My Experience: My 5-year old son started working on this Summer Brain Quest on 3/2/17 and finished it on 3/12/17. I have him worked on 2-3 levels each weekend. We also worked on a few pages during the week. I sat with him and read the directions to help him. He is still learning how to read because he will not start Kindergarten until Fall 2017. He loved working on this workbook. Each page is very fun and makes learning interesting. He enjoyed the mazes, math exercises, and drawings. He doesn’t like tracing words much but when he puts an effort to it, I complimented that his writing is beautiful. I also asked him to read over the sentence he traced. This workbook is organized by alphabetical order. Each level has a few alphabets and each page start with a new alphabet letter. Each letter makes a word begins with that letter or pictures begins with that letter. There are different fun activities in each level: a maze where my son is to lead a penguin to the igloo, coloring different ocean animals, math exercises by adding up fruits or veggies, mark whether things or inside or outside, filling in the missing numbers in the ice cubes, etc. There is a map and stickers for kids to stick to as they complete each level but my son didn’t do that part. This workbook focuses on variety of subjects: science, social studies, English language arts, and math. Each level is color coded so even the kids can keep track of their progress. As a parent, I really enjoy sitting down with my son and helping him work through this workbook. I love the many fun ways of learning. Each page is filled with different activities that it feels like they are playing a game. Some days he actually volunteers to work on this workbook over his other lessons where he feels it was more of a homework than doing this. I highly recommend parents to invest on this workbook or similar ones because it’s the fun in learning that makes kids want to learn. Brain Quest has many workbooks for all ages. Click HERE to check out your choices. It’s learning without feeling like doing the study. When your kids thinks they are playing games when in fact they are actually learning, it makes your part in enhancing their knowledge a lot easier. I want my kid to excel and workbooks like these helps a lot because I work full-time and I just don’t have the expertise and energy to make learning fun. Therefore, I highly recommend you to give it a try. xoxo, Jasmine at howusefulitis dot wordpress dot com for a detailed review
