The book is very good.

My kid is in prek at a Montessory school, So my purpose of buying the book was to reinforce what is taught at school. The book is about rhyming words which are more of 3 or 4 alphabet characters (mat,cat,cap,nap,dad,sad etc). However the biggest drawback I found in the book is the number of pages.There is virtually no repetition possible if the kid needs to repeat it.

So to augment it, I purchased 'Movable Alphabets'for about $50.00 from a leading auction site (ebay or google to find movable alphabets,even if you dont buy , You will get a better idea). Alternatively, you can cut alphabets neatly printed on a paper( blue color for vowels and red for rest, 10/vowel and 5 regular alphabets,laminate it if possible and arrange it neatly in order of A-Z)

My kid loves to learn words and thank Kumon for it.Kumon Publishers,you are doing an awesome job ,but please do not do penny pinching...Charge few dollars more and make the book over 200 pages with several optional exercises.!

This is the reason why the book did not get 5 stars

I've heard a lot of great things about Kumon, so I was excited to get their rhyming workbook. It isn't any different from much cheaper workbooks that I already have. Every page is the same- it lists several rhyming words and has blank lines for students to copy the words. I wish I had viewed this book in person before buying; I wouldn't have gotten it.

I homeschooled my two older boys through highschool, and now I have two little ones again. I am so glad I discovered these workbooks--they are the best!! They are well worth the price, with 80 pages of good quality paper and excellent graphics. (Note the current 4 for 3 deal also!) My 4 year old son LOVES them. The material is presented incrementally, giving plenty of practice for confidence building, with logical progression and fun learning. My Book of Rhyming Words is for beginning readers. I can't say enough about how much I love these books.

have been trying to work on rhyming skills with my 4 year olds, but hadn't had much success. i had tried using a hodgepodge of worksheets and exercises, but the fundamentals of rhyming continued to elude my boys. i ordered these books and by the fourth exercise, it clicked! i can't say that there appears to be anything revolutionary in the format of the workbook, but it worked for us!

This is a workbook with quality, thick paper. The content is good. There are a few activities dispersed throughout, such as matching the picture with the word, but other than that, it is mostly tracing and writing. The biggest flaw is that the pages are not perforated, which makes it difficult to write on the left side of the workbook.

great workbook my kids each got one (4 yearolds) and they are really understanding word families from this book. I love Kumon good materials to learn from and they move at just the right pace. I also love the age recommendations they help to know if the book works instead of just putting grade suggestions.

My granddaughter loves the Kumon books, but this one didn't seem as interesting as the others. While the incremental presentation is essential, this one seemed to move a bit too slowly, so her interest waned.

WE love these for practicing reading our easy 3-letter words! I really like the ladders and winding trails, practicing similar sounds...

Love this book for my kindergartener. He enjoys the work and clearly remembers the words. Will be ordering more from this series.
