Through MamaBuzz reviews, we were given the chance to review The Critical Thinking Co. Balance Benders books.
"Move over Sudoku, here come Balance Benders™! You can use these books as quick, fun, logic problems or as stepping-stones to success in algebra. Students develop deductive thinking and pre-algebra skills as they solve balance puzzles that are more fun and addictive than Sudoku puzzles! Students must analyze each balance to identify the clues, and then synthesize the information to solve the puzzle. Try one—then try to stop!"

We reviewed their Balance Beginning book for grades 2-6. One flip through this book and I knew my soon to be 2nd grader would know nothing about it. I handed it off to my 7th grader, and she was able to work a few problems. It sure made her concentrate on the problems and think them through. This book is 46 pages with Balance Tips and Solutions included. I think this book is great, it will keeps your kid's minds going. Looking at their site and their other books too look fabulous! You should check them out if you have children eager to keep learning!
