If you have never heard of The Critical Thinking Co. now is the time to listen up. We LOVE them! We have been using their books for several years. They are not only educational but fun too!
For the TOS crew I was sent Balance Benders to use and to write up this review.
Balance Benders is written for children in 2nd-4th grades. It introduces early algebra skills and deductive thinking through puzzles.
When we got this book in the mail Ben (9 years old doing 3rd and 4th grade work) immediately wanted to start on it. So, of course if he is begging to do school I will happily oblige. We looked at it together and I explained it just a bit, then let him have at it. He nearly finished the entire book in less then an hour! Not only that but he only missed one! Maybe he needs the next book up. Anyway he loves these kinds of logical puzzles and I love the Critical Thinking Company for producing these kinds of books to help children explore and learn through fun and engaging books!
