This is a great book for learning how to correctly write the uppercase letters. The book is tracing of letters which gave my son, just turned 5, a lot of confidence in his writing. The only problem is that there really needs to be a part 2 for this book to help the children move from tracing these letters to writing them. The next 4 books in the recommended sequence all deal with lowercase letters, so the child is not given the opportunity to practice the uppercase letters.

I've bought several Kumon books for my 3 yo daughter, this being the lastest. The layout is wonderful. It groups letters together by shape and pattern instead of order, moving from simple to complex. It offers many variations of the same skills and keeps my daughter's interest. I've never ask her if she wants to work in the book, she picks it up periodically and works in it as long as she wants. She effortlessly learned how to write L, H, T, I, E and F.

I am a homeschooling mother of three boys and I like a lot of the Kumon books. My youngest is ready to learn letter recognition, basic phonics, and writing letters so I purchased this for him. (He just turned 4) With my older boys I taught them to write the letter in the order of the alphabet. When I opened this book and saw their approach of teaching the simplest letters first and then continuing with letters grouped by the types of lines they contain I thought it was worth a try. For HIM this method is not working, but now that we have continued with our standard ABC order he is doing well. I believe he was having a hard time remembering what was what because all the letters were too similar to one another in appearance and motion. Another con is that the book does not provide enough practice for each letter; you only write each letter 3 times. On the positive side, like all Kumon books, this book is very colorful and sturdy.

The letters are grouped by the type of strokes needed to master the letter. And the stroke practice pages prior to learning the actual letter are very helpful too. However, there are only 3 pages dedicated to learning the strokes and the child only practices an actual letter a total of 13 times throughout the whole book. It's hardly enough for a child to learn to write letters. The progression of learning the letters was logical, but the book lacked enough practice. After completing the whole book once, I went back with an eraser and cleared all the pages. Then made xerox copies of the letter practice pages. I had my son work through my xerox pages first and then went back through the book two more times. Once in pencil and once in a different colored pen, so that he could see his progression. I think KUMON could easily break this up into two books, one dedicated to letters with just straight lines, and one dedicated to letters containing curves and wavy lines.

My daughter is 4, and just started preschool. She loves the workbook. It teaches her to make different lines before she started the letters,which helped her make them correctly. Great for beginners.

This book (and the whole concept) is brilliant. I'm not one to push my kids to do things before they are ready, but as far as I'm concerned, if a child loves something you go with it, and my daughter loves this book. She is 2 yrs 9 months and wanted a "workbook" like her big sister so I got this thinking that she would really only scribble in it. After a few pages, she had learned how to draw straight and curved lines with control, and after a few more pages could trace most letters! She still can't quite get all of them (and at her age that's fine) - I'm going to go back and get the "Tracing" book because I think that is a better start for 2-year olds. This is a fun book for young kids who are interested in learning the basics of letter writing.

I really like the straight forward and fun approach this book uses to help the student learn to write uppercase letters. This allows learning to write to be fun instead of boring. A + book.

This book is actually well put together. It serves it purpose in teaching kids the basic structure of the alphabet, but it could have more pages that allow them to practice the lines. My 4 year old likes to pick this up whenever she see's it laying out, so it most likely won't be something your child will run away from.
