Kumon workbooks are based on the “Kumon Method”, an educational philosophy that aims at unlocking the full learning potential of each individual child. The Kumon Method introduces learning concepts in an incremental, step-by-step approach, allowing children to master new skills easily and without anxiety or frustration. As a result, children gain confidence in their abilities and are motivated to learn on their own.
Over 3.5 million children around the world use the Kumon Method to develop their math and reading skills. Kumon Math and Reading Centers help students become successful, confident and self-motivated learners.
But its not just the Kumon Method that makes our workbooks special. Its also the care and research that goes into the editorial content, design and quality of the books. Our editorial experts have more than two decades of experience in producing books that are both fun and educational. Our designers create illustrations that attract and delight children. And the quality of our books is the best of any workbook on the market, with extra thick paper and the best available print quality. From pedagogy to paper, every one of our workbooks has been carefully crafted with your childs best interests in mind.
My 4 year-old loves this book! Great for teaching young kids to draw lines and reinforce number orderMy 4 year-old absolutely loves this book. Looking through it at the store I thought it may be too hard for him, but we followed the chart on the back of another book to decide what to buy next and it turns out this book is one of his favorites. Some of the dot-to-dots have some weird overlaps and for young drawers who can’t make perfectly straight lines it’s a little bit of a guessing game to decide what the picture is . . . but it’s a fun game and is actually the BEST motivator for my son to slow down and work on his lines because he earns looking at a picture at the end vs not really caring how perfect his lines are when he practices tracing or writing letters/numbers. Also, it’s great because he used to skip certain numbers, like 15 for some reason . . . this helps him backtrack and realize which number he skips so he remembers the next time. He loves the fill in pictures by number too. Thanks Kumon!

Kumon is my favorite color by number / connect the dots book seriesGreat, only wish they had more in the series, this one says 3-5, but is more likely 3-4 as the highest number is only 70.

Not as good as the other Kumon books for my 3-year-oldMy almost 4-year old LOVED the Kumon mazes and cutting books (and has been badgering me for more). In this Numbers 1-30 book the activities consist of either coloring in certain numbered shapes to reveal an image (i.e., color all #1’s yellow, all 2’s blue, etc) or joining numbered dots in order to reveal an image. He likes the numbered dots pages just fine but refuses to do the other side (the 2 types of activities face each other across the page) because he’s just not that into coloring. Kids who like to color in large parts of a page should really enjoy this activity, but it bores him to tears. So a caveat for the parents of the non-coloring kids among you: you’ll waste half the book.
Great for learning higher numbers!I got this for my daughter when she was beginning to count above 20, but wasn’t good at recognizing the numbers yet. Starts from 1-10, then after a few pages of that, adds 5, then after practicing that a bit, adds 5 more… They start easy and move along at a pace that she kept up with until she was very fluent with all the numbers to 70! The back of each dot-to-dot has a color by number, but my daughter had very little interest in those. So half the book was unused =( But the dot-to-dot’s were very helpful & fun for her!
Really helps learn bigger numbersThis book is great & so is the one that follows it going to 150. I’ve already used both for my daughter and now am using them with my son. They like the dot-to-dots and the color by numbers and really start learning larger numbers faster.
It’s a good workbook for those who are starting to count past …It’s a good workbook for those who are starting to count past 20. I use it with my 3 year old as well as with number flash cards to practice counting, I think it’s good that he can learn 30-40 and then apply the knowledge the next day by coloring 33 red and 36 purple.

Bit boring for a 4 year oldNot a fan. It’s bit boring, page after page number tracing and coloring. I would rather skip to easy telling time workbook.
just a little something extra and fun for her to use during math classKumon books are my go to book when my kids need a little extra help. We home school and I find myself adding kumon work books to their classes often.This book was bought for my five year old, just a little something extra and fun for her to use during math class. She likes it, it is easy and repetitive, just what she needs to really learn these concepts.
Like this bookLike this book. It’s quite challenging for my almost 3yo. The only complain is that coloring pages will have little bit smaller coloring parts as my kid becomes tired pretty soon after starting it.
My daughter liked it so much that I had to order another …My daughter liked it so much that I had to order another one like this one. I wish It had even more repetition from 15 to 30. Good book.
AwesomeGreat educational helper. How nicely the book does step by step learning.
Great for preschoolers that like coloringQuality paper. Good combination of connect the dot activities and color by numbers that increase in challenge level slowly.

