There are 2 editions of Building Thinking Skills Level 2. The first edition which has a light purple cover does not have the answers in the book. There is a separate book entitled Building Thinking Skills Instruction and Answer Guide that has all the answers and lesson plans. You must buy this separately. The 2nd edition is complete with answers and lesson ideas. This is the book that is pictured on Amazon. Be sure you know which book you are getting before you buy.

This is a great book for kids to learn how to think logically and also great for building the spacial recognization ability.

The problems are fun to do so kids won't feel the pressure, yet they learn so much which are not taught in regular schools.

I am frequently asked to recommend teaching material. The one series I recommend is the Building Thinking Skills. My children have had great success expanding their critical thinking abilities because of them. I have spent a lot of time reviewing teaching material, and I can honestly say that this is a superior product.

I am a homeschoolimg mom of 6 kids for 10 years. Building Thinking Skills is an exceptional program for kids to think logically. It is good prep for SAT and other testing. My kids enjoy it and ask to do several pages a day. It is a very LARGE book and will take a good school year to get through.

Definitely recommend it!

This is a very good book. Even if you teach kids at home with your own material, you will miss some of the things in this book.

As a high school teacher and mom of 7 and 9 year old girls, this is a must-have workbook. It's 368 pages of workbook including an answer key. The main reason I like this book is because it teaches critical thinking skills and logic in multiple subjects. Many workbooks I seem to find are only single subjects, but this focuses on developing and practicing thinking and logic skills in reading, writing, math and science. Additionally, each chapter breaks down the learning into a progression of critical thinking skills. For example, first starting out by describing shapes with specific descriptions, then moving to identifying similarities and differences, sequences and classifications of shapes/figures, then analogies of shapes/figures before moving into the same steps but with words and language. This workbook is the most comprehensive and holistic that I have seen. My girls enjoy it and enjoy the challenge of it. It can be worked on a page at a time or a section at a time depending on how much time you have. We worked on this book for my older girl and the red Level 1 book for my younger daughter all last summer. I have also seen this book used at several tutoring centers.

I bought this book for my son and I liked it the way it has been organized and different type of problems it has covered. It broaden the area of problems tackling skill of elemnetry schools kids which are not covered by any school educations.

I would have liked it more if they have provided a digital copy of additional set of problems along with this book to let kids do more practice.
