Great book, but needs level 2 Dec 28 2005
By Melissa J. Newman - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a great book for learning how to correctly write the uppercase letters. The book is tracing of letters which gave my son, just turned 5, a lot of confidence in his writing. The only problem is that there really needs to be a part 2 for this book to help the children move from tracing these letters to writing them. The next 4 books in the recommended sequence all deal with lowercase letters, so the child is not given the opportunity to practice the uppercase letters.

Nice idea, didn't work for us Oct. 29 2009
By crstarlette - Published on
Format: Paperback
I am a homeschooling mother of three boys and I like a lot of the Kumon books. My youngest is ready to learn letter recognition, basic phonics, and writing letters so I purchased this for him. (He just turned 4) With my older boys I taught them to write the letter in the order of the alphabet. When I opened this book and saw their approach of teaching the simplest letters first and then continuing with letters grouped by the types of lines they contain I thought it was worth a try. For HIM this method is not working, but now that we have continued with our standard ABC order he is doing well. I believe he was having a hard time remembering what was what because all the letters were too similar to one another in appearance and motion. Another con is that the book does not provide enough practice for each letter; you only write each letter 3 times. On the positive side, like all Kumon books, this book is very colorful and sturdy.

Needs more practice pages Sept. 11 2010
By Portland Mom - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The letters are grouped by the type of strokes needed to master the letter. And the stroke practice pages prior to learning the actual letter are very helpful too. However, there are only 3 pages dedicated to learning the strokes and the child only practices an actual letter a total of 13 times throughout the whole book. It's hardly enough for a child to learn to write letters. The progression of learning the letters was logical, but the book lacked enough practice. After completing the whole book once, I went back with an eraser and cleared all the pages. Then made xerox copies of the letter practice pages. I had my son work through my xerox pages first and then went back through the book two more times. Once in pencil and once in a different colored pen, so that he could see his progression. I think KUMON could easily break this up into two books, one dedicated to letters with just straight lines, and one dedicated to letters containing curves and wavy lines.

Kumon does it again. March 3 2007
By Annie L. Horvath - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've bought several Kumon books for my 3 yo daughter, this being the lastest. The layout is wonderful. It groups letters together by shape and pattern instead of order, moving from simple to complex. It offers many variations of the same skills and keeps my daughter's interest. I've never ask her if she wants to work in the book, she picks it up periodically and works in it as long as she wants. She effortlessly learned how to write L, H, T, I, E and F.

We are very pleased July 8 2015
By Isabelle S. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This past year we were homeschooling preschool. My son, who had turned 4 last summer, really disliked using pencils or crayons. We tried writing a few times, but I didn't think preschool was a time for tears. We compromised and instead of writing he did the first kumon book of cutting, play dough, finger paint and some coloring with pencils (the day on a calendar for math). Now that he turned 5 a few weeks ago, I told him that we really should do some writing. I got this book and amazingly, he is now interested and happy to do the pages!

Granted, he finds them "easy" at age 5. This is not a problem, I think it is fine to do a few pages every day and quickly move on. I'm glad I followed the advice of other homeschool mothers and wait until he was ready to start and not worry that other 4 year olds in actual schools were writing their names. At this point he can read the instructions (with some help), and say "x" as he writes the letter X for example. And I'm glad he smiles and feels a sense of accomplishment. The amount of practice available in the book is sufficient for now. Of course, we will follow with further practice later on.

This book teaches the letters based on how easy they are for a small child to write. So they will write I, T, F and E before A, B or C. This approach doesn't bother me at all. But if you want to teach the alphabet in order, perhaps this is not the book you want.

This book has the age range of 3-5 years old. I have a 3 year old too. And I know kids vary in maturity and so on. But at least my children did not appear mature enough at age 3 to follow these instructions consistently. You know what my 3 year old does? She writes all over the page. This is fine, but she can just use a paper from the recycle pile for that :)

Update after finishing the whole book:
We finished this workbook about two months after we started. Again, my son is already 5 and able to read simple words. His letters are a little shaky, but he is able to form them correctly and just needs more practice and as we start lower case letters we keep practicing uppercase, but writing his name, last name and eventually copying short sentences. We have used several Kumon books and I am very pleased with the results overall.