Boring workbookThis workbook is not a winner. I really like the Kumon workbooks for my little ones (2 and 4), but this one is very boring. There isn’t much variety in the activities…only a connect-the-dots on one page and a color-by-number on the next, on and on and on. My 4 year old’s hand gets tired from all that coloring and she does’t even want to finish the color pages…this is a child who loves to color and do workbooks. Not worth it in my opinion.
Good BookMy four year old loves this book. She is an avid color-er and always wants to do them all at once.
GoodI love the content but these workbooks don’t have tear out pages, which is strange being that each page has a space on the top for name and date as if you would tear them out.

Great bookGreat book! My four year old loves these, and does them voluntarily on his own. He would do one book a day if I let him…nice way to expand on numbers
Great books!Great book !! Our son has stayed up on his knowledge over summer using these!
Five StarsPerfect way to incorporate educational play during the day with my son who does not attend daycare/preschool.
Not worth itI got 7 kumon workbooks. This one was a waste of money. It is basically a dot to dot alternating with a color by number picture. 4 year will do the dot to dot but has no interest in coloring by number, would prefer to draw her own pictures. Nice thought just not engaging and too repetative.The ones that she likes the most are cutting, drawing and mazes. I like the lower case letters and numbers 1-30 for educational purposes and for fine motor skills.

The best way to get kids hooked on numbersMy daughter is a Kumon student in a math center in town. She absolutely adored this book and Kumon has a fantastic way of teaching numbers without challenging them too much or making it boring.
Teaching toolWe are fans of Kumon workbooks. This is just another one of their wonderful products. Fun and challenging for children.
Good practiceLearning the numbers having fun. My girl love the book, she’s compleating the excesises as a game, is a guarantee

Five StarsMy kids love these!
Too repetitiveMy 5 year old was so excited to get this, but after the 6th or 7th sheet she was crying if I mentioned doing one to kill time. If I spread it out 1-2 per month then they don’t care, but don’t expect kids to want to do these all the time and not get bored.

Enjoyable MathI’m a huge fan of Kumon and I love the Number Games book because it’s an enjoyable way for the preschoolers to count and recognize numbers beyond thirty.

Kumon Workbook BelieverMy 5yo son spent all day completing this book. Made me a Kumon workbook believer… we just started homeschooling so perfect timing.
Kids love these books!I have young twins. One of them will grab these books and a crayon and draws nearly an hour. He won’t even watch TV that long. He goes from front to back of the book and when he’s done, he starts at the front again. He doesn’t even care that he already has drawn on a page, he just traces again over and over. I have bought every book in the series.

Love itBought this for my son and he just loved it. Now I have to buy a similar one which they sell for the same age range. I’m so excited that he loves it so much. Keeps him busy for hours and he runs to show me each one after completion. Good Job

Great, but need book for more practice with 20 – 40 rangeThis is a great book for helping your child to learn the order of numbers from 1 – 70. My son did fine with the 1 – 20 range. Then when we went to the 20 – 30 range, he seemed to get confused about how the number sequences worked. We went to another connect the dot workbook to do more practice with 1 – 30 numbers. We also played number games to help him grasp the pattern for how numbers increase. After he grasped this concept, we were able to continue just fine with the book.

