The Good: This is a very inviting way to present the material to children. My son was very eager to get started on it and math is not always his favorite subject. In fact I had planned to do a page or two each day and on his first day he finished 25 pages. It took him a good amount of time and wasn't overly easy but you could tell some of the pictures were making the concepts click for him. He was also having a lot of fun with it.
The bad: Once you hit about page 36 you jump in skill level to 30 addition facts of a wide variety (doubles, doubles plus ones, oddball facts, etc). This continues for quite a few pages. There really isn't a good segue into this and they don't cover each different set of addition topics previously. For my son he was able to finish but again, he is already done with first grade and in fact a 2nd grade level in math. I'm not sure such a jump in subject matter would be good for an entering first grader unless they've mastered all their math facts already.
Overall if you are using this as a supplement I think it's really great. I personally wouldn't use it to introduce new concepts but rather to enhance the teaching of them. I will definitely buy more of these.
The content is good and grade-appropriate, and it even encourages some stretch work that I wouldn't expect from a first-grader, but the son is eager to try them. I can't recommend these high enough!

My daughter is six, and spent most of her school year in kindergarten this year (2016-17), and just moved up to first grade for the last quarter. I bought this to help her with the concept of adding double digit number (27+16), which is what she's been bringing home this week. This book doesn't touch on that at all. It matches up with the kindergarten homework we just moved away from, so it would be great for your 5-6 year old to go along with their math work, but I would say it's pretty useless except as review for first grade.
I thought to return it, but it is good and I will keep it for my second daughter who is coming up behind her sister soon.
