5.0 out of 5 stars Success!, 25 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Adorable Addition and Stinky Subtraction: Ages 5-6 (Basic Skills) (Paperback)
I was surprised how this has captivated my son. Upon showing him it, he seemed somewhat 'meh' about it, but once I read him the intro and shown him the characters in this workbook he soon got into the swing of things. I had anticipated him wanting to do two double spreads only, but he went like a champion and did four. On completion of each double page spread, the child can award himself a golden star (provided) to stick on a certificate at the back of the book.

It has to be said also that this also requires a little adult supervision too. My child is 5 and cannot read all the words on the page, so I have to do that and also explain what he needs to do. With guidance, the child gets out a lot more than just doing the sums, his attention can be drawn to the illustrations and gentle suggestions can help him bolster his confidence when getting stuff right. Excellent stuff. I've bought the next book - multiplication and division for 5-6, as well as addition and subraction for 6-7 in anticipation.
