    Best of the writing word books in this seriesI just brought this book for my 7 yr old that is building his skills on writing sentences independently. We also own the 

    My Book of Writing Words: Learning about Consonants and Vowels (Kumon Workbooks)


    My Book of Simple Sentences: Learning about Nouns and Verbs (Kumon Workbooks)

    . Although this book is recommended after the other two, I am actually going to use this book first, then the “Writing Words”, and then the simple sentences. The nouns in this book are a mixture of long and short vowels, but one syllable words. It also contains a lot of the helper adjective words that are in the Dolch list (eg. big, little, short, long, etc). The “Writing Words” book contains a lot of blend sound words, but no helper words or sentences. The simple sentences book has only nouns and verbs in the sentences, but the nouns are more complex: eg. kangaroo. I give all three books 5 stars. I just disagree with the order that Kumon recommends.

    Very helpfulI pulled my son out of public school half way through the year because he was getting lost in the system. He is capable of everything at his level and even advanced in some things, but he was getting further and further behind. One of the worst issues was his handwriting. It was totally illegible… But he wasn’t getting much instruction or help. These books are fantastic for really simple and easy to understand practice. 2 months of homeschool and we can read his writing. I highly recommend these books.

    Nice for writing practiceThe Kumon books are perfect for my Kindergarten son who knows how to write but needs writing practice because his fine motor skills are still developing. The lessons are short (only 2 pages) but don’t “overdo it. They have really helped improve his writing. Be sure you purchase the books in order because they gradually get “harder.” I believe this is the final level of the writing series, preceded by My Book of Simple Sentences. It is hard to tell on the amazon website the order in which they progress. Even hard to tell on the Kumon website!

    Awesome book!I brought 

    My Book of Sentences

     for my 5 yr old to help supplement what he was learning in school about writing sentences. It was exactly what I needed. It was easy to use, and simple enough for a child to follow along. It helped build his confidence, which is exactly what we needed. When it comes to making the selection on which book to use, I recommend you go with your child’s abilities instead of the recommended age for the book.

    Great learning tool.This is a great learning and practicing book. It has just the right amount of difficulty for the grade level chosen. What is great about it also is that it is easy to find parallel subjects to whatever your child is learning in school..Comes with answer key that allows you to go back and review wrong answers. The stories for the reading comprehension questions are good too.

  7. Chandra

    Adjective bookAdjective book: Not to the age mentioned, very easy sentences,book introduce many adjectives..4 star for kumon series books,Most books are so so good.

  8. D. Huber

    this book is good for practicing sentences.I bought this Kumon book for my 5-year old twins to practice their sentences. One disappointment is that it does not have rip-out pages, but you might not want that anyway. Another disappointment is that the spacing for practicing writing is not uniform in size… some pages have nice large lines to write in, others have smaller areas to write, which are really a little too small for this age to work with. Otherwise, the book is good.

    I have been happy with all of my Kumon purchasesI have been happy with all of my Kumon purchases! They are great supplemental guides or summer bridge books. They are fun and help to break down concepts to more manageable bites of understanding. I highly recommend for homeschoolers or for mom’s who simply want to supplement their children’s normal school curriculum.

    Kumon never dissapointsMy daughter is getting more out of this than whats she is getting out of an 8 hour day in schoolThat says a lotWith that being said, just do it

    my book of sentencesas a grandfather teaching a child with some learning disabilities these books have helped and continue to help on a great degree, i am thankful for this company and all they do to help children…these books are great for school children when there is no school and you want to keep their brains working….

    Good handwriting practiceI use this book to help my six year old’s handwriting. Although there is mention of parts of speech and sentence structure, it really is most valuable as a handwriting workbook.

  13. Anna Watkins

    Kumon for the WIN!Purchased this book for my kid to work on in the Summer as he enters the 2nd Grade. Great sentences. I would purchase again.

    Excellent conditionThis book was in excellent condition. I am glad that I ordered it. It was not what I thought it was, but I still found a use for it. Thank you.

  18. Seeker

    A sentence copying book onlyParents need to be aware that this book is strictly copying very simple sentences and nothing else. Since this book is labeled for ages 6-8, I thought that this book would teach students to build more complex sentences by learning to add adjectives and fancier predicates in a step by step way. It’s not even great for handwriting practice because the lines are small and of differing sizes. What a disappointment.

  19. Onri

    Like itJust get rid of tracing the words and it would be better. I do like it using with my son.

    Kumon momI needed extra math and reading/writing practice for my kids in 3rd and 1st grade. These books are easy to understand, very systematic and kids love it. we take them along in the car even for short drives. It keeps the kids busy in the back seat. would recommend these to any parent that would like their child to excel academically. who doesn’t?? I’ve purhased about a dozen plus Kumon books from amazon already and intend to purchase many more.

    not worthI have followed the instructions and everytime less than three hours, the food is only little bit warm.(prepared in the morning, have food in lunch time)not worth it.

  67. swati

    whole book is like that. So returnedThere’s no space for child to think n write sentences. They have written in dotted lines…just write over that…whole book is like that. So returned.
