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.”Read the Review

”Preschoolers ages 3-4 will enjoy this book and the hours of activities it provides. Great for homeschool or early learning activities. Skills include colors, shapes, sequence, measurement, problem solving, logic, and much more.”Watch the Video Review
I love this book! My son is 3 and even though it’s easy right now for him it is giving him the confidence boost he needed.
I think we would have enjoyed this if it hadn’t been too easy for my son (3 year old) he already knew his shapes and colors. We really had to pick and choose what would be helpful for him. This is still a great resource if your child is younger or hasn’t learned their colors and shapes. Just didn’t work for us. The riddles are still tough for him and the measurement section was very helpful.
I can not get enough of this book. It is exactly what I was looking for and has so many ideas that I would have never thought of. I have always been a believer that our main goal is to teach our kids how to learn and this goes hand in hand with that though process. This book with help your kids for years to come!!!
I found this book to be more difficult than many of the critical thinking products Timberdoodle offers in both their preschool and PreK curriculum kits. My son enjoyed the colorful pages and variety of puzzles. He learned a lot from working through the book.
I love the way this book introduces fundamental vocabulary on which children can build their thinking skills. Things like curved lines vs straight. Seeing the way this introduces concepts has helped me better understand the learning needs of my children. I actually like the way they word things. I read the prompt and then explain as necessary so that my children develop a context for the proper vocabulary to eventually be able to do this type of work on their own without needing someone to explain it.
