From the Publisher
Kumon workbooks are based on the "Kumon Method", an educational philosophy that aims at unlocking the full learning potential of each individual child. The Kumon Method introduces learning concepts in an incremental, step-by-step approach, allowing children to master new skills easily and without anxiety or frustration. As a result, children gain confidence in their abilities and are motivated to learn on their own.
Over 3.9 million children around the world use the Kumon Method to develop their math and reading skills. Kumon Math and Reading Centers help students become successful, confident and self-motivated learners.
But its not just the Kumon Method that makes our workbooks special. Its also the care and research that goes into the editorial content, design and quality of the books. Our editorial experts have more than two decades of experience in producing books that are both fun and educational. Our designers create illustrations that attract and delight children. And the quality of our books is the best of any workbook on the market, with extra thick paper and the best available print quality. From pedagogy to paper, every one of our workbooks has been carefully crafted with your childs best interests in mind.

My son finished this book quickly, and within a month I had ordered the next book in the series. My son is now 4 years old, and he has enjoyed working his way through the Kumon maze series:
- "My Book of Easy Mazes" (for ages 2-3-4)
- "My First Book of Mazes" (for ages 3-4-5)
- "Amazing Mazes" (for ages 4-5-6)
- "My Book of Mazes: Things That Go!" (for ages 5-6-7) - My son is working on this book now.
I like mazes because they encourage my son to pause in the thinking process to look ahead to see which path will pan out - this seems like a good cognitive ability to have. Also, it gives him a chance to practice his pencil grip, which is something I think about because I never corrected my daughter's pencil grip when she was a pre-schooler (I didn't think it mattered!) and now, as a 7-year-old in first grade, she still holds a pencil incorrectly (which makes her writing messy, and her hand hurts after even short writing assignments).
My only complaint about this book - and all Kumon workbooks - is in regards to the workbook's binding. The spine is thick enough so that when the workbook is open, the book and pages do not lay flat, making it difficult to write on them. For every new page my son works on, I have to REALLY press down on the binding to open up the pages and keep them down. My son could easily be self-sufficient while he works on his mazes, except that I have to be always nearby to push down the pages for him, otherwise he gets frustrated. I don't know if the binding is a function of the paper quality - which is very good - or what, but I just wish the pages would stay flat when opened, or at least be perforated so they could be easily removed and used as worksheets.
Imagine my surprise when I received a completed page sent back to me, along with a scribbly thank-you that included some previously mailed little surprises (stickers). That small gesture did my heart good—adults like receiving mail too—it’s as much fun as sending mail.
