Fun is great for math.
Elevenofus
It teaches the concepts one step at a time with very little language but examples for each concept taught.

This book is not too wordy, so if you have a reluctant reader then this book will work for them.

I am a home schooling mom of twin boys and one of the boys just doesn't get math. After doing 2 math programs he still wasn't getting it. I bought this. I can't believe for 14 dollars he gets it. I have spent hundreds of dollars in math curriculums for him. I wouldn't use it alone but as a supplement it is great. The book starts out with understanding the concept of the value of numbers. It touches on patterns and addition and subtraction. It teaches the concepts one step at a time with very little language but examples for each concept taught. My son has expressive receptive language disorder. Which means he has a hard time understanding language. This book was a perfect fit for him. If your child has a difficult time understanding math or language or both this book is worth a try. Some of the cons is it is black and white print only the pages are boring and the paper is thin which makes erasing difficult with lots of rips in the paper. There are no manipulatives for multi sensory learning. Over all a winner for him. It may not work for other children. It gets 5 stars because it made a struggling math student succeed.

Love this program. My friend and sister-in-law have both had success with it, too. My first grader was struggling in math and we used this as a supplement to the school's math curriculum. It is far superior to what the school is using. It builds slowly and uses a lot of repetition, which helped my daughter feel confident in her math skills. She had commented that she didn't like math and thought she was bad at it, but she asks to do her Jump math and says it is "easy." I also have my pre-Kindergarten daughter doing it and she enjoys it, too.

The author has one motive. He wants children to succeed at math. He is not trying to make money. (Profits from the sale of the books go to the JUMP non-profit organization.) The goal of this book is to teach math in a way that students understand and succeed.
I love math. I have taught math for twenty years. I have taught in public school, have tutored students in math, and have taught my own children math as I have homeschooled them. And in all that time, I have yet to find a series of the books that I LOVE for the primary grades, and I have tried and used many in the last twenty years. I have liked Rod and Staff for my children in grades three through eight. (Though I may end up like this series better. This First Grade Jump at Home book is the first one I have had.)
This book is printed on newsprint. Great. I do not have a need to spend more on a consumable math workbook that my child may well leave out in the rain. It is black and white print instead of color. Great. I find cartoony colored pages to be distracting. Each page has enough on it to make use of the page without so much that it is too busy or overwhelming.
The first few pages explain the program. Then the author has teaching suggestions and games that are EXCELLENT! They are easy to implement and they WILL help a child to understand math. These types of experience have been what helped my own children to have a great start in math.
This book is fun. Fun is great for math. I love math books that have games and make math interesting.

For children who do not grasp a concept easily and need repetition for several days this book is PERFECT! We recently switched our Math curriculum to this series as the one we were using "jumped" all over the place and the children were just not grasping each important math concept.

This book is not too wordy, so if you have a reluctant reader then this book will work for them.

Each page has an example of one of the problems already filled in and completed which is another great bonus for your child.

At the beginning along with the introduction are several pages of games, activities and puzzles which are excellent. This is followed by 7 Main Units with sub units:
1 - Number Sense 1
2 - Patterns and Algebra 1
3 - Measurement 1
4 - Probability and Data Management 1
5 - Number Sense 2
6 - Patterns and Algebra 2
7 - Measurement 2

Simple and methodical yet challenging at the same time.

Price is EXCELLENT! Our other Math books were costing $40 a piece so this is a really great price.

One reviewer mentioned you needed the supporting curriculum to work with these books. We have not found that to be true. This book is independent and the instructions are very self-explanatory. NOW please note there are no answers, those can be found online, BUT at this level an answer book is not needed at all.

Highly recommended from our house to yours.
