Workbook contains all kind of hiragana activities: reading, writing and even games. Though I'd prefer more writing pages, so that student's won't need buying special notebooks.

I have taught Japanese out of several books, and I would not recommend this one, especially for beginner Japanese students. It is not very user friendly, and there is not an answer key for any of the books.

I own several Kana workbooks. This one is average. Not as instructive as Rita Lampkins, not as comprehensive as Mitamura's two book set on hiragana and katakana, but OK.
I have the text as well and there is not really that much of a connection between the two. So you can use the workbook on its own. I don't own the tapes that give aural reinforcement to some of the exercises in the workbook. They are too expensive.

I've had experiences with the workbook for a college text on Japanese and it was almost worthless. This is not, the exercises match the book well and have some real value. I recommend this book. Not the best in the world, but up to the task. Recommended.
