The book is colorful and each activity is fun but teaches so much in the same.

My daughter just finished 1st grade and she will be working on this 2nd grade book as a review over the summer.
K. Mays
She loved the format, and I loved that she could work rather independently while working in the book.

All the fun of the Brain Quest card game in a colorful page-turning book. I got this one and the third-grade one for my eight-year old this summer. He's been working in it every day. The activities appear to be fun as well as challenging for him.

The book has sections for Phonics, Spelling and Vocabulary, Language Arts, Reading, Writing, Cursive, Math Skills, Addition and Subtraction, Multiplication and Fractions, Shapes and Measurement, Time and Money, Social Studies, and Science.

Answer Key is in the back, and there are also "extras," like a colorful map of the US, cut-out Q&A game cards and motivational stickers.

I have found this to be an OK book for my young 2nd grade homeschooled son. It is a good way to touch on a little of each subject and give him practice following directions, etc. However, as he was working on a page about the phases of the moon, we found an inaccuracy. It calls a small crescent moon a gibbous moon. I thought that was wrong, so I looked it up. A gibbous moon is actually the opposite of a crescent moon, so we can see more than half of the moon. So as it's an ok book overall, parents shouldn't trust the book to be accurate always, but check information and answers themselves.

Format: Paperback
This is one in a series of workbooks, each of which offers an abundance of learning activities, exercises, and games that are presented with superb production values. Appropriate to the given age level, much of the material focuses on basic subjects such natural science, mathematics, history, and social studies while enabling children to strengthen their reading, reasoning, and writing skills. The editors of Brain Quest believe that:

"All kids are smart - though they learn at their own speed

All kids learn best when they're having fun

All kids deserve the chance to reach their potential - given the tools they need, there's no limit how far they can go!"

I agree, while presuming to add that children will learn more and have more fun meanwhile if, when completing various exercises, adults are involved. As a parent of four and a grandparent of ten, I can personally attest to the pleasure an adult will also have. Each volume in the series is a WORK book. Exercises are completed with crayolas or pencils on the page on which it appears. Correct answers are provided. One caveat: Resist the temptation to control the learning process as a child completes an exercise.

This volume, for Grade 2 (ages 7-8), was written by Liane Onish, with Jill Swann serving as consulting editor. It is worth noting that Swann was a 2004 National Teacher of the Year Regional Award Winner. The material consists of carefully organized curriculum-based exercises that help children to gain an understanding of phonics, spelling and vocabulary, language arts, reading, writing, cursive, math skills, addition and subtraction, multiplication and fractions, shapes and measurement, time and money, social studies, and science.

I bought this for my daughter and as I was leafing through it, I discovered a major inaccuracy. In the science section, the phases of the moon are not all defined correctly. For a company whose motto is, "It's fun to be smart", you'd think they'd do a better job of checking their facts. (By the way, a gibbous moon is larger than a quarter moon, not smaller than a crescent moon.) I had to mark them lower because there may be other inaccuracies I have not yet come across. Good reminder to parents and teachers - always check the info before giving it to kids.

Format: Paperback
I brought this for my daughter this past Summer so she could stay fresh with all that she learned in first grade. I have used many workbooks with my daughter in the past and I am very pleased with the format of the Brain Quest book. The pages are colorful, and the activities are for the most part fun. Many of the lessons have a "Brain Box" that further explains the exercise or offers a different perspective on approaching the task at hand. The workbook comes with stickers that can be used on as rewards on the pages that are completed well.
There is a writing section in this book that starts the kids off writing about the aliens in a picture. The alien concept is carried through several more exercises in the writing unit and it draws on the ideas your child has come up with based on previous exercises. In one lesson my daughter was asked to make up a meaning for a made up word and then she needed to expand on that answer by answering questions about it.
I particularly liked how this book doesn't just have one math section like many other books do. This book has five: math skills, addition and subtraction, multiplication and fractoins, shapes and measurement, and time and money. I like how there are "Brain Boxes" on many of the math pages that explain the concept that is being presented. I like how their approach is sometimes different from the way that I or my daughter's teachers have presented the material in the past.
There is a section for learning cursive writing. My daughter will not start writing in cursive for another month or two so we haven't used that section yet. Her class also won't tackle multiplication until closer to the end of the school year so we're holding off on that section until later.
