Logical thinking skills are important in daily life. And you can definitely develop them. These Logic Puzzles for Clever Kids will help your little ones start in the right way.

The games and activities are organized in seven chapters: Sequencing (ordering things, finding what comes next); Comparisons & Abstract Thinking (spotting differences, recognizing shapes; Inferences (figuring out what’s happening, cause and consequence); Patterns (recognizing and building them); Analogies (how things are alike or unalike); Deduction (sort through information, draw conclusions, make generalizations); and Critical Thinking (with more challenging puzzles, following clues to do something). And the answers at the end.

The author introduces each chapter with a few lines, explaining for instance what Sequencing means.
What I really like in this book, is the Parent Prompt at the end of each page, inviting the child to go beyond the game proposed, and making the connection between this page and their real life, for instance. As an example, page 5 is about  figuring out which comes first between 2 pictures related to helping at home, like toys out of the box, and toys in. The prompt suggests the parent to ask the child how they help around the house, and what they do first, next, and last.

There is a nice variety of activities: (simple) writing, drawing, or figuring things out orally, with rhymes for instance.

The illustrations are simple, very clear and colorful.
In other words, another wonderful book that makes me want to go back to childhood!

VERDICT: Beautiful book to help young children develop logical thinking skills.
