Building Thinking Skills
Start here with Building Thinking Skills Beginning. Happy, colorful illustrations make this a highly attractive program for any young child. The variety of delightful exercises ensures that this terrific book will give your child a solid foundation for academic excellence.

Recommended for age three, but we know many two-year-olds who would thrive on Building Thinking Skills Beginning. We suggest that you follow this book with Building Thinking Skills Beginning 2.

  • Reading, writing, and math readiness.
  • Develops analysis skills for academic learning!
  • The activities are developmentally sequenced. Each skill (for example, classifying) is presented first in the semi-concrete figural-spatial form and then in the abstract verbal form. Children learn to analyze relationships between objects, between words, and between objects and words.
  • Building Thinking Skills® Beginning level may be used with attribute blocks, though they are not required.

  • Answers are located in the back of this book.

    Beginning Thinking Skills Review by Homeschool Gameschool

    review by Homeschool Gameschool

    ”Activities are brightly colored, organized, and sequenced in small sections that are perfect for young minds. Preschoolers aren’t designed to sit still and do written work, and with this book they aren’t expected to.”

    Wonderful for Developing a Variety of Thinking Skills

    A great book with a variety of activities that engage young learners. My daughter just turned 3 and enjoys the opportunity to do school work from this book just like her older sibling:-)

    I love this program. Thinking skills are, in my option, one of the most important skills to develop.


    This is an excellent book. I've really enjoyed seeing my son improve at the thinking skills targeted by this book.
