I'm sure the Baltimore Catechism is great, but the New Catechism of the Catholic Church is excellent too. It is better to use teaching materials based on this, because it has a lot of more current moral issues in it. Plus, there are lots of teachings from Vatican II, which are very important.

I elected to enroll my child in a catechism class which used only the Baltimore text.
My son was required to read, understand and TEST on the entire First grade level teachings before he was allowed to recieve his sacraments of Reconcilliation and Holy Communion. I believe it was a good choice for us.
