If your child needs "proofreading" practice in context, this book accomplishes the task. I always have my students do these, especially the Level C books for high school.
We recently used Editor in Chief C-2 for an intensive grammar and punctuation review for our sons. Every day for an hour or two we went through several lessons together. The boys took turns proofreading the paragraph and finding the grammar and punctuation errors. When they seemed stumped, I read and explained the rule from the third section of the book. As the boys found the errors I asked them to give an explanation. This reinforced everything they learned and reviewed.
One son unconsciously corrected the errors as he read. When you proofread, you have to overcome that tendency of your brain to "fix" what you are reading. You're never too old to learn. I finally connected the dots when we did Editor in Chief and understand a comma splice.
