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.

This book of mazes is recommended for ages 3-4-5, and we got it for my son when he was 3 years old. He had previously worked through "My Book of Easy Mazes" (for ages 2-3-4), and within a few months, he was on to the next book, "Amazing Mazes" (for ages 4-5-6). I like that there is a series, so there is a clear progression of difficulty, and even if my son does not match the recommended age range exactly, we can still gauge which book is the appropriate next level for him.

I like mazes because they encourage my son to pause in the thinking process to look ahead to see which path will pan out - this seems like a good cognitive ability to have. Also, it gives him a chance to practice his pencil grip, which is something I think about because I never corrected my daughter's pencil grip when she was a pre-schooler (I didn't think it mattered!) and now, as a 7-year-old in first grade, she still holds a pencil incorrectly (which makes her writing messy, and her hand hurts after even short writing assignments).

My only complaint about this book - and all Kumon workbooks - is in regards to the workbook's binding. The spine is thick enough so that when the workbook is open, the book and pages do not lay flat, making it difficult to write on them. For every new page my son works on, I have to REALLY press down on the binding to open up the pages and keep them down. My son could easily be self-sufficient while he works on his mazes, except that I have to be always nearby to push down the pages for him, otherwise he gets frustrated. I don't know if the binding is a function of the paper quality - which is very good - or what, but I just wish the pages would stay flat when opened, or at least be perforated so they could be easily removed and used as worksheets.

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 is a good beginner book of mazes. The puzzles are big and simple and allow for a younger child to follow the path easily with a finger or a pen/marker. My child is 4.5 and had no difficulty completing them once I explained it. We are ordering the next step up so I am hoping for a bit more complexity to challenge him.

We started with alphabet workbooks and he was having none of it. It was 'me teaching/him learning' and I met with resistance and lack of interest. This maze book sparked something and I think the idea of 'winning' by reaching the end of the maze (that he completed by himself) was an a-ha moment of his. This in turn led to the successful introduction of other puzzle books and workbooks that eventually led to alphabet/math/writing/etc subjects. He is proud to finish one book and eager to start the next and for that I am very, very pleased.