excellent choice for number recognitionmy 4 year old twins have enjoyed the Kumon books but this one has been their favorite. My son’s coloring detail and enjoyment of coloring has increased enormously. It opened up his desire to color. They both were familiar with their numbers but only to 12. This jumped us to the next level.
No variation in the “games”My 5 yr old started this book of Number Games 1-70 after finishing the Numbers 1-30 book. I wish I had looked at it more closely. As someone else said, it’s the same 2 types of games throughout the entire book. Gets very boring very quickly even with different pictures on each page. One side of the page has a connect the number (which my son will do with no problem) and the other side is color by number which he hates. I would have thought a book of games would have been more varied. As it was, it was pretty disappointing for the money.And, as with all the Kumon books we’ve purchased, the pages don’t tear out. The weight of the pages is pretty heavy so it’s hard to keep the book open well without breaking the spine. I finally got my box cutter and sliced the pages out.

Love The Kumon Math BooksI just love the Kumon Math books though I have to admit I have never tried the ones related to writing/reading. This book is especially good as the color by number pictures are really fun for those just beginning to recognize both numbers and color words. And the pictures when completed are of fun, familiar objects. The dot to dot activities are not quite as good as the color by number.
B. Kennedy –
Not Very InterestingWe have had several of the Kumon workbooks over the years and they have always been fun and exciting for our children to work through the problems. This one just has the same 2 puzzle types (color the correct number, dot-to-dot) all the way through and none of my children were interested for very long.
Consistantly excellentKumon books are always of an excellent quality. Have used them for over 30 yrs with my own kids, grandchildren, and in daycare. Loved by all.
Led to a breakthrough with counting and number sequencingI got this for my 3-year-old daughter after she struggled through the Numbers 0-30 book because I thought it would be good review and fun for her. She didn’t enjoy the colour-by-number as much as I thought she would, and she really prefers the verbal workbooks. However, this book led to a huge breakthrough, and she suddenly “gets” counting and is now able to read numbers from 1-999. I definitely credit the connect-the-dots. I am going to skip the next one in this pathway, Number Games 0-150, because she gets it. Thanks Kumon!In general, all the Kumon books have been fantastic for my daughter (we’ve done 7 or 8). We spend 20 minutes a day on workbooks right after breakfast, and then she goes about her day (including hours and hours of play time alone and with her brother). She’s a smart and curious kid and she loves to learn. I recommend that all parents give it a try with their kids and see if they live it.
Excelente para fixar os números.O livro é muito bom para crianças conforme a faixa etária descrita ou para aquelas que precisam de um reforço para fixarem os números.

Aprender a contar con el método KumonEl método Kumon es un sistema de aprendizaje japonés para aprender matemáticas. Se basa en las actividades graduadas por dificultad, comenzando por lo más sencillo y van poco a poco. Los libros están en inglés pero es fácil de entender en qué consisten los ejercicios. La calidad del material en cuanto a papel y colores excelente.
Ok, but expected something better.As other reviewer already said, the title is a bit misleading. There are only two types of ‘games’ — dot-to-dot and color-by-number. Color-by-number pictures are particularly tedious, as they are quite large and child will spend good 10-15 minutes coloring a single picture. All children are different, but my 4yo twin daughters get bored quite quickly with it. Dot-to-dot is more dynamic — child need to search for the next number each time — so they like this part more.It would be really nice to have more variety in ‘games’.

must haveanother great practice book for the kids. you can check the images which my kids was doing. we simply encourage her to do with pencil and later on we erase and after some time she does it again so we keep checking on her improvement. she follows this apart from her pre school homework. she really enjoy this more than her school work.

Okay but limitedLike all Kumon books this is a nice, good quality book. But it’s nearly all dot to dots and colour by numbers. I would have liked a a bit more variety in “games.”
Cliente Amazon –
A tad repetitiveThis book is okay, it does have many activities, that progress from smaller to bigger numbers, but my child soon got bored doing the SAME activities over and over again (color by number, dot-to-dot, color by number, dot-to-dot, color by number…you get the idea) It might be better to get something a little more varied, that will hold a young child’s interest far longer.
Muito book ou mumber games 1-70Adorei este livro, meu filho está se desenvolvendo bem usando este e outros do Kumon.
