The Ultimate Puzzle Book for Kids Review by Jacquelin Caffey

Word Puzzles, Brain Teasers, Mazes & So Much More!
Jeff Sechler

If you’re like our family and spend some of your days in the car traveling here or there, then do I have a great puzzle book to tell you about today! Many kids love puzzles and The Ultimate Puzzle Book for Kids gives your kids a chance to challenge and entertain themselves on more than 200 games. This book includes hours’ worth of fun doing mazes, decoding secret messages, problem solving, drawing pictures and answering funny riddles.

There are several different themes in this puzzle book to keep your elementary student entertained such as Body Language, On the Farm, Ancient Egypt, Planet Earth, U.S. Presidents, Horseplay, Pirates and more. 0ith over 120 pages working your way through this book, your student will use his or her brain to solve logic puzzles or brain teasers. Many will make you think and even more will make you giggle with delight all the while learning is secretly taking place within the pages.

My younger three children aged 11, 8, and 3 years old and I enjoyed working throughout this book solving the puzzles. We normally just skip around from section to section working through the themes that interest us at that particular moment. We have a set of travel markers that we use in the book and I love that the pages are thick enough that the colors don’t bleed through. One of our favorite activities are the Sudoku puzzles, they really get us thinking yet we are having fun solving the squares at the same time. This book makes it permanent home inside our van and we pull it out while we are traveling or waiting on an older sister to finish an activity.

If you have a puzzle fanatic in your household, then this is the go to book for hours of quality, fun and games. I love that it brings my children together and they want to work through the puzzles together and I think this would make the perfect gift for a birthday or Christmas.
