We are only a few weeks into the course, on Lesson 5, but so far we are really enjoying this math course. I find it gives a good amount of review, without being too much review. Plus, you learn other neat facts along the way (like learning about eggs for one example). My son enjoys the stories. I find it gentle, but not easy in content, meaning that it's a solid program, approached in a gentle way. All the manipulatives you need are either included or can be found around the house. I love that there aren't pages of dozens of questions for each lesson, which just overwhelms my son. There are normally 3-5 questions per lesson. It's designed to be used daily, taking 1 week to introduce each new concept, and every week gives you review of concepts previously learned. Truly enjoy this!
