5.0 out of 5 stars Big Book = Big Fun! September 29, 2001
By Linda
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book to use with my students to help them develop their visual perceptual, perceptual motor, and problem solving skills. The puzzles vary in presentation and level of complexity, so you will be sure to find something to suit. The kids are having fun, so they forget about the fact that they are also learning important skills.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of the Kids' Big Book of Games April 28, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book arrived on time with no damages to the books. I use this book at the recommendation of my occupational therapist to regain functional brain activities that were damaged in my car accident in 2005. I found the book very interesting and helpful for me. As it is for children, I also sent a copy to friends of mine for their children to have fun working with as they learn.
A great book for all the family.
Thank You
Jean Marie Naples

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun and Educational Book!! July 19, 2010
By Mimi
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is one of those "fun" books that children don't realize is a teaching tool also. We've used this book with students in our school district and it has proven to be a winner. I ordered this one for my grandchildren and they enjoy it tremendously.

I sent this book to my son at overnight camp last year (he was 10) and he loved it. When I asked him this year what kinds of things to send, he immediately remembered this book and said he wanted more like it.

4.0 out of 5 stars hard and easy with little in-between December 5, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I got this for my 10 year old and he liked it but not for very long. Some of the activities were much too easy for him and some much too hard there were not many that were just right. I am not sure what age this is geared to since it varies with too hard and too easy with little in-between.
