Building on the skills developed through Kumon's tracing books, My Book of Mazes: Animal Fun uses an engaging animal theme to focus on improving children's fine motor control and spatial reasoning abilities, both of which are vital for later success in school. Ages 3-5.
This book focuses on helping children learn how to add numbers 1 and 2 to other numbers. This very basic mathematic skill cannot be acquired through repetition alone. By using this book, children will be able to understand, without difficulty, the concept of addition by repeatedly tracing and reciting numbers first and then gradually shifting to addition formulas that include the numbers 1 and 2.
Long vowels are the most difficult part of learning to read and write. Using a combination of Kumons systematic, step-by-step approach and established phonics theory, this book helps children understand how different vowel combinations make the same long vowel sounds. Aimed at ages 5-7.

Karen Quinn has successfully taught hundreds of parents how to prepare their children for testing, and Testing For Kindergarten is her ultimate, comprehensive guide to having fun while teaching to the underlying abilities every test assesses. Whether your child is going to a private kindergarten or a public school, he or she will most likely be tested—and placed in classrooms according to those results. But information about intelligence tests is closely guarded, and it can be difficult to understand what your kids need to know. As an expert who has successfully taught hundreds of parents how to work with their own children, Karen Quinn has written the ultimate guide to preparing your child for kindergarten testing. The activities she suggests are not about “teaching to the test.” They are about having fun while teaching to the underlying abilities every test assesses. From the “right” way to have a conversation to natural ways to bring out your child’s inner math geek, Quinn shares the techniques that every parent can do with their kids to give them the best chance to succeed in school and beyond. It’s just good parenting—and better test scores are icing on the cake.
