I think the age guideline is spot on for an average year 1 child and many of the maths concepts my child, who is 5, has been doing at school are covered in a fun way. She particularly enjoyed the pages on "money" which featured photos of real coins and the kind of mathematical issues children might really need to solve - eg how do you make up 9p from a range of coins. There are also pages on number bonds, shapes as well as simple addition and subtractions, all laid out in a clear, fun and engaging way.
This book is, in my experience, the type children want to do, it's fun whilst being educational and seems to have been written by someone who really understands the needs of this age group. My only criticism is the lack of sticky stars for encouragement - the answer book at this level is also maybe a little surplus to requirements. Overall though, good book, highly recommended.
My 5 year old can do this book on her own with a minimum of guidance and support. That's a measure of the quality I believe.
The question you might be asking is: why are you making your 5 year old do Maths? Simple - most state schools struggle to give mathematics it's real time and gloss over subjects too quickly. If you're child gets it at school, fine. But the paucity of mathematical learning is a function of this 'rushed' over hasty approach, full of anxiety and lack of confidence in teachers - not because they're bad. The political system is.
If you're worried then spend time with your children. This is a good place to start.
