We have many workbooks for my young boys, and found this one particularly unhelpful. It doesn't actually teach the child to read (no phonics or sounding out or focus on letter sounds). I guess it would work if your child already knows how to read some and you just want some simple activities to do. But for your average kindergartener who is only starting to figure out basic 3-letter words, it's not useful at all.

Example: Page 3 says to "Read the sentences. Follow the directions." Then they're supposed to read the sentence "Color the big trucks green" and fill in the picture. My child (just starting to read) would definitely not be able to read this sentence, so then it just turns into a coloring exercise as I read it to him and he follows the directions.
My daughter loves doing worksheets and "homework." She is 4 years old, but an early reader. We found these books to be great reinforces of early reading concepts. She was able to do some of the work independently but I usually would oversee her work to make sure she was on track. She completed the workbook in about two weeks. There are some sticker pages in the book that coordinate with some of the lesson pages. My favorite workbooks remain the Brainquest ones, but these were worth the few bucks. It was a good change of pace from our normal workbooks, my daughter enjoyed it, and she got a big sense of accomplishment from "finishing the WHOLE thing."
These are always great workbooks. Bought for a gift the little girl loved it.
Exactly what I need for a friend's son.
Nice book for kindergarten ????
I homeschool my daughter and these books are great for learning and teaching.
