Reviews - What do customers think about My Book Of Numbers 1-30 (Kumon Workbooks)?
We really enjoy the Kumon books May 5, 2008
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.
Excellent book,but inadequate without a photocopier.. May 4, 2008
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.!
EXCELLENT TEACHING TOOL Dec 12, 2007
My First Book Of MazesMy First Book Of Tracing (Kumon Workbooks)My Book Of Numbers 1-30 (Kumon Workbooks) I purchased the Kumon Mazes, Tracing and Number Workbooks for my granddaughter. We'd already begun working on phonics with another series of books, but I must say the Kumon books are superior to any others we've used. She enjoyed the exercises so much, she wanted to finish the entire book in one sitting. Her writing and manual dexterity improved very rapidly. I highly recommend this series.
Great learning tool Nov 20, 2007
My 3 year old is excited to do a section everyday. It only takes about 10 minutes to do each section. The pictures are great and it is a lot easier for him then tracing dashes. I started with the tracing book and bought several other books after he completed the first one. I highly recommend it.
My 3 y.o. can write his numbers! Apr 15, 2007
I have been using Kumon workbooks since my son was about 3 years and 2 months. We have worked on the books in the recommended order. His tracing has improved and he has learned to write his numbers and letters without having to trace them!
