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 3.5 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.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Granted, he finds them "easy" at age 5. This is not a problem, I think it is fine to do a few pages every day and quickly move on. I'm glad I followed the advice of other homeschool mothers and wait until he was ready to start and not worry that other 4 year olds in actual schools were writing their names. At this point he can read the instructions (with some help), and say "x" as he writes the letter X for example. And I'm glad he smiles and feels a sense of accomplishment. The amount of practice available in the book is sufficient for now. Of course, we will follow with further practice later on.
This book teaches the letters based on how easy they are for a small child to write. So they will write I, T, F and E before A, B or C. This approach doesn't bother me at all. But if you want to teach the alphabet in order, perhaps this is not the book you want.
This book has the age range of 3-5 years old. I have a 3 year old too. And I know kids vary in maturity and so on. But at least my children did not appear mature enough at age 3 to follow these instructions consistently. You know what my 3 year old does? She writes all over the page. This is fine, but she can just use a paper from the recycle pile for that :)
Update after finishing the whole book:
We finished this workbook about two months after we started. Again, my son is already 5 and able to read simple words. His letters are a little shaky, but he is able to form them correctly and just needs more practice and as we start lower case letters we keep practicing uppercase, but writing his name, last name and eventually copying short sentences. We have used several Kumon books and I am very pleased with the results overall.
My son is 4 and it is great. If you are looking for a book to go along with it for additional practice forming the letters, try the Handwriting Without Tears series.
Great book to introduce and learn the letters while also learning to form them.
Only complaint I have would be to make the pages easier to tear out!
