These books are ideal for pupils at independent schools, for parents intending to home school who require books with more depth than most produced or who wish to work at a higher level with their child to prepare them for future exams (eg 11+) or grammar school entry. There are three books in the Junior English series, which lead on to the "So you really want to learn English" books. Overall, a good investment if you want to improve your childs knowledge, comprehension and writing ability in this all important subject.
The book has ten chapters, but is split into various activities. As well as good, in depth comprehension exercises, it covers subjects such as nouns, capital letters, full stops, adjectives, etc as well as tackling spelling in each chapter. Unlike most English books on the market, it requires the child to answer questions in complete sentences, has writing exercises to extend storywriting or factual writing, gives examples of further reading if your child has enjoyed the extract each comprehension piece is taken from and suggests "Other things to do..." with extra activities.
For me, these are really the best books on the market if you are looking for something beyond a simple workbook. I should point out that your child will need to complete the exercises in a different notebook, the answers cannot simply be 'filled in'. There is also an answer book Junior English Book 1 Answer Book, although at this age you may be able to do without it. However, as the series progresses you might prefer to have the answer book at hand. Either way, this is an excellent buy and will certainly improve your child's written English.
