I love these math workbooks! They are colorful, fun and engaging. The reason for giving it only 4 stars ironically is because of how they teach the number 4 formation!! I don't know anyone who write their fours like this: 4, yet that is how they teach it in this workbook. I prefer my children learning their fours the mainstream way, you know: "down and over and down some more, that's the way we make a 4." Please, please, please correct this Horizons!!!
I am using this book for the to homeschool a four-year-old kindergartener who is excited about getting into "real" book work. The pages are great for extra practice on writing numbers, counting objects to circle them, and identifying more advanced shapes. We combine this book with counting 1's and 10's on the number chart, and exposure to money and the clock, which they also refer to and then teach in this book.
