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, Grade 3 (ages 8-9), was written by Jan Meyer, with Anna Shults serving as consulting editor. It is worth noting that Shults was a 2004 National Teacher of the Year Regional Award Winner. The material consists of organized curriculum-based exercises that help children to gain an understanding of spelling and vocabulary, language arts, reading, writing, math skills, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, fractions and decimals, measurement, time and money, word problems, social studies, and science.

I ordered this after seeing the fourth grade book in a local bookstore. My daughter is in 3rd grade, the store was out of that level, so I came to Amazon. I originally was interested mainly in the math section, as she has struggled in that area and, so far, it has really helped. The activities have been a good a match for her school curriculum: evens and odds, addition and subtraction with regrouping up to 3 digits, rounding, multiplication and division, fractions and decimals, measurement, time and money, and word problems. There are other one page and two page exercises thrown in (graphs and charts, lines, signs, etc.) that have been helpful, as well. We follow BrainQuest as she moves through her curriculum and it definitely helps.

What has pleasantly surprised me is how great the other content areas of the book are. When she was struggling with alphabetical order and dictionary skills, the BQ Workbook had activities for her. When she had a test on common and proper nouns, the BQ Workbook had a page we could use as test review. When she needed more study on main ideas, topic sentences, and supporting details, the BQ Workbook had activities for us to use. When she was studying the human body or the US Constitution or animal habitats or maps ... this Workbook has not yet disappointed.

The absolute best thing about this Workbook is that my child (age 8) *asks* to use it. She thinks it's fun. When she's "bored" either at home or in the car, she'll turn to this Workbook. I really cannot recommend this highly enough. (*Note: my pre-schooler also loves his Pre-K BQ Workbook!)

Format: Paperback
I haven't gone through the entire book myself, but my second-grader found two mistakes in the science section alone. On pg. 285, an alligator is shown as an example of an amphibian. On pg. 299, the answer (confirmed in the answer key) to the question of how many bones are in the hands and feet is 103. Even my child knew that an odd number couldn't possibly be the correct answer. A quick Google search shows that the answer is 106. This kind of sloppy editing is unacceptable in educational materials and makes me question the overall accuracy of the "facts" presented in this book. I will not be purchasing Brain Quest materials again.

I bought this for the summer before Third Grade. It mosty reveiws the Second grade work, but it keeps her sharp. Overall she enjoys doing a couple of pages a day. Many items set up as 'games' like word search or cross word puzzles, but these she can do herself!

I bought this workbook for my daughter who will be starting 3rd Grade this fall. We've been working on it a little bit everyday over the summer and she loves it! The lessons are very engaging with brightly colored illustrations and great examples. I would highly recommend this book for all 3rd graders.

Okay, so I am a mean mom and I make my kids do summer school work. I have use two other brand books before and my daughter has not like them. This one she loved. She was able to figure it out without me even. It has science, math, geography. I loved it.
