The beauty of the activities is that they require very little previous knowledge of maths, but open up all sorts of discussions and investigations of patterns & strategies. This makes it a great resource for a non-specialist primary school teacher, or for use on summer schools.
The comb binding of the book is also useful, as it makes for easy reference and photocopying.
