As of this week, we are halfway through the book and moving right along. Based on my conversations with parents of first graders in the local public school system, my kids are actually ahead of their peers. The best thing is, they are EXCITED to do their school work each day. They often ask for more work in the evenings! If that is not a good review of this book, I don't know what is.
My one and only complaint with the book is that there are often not enough pages dedicated to a particular concept. However, I have found that it is easy and fun to supplement the worksheets with games that we make up on our own. For instance, when learning beginning or ending consonant sounds, we would have races to find objects in the house that began or ended with the target letter that I would call out. This helped to really cement in the concept that had been studied in the book and present the same lesson in a different form.
If you are teaching multiple children at home, I HIGHLY recommend getting each child his or her own copy of the book. I considered buying one book and photocopying the pages for each of my children, but the cost of the book is likely less than I would have spent on paper and ink. I also DEFINITELY recommend buying a 2 inch binder and tearing out each page as you work on it. The book is very thick and does not bend open easily... tearing out the pages allows for much better handwriting form and it allows you to skip back and forth easily from the math to the reading sections.
