Customer Reviews

I already wrote that I was not happy with the book condition.
Karol A.
He went through 1/3 of the book in one night which makes me also believe that this book might be for 1-3 grade rather than 4-7 graders.
Jenny
This is a great book for kids to learn how to think logically and also great for building the spacial recognization ability.

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.

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.

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 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!

My son who is a newly 2nd grader really enjoys the book. He went through 1/3 of the book in one night which makes me also believe that this book might be for 1-3 grade rather than 4-7 graders. He did REALLY enjoy the book

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.

I bought this book and the level 3 for my 12 year old son. I am impressed with how well designed and organized it is. It starts with simplest steps and helps him to build up thinking skills step by step. This book has a lot of figures and shapes in it and involves a lot of drawing geometric shapes on dotted areas that is very fun for kids to do. I am homeschooling my son for one year and I use this book every morning to warmup his brain. The instruction are very easy to follow and my ADHD son actually enjoys working on it !!
