Review:

This is a fun book aimed at kids age 7 and up. It goes beyond boring workbooks, by giving fun little 5 minute brain exercises, that are perfect for a couple a day, while on vacation from school during the school year, or for an extra lesson each day (as there are 365). There are 10 levels of difficulty, so you can use it for multiple kids, or have your child work through the book and really work out their brain, while they learn new words problem solving, logic and comprehension! As you can see by all the sample pictures, the exercises are varied and fun! It also is great to work on their reading and instruction comprehension, by letting them work on the exercises by themselves!

This would be a great gift for traveling to Grandmas's house, for when the kids say 'I'm bred, which you know is coming, or to have at home for those boredom moments, or to add to the new year resolutions for your kids We highly recommend it!
