"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

He is 3.5 years old and has already gone through the deck that precedes this one, so I got him the 4-5 and the 5-6 year decks as well to see where he is on those levels and start exposing him to more things he is not as comfortable with.
He still loves them and is doing great. I love that the presentation makes it like a game to him so it's lot laborious. He actually asks me and his dad to play the game with him. =)
A few of the questions are similar enough to essentially be considered repeats (for example, cards 56 and 71 both ask to differentiate between “lose” and “loose”). A few of the questions are repeats from the 3rd grade deck (for example, card 146: To change the type on a document you find “font” on your computer. True or false? This question was also asked on card 95 of the 3rd grade deck). A few of the questions are clumsily/confusingly worded (for example, card 118: If you recycle a document on your computer, it stays until the trash is emptied. True or false?). A few of the questions do not seem age-appropriate (for example, card 72: Who wrote Uncle Tom’s Cabin?). A lot of the math questions are arithmetic computations, rather than conceptual trivia (for example card 128: Multiply $3.86 by 52). A few of the answers are inaccurate (for example, card 130: Name the largest desert in the world. The answer given is the Sahara, but actually Antarctica is the world’s largest desert, by far.)
I have tried to find out if the company maintains a list of corrections but they don’t seem to. Having to fact-check every question really defeats the purpose of the product. But it’s certainly not worthless—it can still be a fun game, and it does provide lots of opportunity for further research and discussion. I may decide not to use this product in our home-school this year, and I will likely not purchase any additional decks, but since I have this one, I will probably use it as a starting point for developing my own research skills curriculum for my 4th grade kids.
This comes with two fan decks in the set (different questions). Very easy to put in my purse. We brought it to a relative's home and to restaurants.
