Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a colourful workbook, with attractive graphics to make maths seem fun. The illustrations include rockets, balloons, kites, animals, apples, cakes and ice creams. These pictures should help hold your child's attention as they answer a wide range of questions. On the other hand, they aren't so engrossing that they will distract the pupil from the maths questions.

The topics covered in this book are Numbers and Words, Counting, Counting in Ones and Tens, Counting in Twos and Fives, Ordering Numbers, More or Less, Adding, Subtracting, Pairs of Numbers, Money, Patterns and Ordering, Measures, Time and Shapes.

The centre pages contain the answers. They also include helpful learning tips which you can share with the student such as, 'If your child has made a few mistakes, remind them to double check their work next time - it's a really good habit for them to get in to.'

As a potential reward for completing the book, there is a maths-based board game printed on the inside back cover. It's called Race To The Moon, which will help the pupil revise some of the topics in this book. The only problem was my six-year-old son was more interested in playing this game than doing the exercises in the first place!

My 5 year old boy is OK with Maths, he does not love it nor does he hate it, however he picked up this book and finished it in two sessions (and said he loved it). Each of `his' sessions lasted 2-3 hours...

It's well set out, starting with very simple exercises building up to something more challenging for 5 - 6 year olds.

The good points:
- Kids learn maths without feeling they have to
- It keeps them busy and quiet for hours

Bad points:
- none

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Over the years I have often found CGP workbooks to be very helpful and this is one of a range for Key Stage One children. It is a nice, colourful workbook, with a pull out section of answers and a counting game in the back cover for which you do need a dice and counters (easily borrowed from another game). The book covers the following topics: numbers and words, counting, counting in ones and tens, counting in twos and fives, ordering numbers, more or less, adding, subtracting, pairs of numbers, money, patterns and ordering, measures, time and shapes. It is particularly helpful to find a book with an English money section, as most books on the market hardly cover this very difficult topic. There is a double page spread for each topic, which provides good practice and is just enough to tell if your child really struggles with one particular maths area. A clear, well laid out workbook, which will engage young children. The inside cover lists the complete range of English, Maths and Skills practice books in the range - I would love to see a Skills Practice book aimed just at money and time, which are, I think, two of the hardest areas to teach.

This book is well suited to the age group and my five year old does find it quite challenging. The pages are colorful and the wording is large which is really engaging. The activities are varied and if your child is resourceful enough they can find the answers in other places on the page.

For a few nights now we have worked through a few pages a night instead of watching the Simpsons. It is really good seeing how enthusiastic this book has made my boy to learn and it will be helping him get ahead in his school learning.

I have two grips with this book which we have overcome but ;
1. it would be really nice to have wipe clean pages so it could be used again and again, we have worked through in pencil but you can see the answers still even when rubbed out.
2. 8 pages of the book have been taken up providing the answers, this is a waste of space and not really required as an adult can help check if the answers are correct. Also a child could quite easily look up all the answers. Luckily the answers are in the middle of the book so it was quite easy to pull the out.

Good book and lovely to see the kids enjoying learning.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I think it's very difficult to make a maths book fun and entertaining for young children but this book makes a very good attempt. My daughter (5) has worked through the whole book now in short bursts of around 15-20 minutes before she's had enough but I think that most children find it easier to concentrate properly for short periods of time and very few will want to look at it much longer than that.

The pages are in color which looks a lot less like a work book and more like a fun, activity book so that's a bonus. And kids can pactice things such as writing out their numbers, reading comprehension (I get my daughter to try and read the instructions herself which helps her English too) counting items, colouring the right number of items, counting on in numbers other than 1 which helps with the times tables, filling in missing numbers etc.

Someone mentioned it's a shame that the book isn't wipe clean - if it was it would be twice the price. If you want reuseable copies you can photocopy pages (or scan and print) so kids can work on photocopied sheets instead OR you can do what I do and take out pages and laminate them and you can work on the top with a white board marker pen which will rub off.

I don't think my daughter is any more wild about maths than she was before but she's definitely learned a lot more using the book and it's helped her confidence too.
