Around the World Mazes
Around the World Mazes
What child doesn’t love the challenge of mazes? With Around the World Mazes, your child will travel easily through the busy streets of Venice, journey across the world with increasingly difficult mazes, and then he will reach the most difficult maze of all, a circuit through a small African city.
These colorful mazes allow him the opportunity to practice basic pencil control in an enjoyable, exciting way. And because mazes are naturally absorbing, they help your child acquire the ability to reason, interpret, understand, and concentrate, some of the bedrock essentials for later academics.
Because each culture sets its own standards in terms of modesty, conservative families may want to add a touch of white-out to a page or two.
From the Publisher:
Travel from the Amazon and the Antarctic to the Himalayas and Hollywood with this entertaining selection of mazes from across the globe. Each maze is more challenging than the last, from taking a ramble in Rio de Janeiro to touring the Norwegian fjiords or finding your way in a Moroccan market. All the answers are at the back of the book.

”In this amazing book, Around the World Mazes, there are so many different places to go through while having the enjoyment of mazes. The best part is that this book is filled with hours of places to talk about.”Read the Review
My son likes to looks at the pictures in the book as he does the mazes. The illustrations are nice, lots of color! I felt like it worked better towards the end of kindergarten.
This is a fun book that we added to our Geography curriculum. It makes it a fun topic as we cover different regions we get to do a maze. The mazes are a little difficult for my child (age 5) but the challange is good.
Our kindergartener loves the mazes and I enjoy reading the short explanation of the illustrations with her. Stimulates some critical thinking and incorporates history/geography.
Anytime my son wasn't reading to begin the school day I'd whip this out and it was off to the races. The only thing I didnt like was that the maze didnt always seem to line up on the next page, but my son didnt seem to mind at all so....win!
This book doubles as logic (solving the maze) and an intro to social studies as it sometimes references specific places in the world, so you could easily build this out into other activities if you wanted. Always make sure you check the info for each puzzle as some mazes have specific rules.
