Book Description

Kids love and are challenged by Mind Hurdles: Having Fun with States & Capitals in the United State - Interactive Quiz Book. Its interactive multiple-choice format not only makes it a favorite among books for children, but it is also a wonderfully fun game that painlessly shows your child which capital belongs with each state.

What does interactive mean? While it is multiple-choice, it is vastly improved over the typical multiple-choice format. When a wrong answer is given, the game keeps prompting your child back to the question until the right answer is chosen. The game also congratulates your child when the correct answer is selected.

Imagine your child being the first and possibly the only one in the class who already knows the states and their capitals? A panel of life-long educators designed this fun to read and fast-paced states and capitals game book. As with all the Mind Hurdles books, its contents are overseen by the Mind Hurdles Advisory Board.

As parents, we have all had the experience of trying to keep our kids occupied during doctor’s appointments, standing in grocery store lines, flying in a plane, or riding cross-country in a car. Like most responsible parents, you probably cringe at the idea of giving your child fluff to read. You can feel confident that this states and capitals quiz book is a 50 states game that will not only merely entertain and occupy your child, but it will also improve his or her mind at the same time.

NOTE: To ensure that your little one has the best experience, please use the INSTRUCTIONS (as this is a Kindle game and not a regular Kindle book, follow the blue links after the game starts ~ please DO NOT use the page back and forth arrows).

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun way to learn geography November 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm a history geek, so was curious to see how the author would incorporate basic knowledge about the states into a fun Kindle book. The answer: She created a bunch of quizzes - and who doesn't like them? Not only does she have the child (and parent) guess the capital of each state, she also tells the state's nickname. And, if the answer is incorrect, you get to go back and try again. I thought it was a fun way to learn U.S. geography - and recommend it if you're looking for a quiz-based approach to states and capitals.

First, I admit the geography was one of my worst subjects in school. So I was pretty pleased with how well I did with this simple quiz. I admit I enjoyed the challenge. Highly recommend!

The girls really enjoyed this little book. They are in first and third and just learning the capital. The youngest was most interested in the state nicknames.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very easy to use January 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Children will find this easy to use. Feedback is provided after each answer which encourages the child to continue. Only downside is that it didn't go through every state.

There's nothing here but rote practice of state and capital names. No interactive stuff, no interesting facts, no pictures to hold your interest.

2.0 out of 5 stars I really don't like the "interactive" idea
It sounds nice, but in reality, it interferes with normal kindle use. I'd rather just read something. or questions on one page, answer later. It's awkward to use/read/

More About the Author

With over forty years experience teaching children and with five grandchildren, I'm constantly amazed by what grabs and keeps their attention. I've noticed through the years that the activities that are most likely to accomplish this are the ones that require them to actively participate. For example, when they were young, they were much more interested in doing something they could pickup, move or point to as opposed to an activity where they had to simply sit still and watch. That's where the idea for Mind Hurdles came into being. The Mind Hurdles books are INTERACTIVE, and are thus more interesting and challenging.
