Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"If you are looking for some good, fun, learning books for your child, I definitely recommend the Sylvan Learning series." -thedadjam.com

"Samantha loves these books because to her, they are not school work. They are fun activities. But really she is learning, and doing the same work she does at school."
 -Mommymandy.com
 
"Since I was beginning homeschooling and looking for a good 'workbook' type system for my child to learn from aside from our other homeschool activities, I decided to try it out. My son loves the workbooks." –thedomesticdiva.com

"The activities are FUN and our son doesn't realize that while he's having fun he's also learning and reinforcing what he's learned." -Shescribes.com

"My daughter has picked up some great study habits and she loves that we don't spend hours on one subject. I recommend these workbooks to everyone homeschooler or not, as they can really add to your child's learning experience." -Thedirtyshirt.com

"I love how each activity in a section connects to eachother, which allows the child to really grasp the concepts. The pages are full of interesting stories and fun activities. The workbooks also make it easy for kids to check their own work which will help them gain confidence in their skills." -Melissaclee.com

"As an early childhood teacher, I know that good reading, vocabulary, and spelling skills make an essential foundation for both academic success as well as lifelong learning.  Sylvan Learning Workbooks & Learning Kits are an awesome resource that I'd have no problem recommending to the paretns of any of my students who are struggling.  The teacher-reviewed, curriculum-based activities and exercises in these books are great for helping a child achieve success with reading, provided that they're worked through with a loving and patient adult." - TheOpinionatedParent.com
