We really enjoy using the Kumon books. They keep my kids interested with some great skills to teach them.
Super fun and quick. My daughter enjoyed these and it helped to build her confidence when just starting homeschool. Great addition to your curriculum!
We loved all of these except for creativity. My maze loving son hated that it had you draw the same picture in fine detail 4 times. You'd really have to have an artist to appreciate this book at age 4, even at age 5 my son will only dabble in this book - he would much rather do mazes to work on his fine motor skills. And as far as art is concerned, the drawings were way above the level of what he would draw on his own so it didn't inspire his creativity at all.
That being said, the other three are like candy to him. He loves them and so do I.
I like the idea behind the workbooks but for us it was just a time filler and unless I explained it my son didn't really get it.
