This book is perfect for your preschooler!!! Hours of fun. Much different than typical books of mazes. My son (4 years), loves these because there are streets in maze shapes and many different themes of mazes. This is great practice for pre-writing skills. We always trace with out finger, then a pencil, and then a highlighter! This tip provides extra practice and makes the book last longer. This is one of my son's favorite activities. He would complete the book in one sitting if we let him. It is that much fun!

I just got my 5 year old this book and she loves it. Almost half of the mazes are rendered in a beatiful isometric view with decorations, while the other half are not as decorated but offer more challenging and complex mazes, so it has a really nice learning curve.

The quality of the paper is great

They are easy to medium for my 4 year old daughter. The ages says 4-6 on the cover of the book. I would say 3-5.

I have an independent 4 year old who usually doesn't want help but loves to do "schoolwork" so this book is a great middle ground. It is fun and easy for him to navigate on his own -- great for providing a little peace and quiet!

I am asked that question by my daughter (age 5) almost every day. She loves doing these mazes. I actually take them to church with us so that she can sit quietly and do them during the service. She likes figuring out how to manuever her way through the mazes. Lots of fun.

This book of mazes is recommended for ages 4-5-6, but we got it for my son when he was 3 years old. He had previously worked through "My Book of Easy Mazes" (for ages 2-3-4) and "My First Book Of Mazes" (for ages 3-4-5), so we were confident that this book - the next in the series - was the appropriate level for him.

I think if you're looking for a maze book, but aren't sure which level book to get, go with the one for which your child's age is the middle number, e.g., if your child is 4, try a maze book for ages 3-4-5. I think it's okay if the mazes are too easy at first. For my son, it was nice to see his confidence build as he had a sense of accomplishment after every maze he finished.

I like mazes because they encourage my son to pause in the thinking process to look ahead to see which path will pan out - this seems like a good cognitive ability to have. Also, it gives him a chance to practice his pencil grip, which is something I think about because I never corrected my daughter's pencil grip when she was a pre-schooler (I didn't think it mattered!) and now, as a 7-year-old in first grade, she still holds a pencil incorrectly (which makes her writing messy, and her hand hurts after even short writing assignments).

My only complaint about this book - and all Kumon workbooks - is in regards to the workbook's binding. The spine is thick enough so that when the workbook is open, the book and pages do not lay flat, making it difficult to write on them. For every new page my son works on, I have to REALLY press down on the binding to open up the pages and keep them down. My son could easily be self-sufficient while he works on his mazes, except that I have to be always nearby to push down the pages for him, otherwise he gets frustrated.

The kids are actually pretty bored with mazes, but I bought this book anyway because the graphics are so eye-poppingly beautiful. (I bought it at the same time as I purchased the Kumon book of Easy Crafts, also reviewed here on Amazon)
The kids were intrigued, and so was I, and have requested these mazes regularly ever since I brought them home.
As homeschoolers, it's nice to take a "maze break" with between formal subjects, and the mazes are neither too difficult nor too hard for either child. I would say the mazes on the front (the 3-d, full-colour ones) are pretty easy; I can usually solve them at a glance, but perhaps the 3d throws off the kids, because they take a bit longer than usual. The back mazes (single-colour) seem more challenging in structure, yet somehow simpler to solve because of their visual simplicity.
The paper is nice and thick, giving it a more important feel than most "throw-away" mazes we can find and print off the Internet (where there's no shortage of mazes). The full-colour graphics also make these feel like a special thing, not just any other printable.
The mazes do somewhat escalate in difficulty, but generally, I just flip through the book until each kid finds a maze he/she wants to do. There is a nod to variety towards the end of the book, with character-shaped mazes and direction puzzles on the back of some of the later ones. There's also a "certificate" at the back that we will probably never use - we don't need a piece of paper to tell us we've done some mazes.
In general, I don't think these are wildly educational, but I bought them just for fun, and indeed, they have proven quite fun.

My son is almost 5 and he breezed through this book way too fast though it was nice to see that he had to think about these before he did them. I bought a really big book of preschooler mazes at a wholesale club but he was able to cruise through that 200+ page book in a month of off and on use on the weekends. Both books cost the same. This book was defintely harder but after a week he had already gone through most of the whole book. I have twins so I had another book - yes, I buy two of everything - so this time I took that one apart (after boy #2 rejected it for the most part)and didn't give him the whole book at once. Made that one last much longer. A good choice and the mazes defintely made him think about how to work them out before doing them - something he didn't have to do much of in other books we tried. A good and fun book. My other son didn't seem to have the patience to want to put much time into thinking about the mazes before he did them so he had no interest in it after a few uses. He found it a bit frustrating which I found odd because he is my "must color within the lines perfectly kid". I would recommend this book but it makes me wonder if it might be a bit too easy for a 6 year child.
