It is not only a book, it is a funny riddle games. My child spent 10 minutes per day but it benefits on the skills of decoding, phonics, spelling, and vocabulary building. My child loves to do it everyday!

If your child loves words and reading this is a fantastic tool. The moment it arrived my daughter began working the ladders and has done some each day since.

Each page was more interesting than the next. There were some that even I as a parent had to really think hard on,( but pleased to say I did get them ) but my daughter and her friends just loved them. Even her 4th grade teacher has used some in her class!! Fabulous book. Would reccommend this to anyone. I had never seen anything like this, they didn't have these exercises when I went to school! If you have never tried one, you should buy this book and work on the ladders with your child. It will be fun for everyone!! It was worth every penny!
