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.
We started with alphabet workbooks and he was having none of it. It was 'me teaching/him learning' and I met with resistance and lack of interest. This maze book sparked something and I think the idea of 'winning' by reaching the end of the maze (that he completed by himself) was an a-ha moment of his. This in turn led to the successful introduction of other puzzle books and workbooks that eventually led to alphabet/math/writing/etc subjects. He is proud to finish one book and eager to start the next and for that I am very, very pleased.

My 4 year old was very excited to try this and got the hang of it quickly. She was so pleased that she could do it - albeit with a wobbly hand.Published 1 month ago by Ann Eliza
A full afternoon of fun though perhaps a bit too easy for a bright four year with good spatial skillsPublished 1 month ago by Sandy P.
