I bought this for my ten-year-old whose maths brain just doesn't understand English! This book helps to find the patterns and logic of sequencing sentences by the use of colour and example sentences being broken down to their smallest parts ie noun, adverb, adjective etc. Excellent reference for those of us who have forgotten it from our school days! The book is well laid out and topics are signposted throughout the book, gradually getting more complicated. I've also used it for my 13-year-old as she doesn't have text books to refer to!
