Setting aside 10-15 minutes per day to work through each topic is probably a good way to go, and completing a topic before moving on to the next is also a good idea. The exercises are easy to follow and are progressive within a topic, and each topic starts at the basics each time.
As the child progresses through the book there are opportunities to consolidate the learning so far, once in the middle and once more at the end of the book. These are useful reminders for what has gone before.
There is a reward (of sorts) at the end of each topic with a star sticker to place within the topic page, and at the end of the book going towards an 'award'. Perhaps not the best motivator for some children, but others will no doubt find the visible progress a real pleasure.
The book itself is well thought out, with colourful characters to encourage the child, although some of the names could do with rethinking and the instructions and topic introductions can be a little complex and challenging for some children.
This book is best used as a support for primary school learning as each topic is really only touched upon, and often a child will need additional examples to make the learning point clear.
Overall a good book which can help support the learning process.
It is colourful and has a story and theme running through the chapters. This was very useful in keeping my brother, with a short attention span, interested. He has a strong interest in fantasy though, so I don't know if it will hold the attention of children who like ponies or football.
The book also includes a star chart and challenges which helped give my brother an added sense of achievement.
