Great themed pages that distract from the fact that this is maths.  Found the illustrations helped his imagination and motivate

My daughter really struggles with maths at school, she's 9 and found this book a little easy to begin with and then more challenging towards the end. She's not a fan of maths but enjoyed the animal theme throughout, it made this a little more fun than other similar books.

First book I've seen using nice bright colour pictures on a theme - helps the fun element outweigh any trickier questions. Revision for my 8 nearly 9'yr old but I think some trickier questions coming up.recommended

Since my son started school a year ago we've bought numerous learning books-none compare to this one. 
My son was so excited to receive this book as maths is his thing and he certainly wasn't disappointed. The book is based on the current national curriculum so everything my son will learn this year is in the book. Each section is set out really well, the pictures and facts about the animals are useful at providing a small distraction when the work gets a bit tricky.
What impressed me most was how the questions are set out and explained making it easy for the parent to understand what the child has to do. 
My son said "I really liked doing this maths book, I liked learning maths and remembering the animal facts"

My son enjoys his work books and he particularly like maths. He is 7 but this was for 7-9years which was good as it would challenge him, not just being aimed at 7year olds. I liked that it supports the new curriculum, and some workbook still don't. My son worked through it independently, asking for assistance only when he wasn't sure of how to do something. He liked all the animal facts that were given to him throughout the activity book. It started off easy then got harder as he made his way through, but he liked that, as it was challenging. The answers were given at the back, there was also a quick test at the back, and a logbook where you tick off and colour in the stars of the areas you had completed. He enjoyed the roman numerals section, where it told you what numbers the symbols represented, then you had to work out sums.The hardest area for him was converting measurements. He learnt new things which was great and he enjoyed doing it.

This book was great for helping my son to learn. Also got to learn some facts about animals on the way. There is quite a selection of things to learn. He liked to do them and always wanted to do more.

This maths book has easy problem solving at the beginning, but it gets harder! The diagrams show you ways to work out the problem. I gave done alot of this in year 4.
The facts and pictures are fun, makes the booklet interesting.

We were delighted to get this book as maths isn't necessarily his strongest subject at school, so any help we can get at home that supports the national curriculum is always welcome. The book starts off with a level of maths that he can understand, but quickly escalates into more challenging topics. By mixing animal facts with the maths it helps with engagement and maintains his interest levels. I can see this book being used repeatedly over the coming years.

My son was initially drawn to the colourful chameleon on the cover. The pages themselves are likewise filled with bright, colourful photographic images of a variety of animals. He found the facts about these animals interesting. However, he found the problem solving a little dull. The only exception to this was the chapter on Roman Numerals, which was something different for him. Overall, I would say this is a good revision book, something to dip into occasionally as when needed.
