My 3 1/2 year old is just getting into mazes and this book is perfect.
Patrice C. De Paz
It is a significant jump from Kumon's Easy Mazes book, and if your child is <4, I would start with that book first.
Educated Mama
When you open the book on the left is a more challenging maze and on the right is an easier one.

Kumon's MY FIRST BOOK OF MAZES is a wonderful introduction to mazes for children. They recommend this book for a child aged 3-4-5...well, I would find it hard to believe a 3 yr. old could do some of these mazes! My son is 8 and he had lots of fun with this book. Some were very easy, but some were challenging. Note the cover art is nothing like the inner art. The inner art is beautifully done, with the even page mazes up to page 28 being softly colored 3-D looking mazes of city streets, a forest, a farm a zoo, a garden, a racetrack, etc. The odd numbered pages have mazes in black and white and are flat, in various creative designs, and are more challenging than the 3-D style mazes. Mazes #29 on are of animals: work your way through a soccer playing fox, a doggie waiter, a pig out shopping, a lion king...very fun! The animals are done in black and white with colorful backrounds. A very nice book printed on heavy paper, nothing cheap and junky in the feel at all. I have heard of someone who had their child move a counter or plastic chip along the maze to find the way through, and then have them go again with the pencil or crayon. This prevents frustration with erasing because of wrong turns, and aids in remembering how you went through with the chip. When your child has done this book, they would probably enjoy Kumon's AMAZING MAZES, similar to this one, but a bit harder. These would make great gifts for a child who has everything. Kumon has many many wonderful workbooks that any child would love...check them out! Books on cutting, pasting, crafts, numbers. Enjoy!

We have many of the Kumon workbooks and love them all, but this one is my son's favorite. It's perfect for 3 year olds. It starts with very simple mazes and then each progressive maze gets a little bit harder. When we first got the book and I looked towards the end of this book, I thought there was NO way my son could do this at three years old. . .but the book gradually increases the difficulty level so slowly that it WORKS! This is the one workbook that my son BEGGED to do and would do three or four pages at a sitting! And now he's on the next "Amazing Mazes" book in the series.

I got this book today and my 3 (almost 4 year old) son finished the whole book (80 pages) in one day! He LOVED it! It looked a bit easy at first but I thought it might be more of a challenge as he went along. I guess he was more advanced than I realized and my only regret is how quickly the money was used up. I'm planning on purchasing the next maze book in the series. On a side note, this was my first Kumon purchase and although they are more pricey than books without color, I think they will be worth it for certain activities.

This book is pegged for children ages 3 - 5, and that seems about right. My three year old son had a blast working these delightful (and sometimes challenging) mazes. There are 80 mazes in the book, and there is a certificate of achievement at the back of the book.

Highly recommended.

The book itself is paperback but it's a hard paperback so it's able to withstand a little more punishment from icky fingers. The mazes are age appropriate, our four year old nephew was the receipent. He's a maze lover and this book is full of mazes galore.

We got the Upper Case Letters book first and the kids really seemed to enjoy going the work. They really love doing this book. It's more like play then school work for them. Our "I can't do it" 4 year old doesn't want to put it away! The progressive hardness of the mazes is so gradual the kids don't have trouble transitioning through it. The patterns, colors and characters are VERY kid friendly and easy on the eyes. The whole Kumon system really has me impressed!

I recently bought this book for my son's 5th birthday. He loves maze books. I also bought the Kumon animal mazes for 4,5,6 year olds. He was not as challenged with this first book but loved the animal one. When you open the book on the left is a more challenging maze and on the right is an easier one. Half of the right sided mazes are colorful 3-D looking scenes and the other half are animal shaped mazes.

Purchased for my niece and she loves these mazes. Each page is double sided with an easy maze on the front and a harder maze on the back. She finds the harder maze a little difficult so I place numbered clues throughout the maze for her to follow.

She prefers working with the the pages out of the book, which you can do if you work on it a little. Instead of cutting, you can pull the front cover all the way back until the seam is exposed, and remove the pages one by one without ripping any pages.
