I've worked in educational publishing and I'm now working as an early years educator, and I am not sure that a lot of thought has gone into the activities in this book. I was hoping for something that would help my son consolidate what he should have learned by the end of the Early Years Foundation Stage, and this book isn't it. I originally bought the age 5-7 book but that's too difficult (and requires a higher reading level than an end-of-reception child generally has) and this book is too basic. The most valuable exercise is the occasional dot-to-dot, and I really do wonder how the colouring in pages contribute to maths skills. I wish I'd had a chance to look at this book before I bought it because I wouldn't have spent my money on it.
