My child really enjoys this workbook. The activities at the end of each section are fun and there's a lot of different options for those. I like the repetition in the stories, lots of opportunities to practice. My only critique is the font - the "l" is written in an unusual font so my child often thinks it is a backwards "j" which throws him off. Some of the activities include words in different fonts (ex: cursive g) which for the beginning reader is hard to recognize.
