One of Peanut’s favorite subjects in school is logic. I can’t keep enough fun mind twisters and brain games on hand to keep up with her appetite for something challenging. Recently I was on the search for some new logic activities when I ran across several fun gems by Dover Publications that have more than made their mark.
Just today Peanut was asking if she could do one of her new logic books again instead of a brain game on the iPad. My response? “Of course!” And, this isn’t the first time she has made such a request. It’s happened a LOT over the past few weeks. Her favorite? Mind Twisters. But wait, I’m getting ahead of myself. First, let me share with you the four books we have been enjoying so much!
4 Log Books Your Kids Will Beg to Do
Here’s a quick peek inside the books for you to see what I’m talking about:
Pretty neat, yah?
Who are These Books for?
Dover Publications recommends these books for children ages 9-14, but my 4 year old feels like she’s big stuff when she does her Ultimate Dot-to-Dot Book, and Peanut, who is almost 7, hasn’t found any puzzle she can’t tackle yet. That said, Mind Twisters does contain math elements attributed to those with an older elementary education such as the ranking of decimals and fractions, multiplication, division and money problems. Impossible Folding Puzzles also contains a lot of instructions and would probably be best used by a teacher or parent who incorporated these puzzles and paradoxes in his/her teaching.
