This is one of two books (the second being 'mastering vocabulary') which contains forty lessons on words and word groups. Each lesson includes practice worksheets - which makes the hard copy more useful than the kindle version in my opinion - and helps build vocabulary. This is an American book, so you must be aware of the American bias and spellings. However, with the new CEM 11+ test concentrating much more on vocabulary and word meanings, this is a very useful tool. Although some of the pages may not be relevant, others apply equally to the US and the UK. There are many useful worksheets, where children have to put a list of words into the right space in a sentence, or pick the right definition, which will help improve vocabulary. Although it isn't the only book I would use, I think it is a very good resource, particularly if you are working towards the 11+.

This book is an excellent example of getting your child use to know and find varied vocabulary without loosing interest . As vocabulary is vital part for ks2 and essential component for 11 plus exam this one is really good practice with fun packed exercises to keep them challenged.

Good for learning vocabulary. One page introduces new words then a few pages give opportunity to practise these new words.
My personal opinion is it would have been nice to have new vocabulary words on every page.However it is a good book.

An excellent book to increase and consolidate literacy skills without it being too taxing on a youngster that isn't too keen to be stretched! .
