Editorial Reviews

Review

Lollipop Logic for grades K–2 and Primarily Logic for grades 2–4 are critical thinking resources. They provide worksheets that introduce and reinforce skills such as analogies, syllogisms, relationships, sequencing, deduction, inference, and others. The pages are clean and attractive to make these high-level thinking skills seem like fun. You'll be pleased with the connections your child makes and the excitement that these books produce. --Cindy West, The Curriculum Choice - December 14, 2009

I got this book for my 4.5 year old daughter and she enjoyed completing the exercises.

I think it is age appropriate for most K and 1st graders, and some 2nd graders.

We didn't try this book 1 initially; we had bought the newer version which at the time was Book 2 Lollipop Logic, Book 2 (Grades K-2). After we finished book 2, I really wished that the author had created more of these books. I would have preferred one 50-page book for each age group (e.g. K, 1st, 2nd, etc.). The enjoyment and the learning that this book created with a fun environment prompted me to order book 1 right away.

While some mention that book 1 is pretty easy, there are a couple more difficult areas in the book for deduction and critical analysis that I suspect most preK's and K's would certainly not get without parents help. I also disagree with the reviews that say this is better suited for preschoolers. I think it is age appropriate for most K and 1st graders, and some 2nd graders. The only area that might be pushing 2nd grade with a challenge is the critical analysis. Sadly, critical analysis was only 3 pages (one problem/page). I would have loved to see 50 pages of these, they were very fun puzzles to try to solve. These critical analysis exercises are at the very end of the book. Please NOTE: I did find an error in the answer section for lesson 51 (detailed later).

Yes, this book 1 was still fun and it kept my son's attention. Yes, we got through it in only a few sittings. However, it was very similar in structure to book 2, and we preferred Book 2.

The first 8 pages are ordering SEQUENCES (i.e. cubes being stacked, heart puzzle being assembled, fruit being picked from a tree, birds hatching in a nest, pumpkin being carved, snowman being built, glasses being filled, cookies being eaten).

I got this to be a supplement for my 5 and 6yo dd and they have done it with ease. It is not very challenging but is great for more independent busy work. I think it is too easy for my 6yo. In my opinion it is more of a preschool workbook. Highly recommend for a 4-5yo.

We have a variety of workbooks for our 4 year old prereader including Lollipop Logic. Our 4 year old, like many, has a pretty short attention span. He seemed to enjoy the variety of the lessons in this workbook. While recognizing each child is different, our son seemed to find the lessons on Relationships, Analogies and Inferences pretty easy for the most part. The lessons on Sequences and Pattern Decoding were a bit more challenging for him but not so much that he gave up in frustration. We will have to revisit the lessons on Deduction and Critical Analysis when he is a bit older. All in all, this workbook presents a good mix of lessons, both in skill level and problem types.

I bought this for my daughter mostly to see how she did with it. She was 4 (couple months shy of 5), and it was mostly easy for her, until the very end when there were a couple I had to talk her through a little. I agree with other reviewers that it is preschool-level. She really enjoyed it - although she is admittedly pretty easy to please as far as activities. :) I would buy it again because it served my purpose of assessing her ability, and logic ability isn't something I feel I can easily evaluate on my own.

My son is 4 yrs. old and he squawks at this book. He is an ABC, 123 king, but he is not used to be challenged. This is a great book because my son cannot get away with memorization, he has to talk and think things through. I love it. He cannot rush through the examples. It helps him to see things in a different perspective. I sit with him and I make sure he explains his logic. A great way to work on communication skills. I will definitely buy this series. By explaining his answers it builds his confidence.

This is a book of logic puzzle that kids would enjoy. It's fun! The best puzzles are the ones in the front, and the age range for smart kids is probably 4 -8. Both boys and girls would like it, and anyone who loves brain teasers will love it!

Great book to work on logic skills but it is too easy for second graders.
