The Never Bored Kid, Book 2 Review by Charlsie Swadley

The Never Bored Kid, Book 2 is a workbook packed with fun activities for your child. This particular one was for ages 6-7, but they have them for children as young as four and all the way up to age nine. They offer crossword puzzles, mazes, dot-to-dots, and many other worksheet activities. This book has 144 pages that are colorful but not overly busy.

This book can be used anytime in your homeschool day. It was not created for homeschoolers, but I think it could really be useful with a child who likes doing workbook pages. This book could also be used at other times of your day when you need a fun activity for your kids to do.

I personally really liked this book. My son loves doing workbook pages, so this was a good fit. Some of the activities are really easy, and some are much more challenging. My son was able to complete some of the activity pages on his own, and on others he needed some help. It was really nice to be able to give him an activity sheet and then walk off and do the dishes or laundry while he was occupied.

The only thing I did not like was that some of the workbook pages were a bit too easy. I think they could have added just a bit more of a challenge to them, and it would have made it perfect.

I think this workbook would be great for use with homeschooling, especially if you need to give one child some extra work while you are working with your other children.
