About the Author

Barbara Gregorich is an educational writer who has published books in the Get Ready Series, I Know It series, and many other workbooks.

More About the Author

From an early age, Barbara Gregorich determined to be either a baseball player or a writer. She never thought her either-or belief would lead her to write She's on First, a novel about the first woman to play in the major leagues. Nor did she think that from fiction she would migrate to fact and write the award-winning Women at Play: The Story of Women in Baseball.

Even though she loved detective fiction from an early age, Barbara never aspired to be a private eye. Instead, she wrote Dirty Proof and Sound Proof, novels featuring Chicago private eye Frank Dragovic. Sound Proof takes place at a folk music festival full of theft, blackmail, and murder, and has received many five-star reviews on Amazon. Readers particularly enjoy the setting (as well as the mystery), and Barbara, whose husband plays the hammered dulcimer, enjoyed attending music festivals while plotting the novel.

Barbara feels at home writing both fiction and nonfiction, just as she feels at at ease writing for children as well as for adults. She is the author of Waltur Buys a Pig in a Poke and Waltur Paints Himself into a Corner, two early readers featuring Waltur, a bear who learns folk wisdom as expressed in idioms and proverbs -- but only after humorous results.

Lately Barbara has begun writing in free verse and other poetic forms. Jack and Larry: Jack Graney and Larry, the Cleveland Baseball Dog, is a nonfiction story for ages 10 - Adult. Told in free verse, the story shows the love between major leaguer Jack Graney and his bull terrier, Larry, and how the two worked to build a team that could win the pennant.

Crossing the Skyway is Barbara's first book of poetry. The collection of accessible poems contains both serious and humorous takes on a variety of subjects.

When Barbara isn't writing, she is either watching baseball games, weaving baskets, or living the life of a roadie, helping her husband, Phil Passen, travel to various gigs.

My son is going into 4th grade this year and this has been a great workbook to keep his brain active with some school work during the summer time.

Format: Paperback
This book covers not just reading, writing and math, but also science and geography. It is very colorful and fun to look at. But too many wrong answers. Since 4th grade math is a little more complicated than just adding 2 numbers so it's way easier to check kid's work with the answer guide on the back. I was not happy to see too many "no matter how many times my kid or I try to solve, still the answer doesn't match" situation. I even googled some answers and found out that the book was wrong. Also the book should explain what kid suppose to do more for Reading and Writing parts. It make my child confused too often. I personally disliked this workbook.

Format: Paperback
Given the number of high reviews on this educational atrocity I can only guess that everyone here took one of two tacts rating this book. They either blindly graded their children according to the answer key, in which case they're educationally crippling their children and should be ashamed, or they chose to ignore the errors and focus on the book itself that their children read. In that case they're rewarding an unethical company greedily cashing in on popular brand, and they should be excoriated for making a total disregard for proofreading okay.

The reality is simple: while the book has a good presentation for children and is a good source of problems, it's only useful if you, as a parent or educator, are willing to do all the problems and exercises yourself. You simply *cannot* trust the answer key. The math section alone probably has upwards of a 10% error rate, which guarantees a falsehood on every *page* in the answer key. You'll have more fun with the measuring examples. They provide a paper ruler with invalid lengths. If you make the mistake of allowing your child to measure with an actual ruler, you'll find all the answers in the answer key are wrong by on average 1cm. Absolutely brilliant.

I cannot express in vivid enough terms my loathing for this product.

I assign my daughter about 4 pages a day as an addition to her school curriculum. Not only does she love this colorful book, but is awarded stickers for completing chapters. When all the chapters are done, she receives her braniac award. This book is full of confidence building strategies, in addition to easy learning. The brain boxes on each page explains to you in detail how to teach the lesson, if the child can follow directions they will be able to self-teach. Good book for a good price.

18 of 23 people found the following review helpful By Robert Morris HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on August 6, 2008
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 4 (ages 9-10), was written by Barbara Gregorich, with Patty McGee serving as consulting editor. It is worth noting that McGee is a past winner of the Milken Foundation National Educator Award. The material consists of organized curriculum-based exercises that help children strengthen their skills in spelling and vocabulary, language arts, reading, writing, math skills, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, fractions and decimals, geometry and measurement, probability and data, solving word problems, social studies, science...and following directions.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this workbook for my son. He is finishing up the 2nd grade now and I wanted him to work on his skills through the summer. I "searched inside" different grade levels and found the 4th grade book to be more at his level rather than the 3rd. Given, he is an advanced reader and in a "3rd grade intervention" math class, which is basically a 3rd grade level class for second graders. I do think any rising 3rd grader could work out of this book, perhaps with a little help here and there.

We just received these workbooks a few days ago and I can't keep my kids out of them, even though they are supposed to be for the summer. (My daughter is finshing kindergarten and has the 1st grade workbook.) They have been finishing up their school work and diving into these. They are colorful and have enough different activities to keep them interested. I don't think I'll have any trouble getting them to work on these this summer.

I have read about the answer key discrepancies but I don't see it as an issue for us. I have had to check his work all year and it won't kill me to continue this summer.

I highly recommend these books but suggest that you go up a grade year. Otherwise, they are probably just reviewing what they had already learned the previous year. In hindsight, I probably should have gotten my daughter the 2nd grade workbook instead, but that is another review.
