Mind Benders

Our kids really like this Mind Benders series of critical thinking books.

Figuring out the puzzles is one way to make working on reading comprehension, logic, and problem solving skills fun!

We have the 7-Book Set A series that has one book for preK-K level, one book for K-1, one book for K-2, and 4 books for grades 3-6 that spiral in difficulty. There's also a series of books for the 7-12+ range.

Jimmer is working through the preK-K book right now.
An example:

A finished one.

Here's an example from the first of four books for grades 3-6. Try it out!

Or how 'bout this one from the 4th book?

Have fun!

Our kids can't seem to get enough of them.

Be warned:
Once you hand over one of these books to your kids, please know that they won't: respond to your voice, eat, sleep, pay attention to their bodily functions, or (quite possibly) heed smoke alarm warnings.

They'll be on a Mind Benders bender!

I have seen these at a local homeschool convention and I have heard others, too, say they are good. They're look a lot better than the ubiquitous puzzle books.

Okay, I got stressed out just looking at the first 4th grade example. Are you sure these are fun? Or are your kids just super smart??? I think it's the latter!

Thanks for sharing, I am going to have to check into this for our kids.

So is Jimmer reading yet?
