Book Description

Feb. 1 2004 Kumon's Practice Books
Through a combination of tracing and recitation exercises, this book encourages children to practice writing the numbers from 1 to 9 repeatedly until it becomes second nature. While improving basic pencil-control abilities and learning the numerical order of numbers from 1 to 30, children are naturally exposed to the world of numbers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book Feb. 21 2013
Verified Purchase
It helped my son to not only learn the numbers but also to build confidence and love for study. At the beginning he hates to study because of lack of motivation and self-confidence. After starting the Kumon books (this is the first Kumon book he started with and now working on the multiplication workbook after finishing the simple addition, addition, and grade one addition, simple subtraction, subtraction, and time) his confidence level and motivation to study increased.

Please note, I praised him by giving a gift after finishing each Kumon book. They love it. This way, when we go to the store and when they ask me for a toy, I say “sure, I will buy it for you but only after you finish your book.” And I do buy it for them after they finish the book. So they know they will get the toy some other day if not today. I guess this might have motivated him as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book,but inadequate without a photocopier.. May 3 2008
By T. Chandrasekhar - Published on Amazon.com
This book is very good.

There are plenty of Kumon books for numbers ( 1-30, 1-70,1-120, 1-150 etc). While it is a legitimate wishful thinking of every parent that their kids be good at numbers of over 100, my suggestion is that the kids have to first get past this book on numbers before stepping into others.

My kid is in prek at a Montessory school, So my purpose of buying the book was to reinforce what is taught at school.

The book is very good in a way it takes the kid through the complexity of numbers in a clean fashion.First a generic drawing connecting the numbers etc.. However the biggest drawback I found in the book is the number of pages.There is virtually no repetition possible if the kid is not getting past a set of numbers.

I will use number 2 as an example from a kid's perspective

Exercise goes like this :
Chapter 11 :
1,2,3 (the kid writes 4 times)
2,3,4 (the kid writes 4 times)
Chapter 12:
3,4,5 (the kid writes 4 times and so on )

Problem is the kid gets to write, for example a difficult number like 2 total of 8 times. Again the kid gets a glimpse of number 2 in chapter 15 ( assume this happens after few days where kid has forgotten how to write it)
Chapter 15:
1-4 ( write 3 times)

And then the chapters pretty much assumes that the kid knows the numbers and gets into exercises like matching the numbers with number of fruits etc.

Similar to most kids, my kid had problems writing 7,9 and 10 ( In spite of my kid writing at school) .I had to make between 3-5 copies of every exercise and asked her to write it out,so she became familiar and ready for the subsequent exercises.

If the kids dont grasp 1-10 effectively, the whole subsequent exercises till 30 goes in vain.

And if you need a photocopier , then the purpose of buying a book is defeated, afterall there are so many websites from where you can download similar lessons!

Kumon Publishers,you are doing an awesome job ,but please do not do penny pinching...Charge few dollars more and make the book over 200 pages with several optional exercises.!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Investment to Get Started April 28 2006
By youbee - Published on Amazon.com
My 4.5 year old knew his numbers, but when I saw the inside of this book on amazon, I realized that I have not used any technique to build his basics in counting etc., and bought this book

Numbers 1-30 starts with simple curve excercises that allow the child to

1. learn drawing curves

2. reading and writing numbers

3. introduces children [ and parents ] to focus on the stroke and the right way to write the numbers.

4. Counting as groups and allows build up pattern recognition skills

My son who was used to counting with his finger, now can count in groups by looking at a group of dots. Thanks Kumon.. I just purchased the next book .. counting 1 to 120

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely worth the investment, but ... Dec 28 2005
By Melissa J. Newman - Published on Amazon.com
I would highly recommend any of the kumon books, because they are very well done. The first 20 pages of this book were number tracings. Then it went to writing numbers by copying the numbers from very small text to writing them from memorization. This was too big of a jump for my son who had just turned 5. So we took a break and did the Uppercase book. Then we did the "review" part of the Simple addition book. Then we went back to this book and my son was able to continue just fine. I loved the book, but there should really be a whole book dedicated to tracing numbers, before requiring the child to write numbers from memory.

5.0 out of 5 stars We really enjoy the Kumon books May 4 2008
By Sahamamama - Published on Amazon.com
We purchased several of the beginning Kumon workbooks -- Numbers, Easy Mazes, Tracing, and Cutting. Our three year old daughter looks forward to using her books. The cutting may seem simple to an adult, but it truly requires a young child to concentrate. I have never seen her quite so focuse! For the other books, I tear out and trim the pages, then place them under a clear desk mat. We can write on the mat with dry erase markers. In this way, my little one can "practice" the page again and again (not just once) -- she seems to enjoy the mastery of this process. It probably would be possible to laminate the pages, but we find that the transparent plastic mat works nicely.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good, but only with additional tools May 20 2011
By smartyjones - Published on Amazon.com

I agree with other reviewers that this books needs FAR more practice pages than are provided. Following the advice of another reviewer for other Kumon books, I use clear plastic page protectors and colorful dry erase markers so my kid can just wipe away her work when she finishes a page with a paper towel. It leaves the book completely clean for more practice. The younger the kid the more review they will need. I place a page protector on the exercise I want plus the opposite page, then my kid picks her marker. This also works when she makes mistakes, because she can correct them rather than having a permanent mistake in her book.

I wish it wasn't only the first ten pages that are in full color. The rest of the book uses spot color, different shades of one color per page, so it misses the charm of their mazes, cutting and tracing books. I wish there was a greater variety of exercises, but perhaps there is only so much you can do. I definitely like having this book rather than coming up with worksheets myself.

Breakdown of the book exercises (2 pages per exercise):
1-5: Number puzzles (connecting dots using numbers 1-10)
6-16: Writing numbers 1-10 (3 different ways of tracing)
17-18: Count and match to the correct number
19-21: Various tracing, counting and filling in missing numbers 1-10
22-22: Number puzzles (using numbers 1-20)
23-29: Counting and circling numbers, various tracing and filling in missing numbers 1-20
30-31: Number puzzles (using numbers 1-30)
32-40: fill in numbers missing in sequence

The last exercise has almost all the numbers missing, so clearly kids need a lot of practice to get to that point. Especially if they are younger. My three year old will focus more on practicing writing the numbers. The books helped me realize she couldn't recognize a number when it wasn't in sequential order. With the page protectors and dry erase markers, I don't need additional books, and it's clean enough for younger siblings.
