Can You Find Me Kindergarten
Experts agree that riddles boost children’s intelligence by exposing them to critical thinking and problem-solving. Riddles can also improve creativity and are an excellent warm-up exercise for your kindergartner's brain. Can You Find Me will give your child ample opportunities to think and reason, with 100 mind-building riddles that introduce critical thinking and systematic analysis. To solve each colorful rhyming riddle, your child may need to identify similarities and differences, recognize sequences, classify objects, or interpret analogies. These are concepts found in most state and national standards.
Can You Find Me challenges require understanding two or more clues to deduce the answer. No pencilwork is necessary, as your child can either point to a picture or answer verbally. Can You Find Me covers reading readiness, science, math, and social studies and includes answers and a chart of skills developed in each activity.

These are good puzzles, however, they are involved words problems, so felt like I was handholding to walk him through these. I feel it would be better for a later grade when he can read and work through the problem on his own.
We enjoyed this book and it surprised me how many times my son just knew the answer right away, it made me have a new appreciation for his critical thinking skills when most of the time he likes to goof off, it helped show another side of him!
We used Can You Find Me for Kindergarten for my 5-year-old and he loved it. There were certainly some challenging parts to it, which was good for his growth and thinking skills. The art is cute and I appreciate that the book is in color. We used this book a couple times a week for the school year, which worked well for us. I would recommend this book to others.
We have really enjoyed this book and it has helped our little one tackle answering critical thinking questions she might not encounter in other books. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is some of the problems are just a little too wordy for a beginner reader so this item can not be done independently in our home.
This is a book of riddles/word problems. I love these because my 4 yo has a tendency to jump the gun and try to answer questions before thinking about the whole problem or listening to the whole prompt. These force her to consider each part of the problem and deduce the answer by crossing out wrong answers as she goes. It is an excellent way to teach deductive reasoning. She is building problem solving skills and strategies. Excellent logic skill builder as well. Some of them can be quite difficult though, so if you child is on the younger side she/he may need help thinking things through.
