidy. This book has UK spelling rather than US that some of the other books on the market have. She was keen to do the activities (which is always a good sign) and her handwriting has definitely improved since working through the activities.
This book is colourful and well laid out; each section has a series of questions. I bought this book to help our year 3 daughter at home. She told me that this is the same book they use at school, which is reassuring to know and either will reinforce what she has already learnt or prepare her for what is to be learnt.
