Critical Thinking Press {Review}

Though I was not familiar with Critical Thinking Press, I jumped the offer from Timberdoodle to review their materials, especially after taking a peek at what they had to offer! And, boy am I glad that I did!!!

As a math major, I feel that it is important to be able to think mathematically and deductively and I was VERY impressed with how Critical Thinking Press has integrated this into the books that we chose to review!

Our third choice was Can You Find Me Preschool. I chose this for my 3 year olds, which corresponds to their recommended age of 3-4. The workbook is 112 pagesand contains bright, colorful pictures which proved to be engaging for my boys.

While the other two workbooks seemed to be designed for working independently, this book is designed to be used interactively with the child(ren). I would read the riddle and the boys used the clues I provided to figure out the answer. To get a better idea of the riddles, you can view the sample pages!

It never fails to amaze me how the older kids flock around when there is something special for the little guys! Everyone wanted to help solve the riddles!

While trying to figure out how I could take a picture of all of us working through the book, it dawned on me that I could let my daughter “teach” the littles! So, she read the clues and the little boys (and often times the big boys too) solved the riddles. While the boys worked on building their thinking skills, KJ got in some extra reading…and a bit of extra practice in patience!  🙂

Can You Find Me Preschool covers a myriad of skills and topics all while solving colorful rhyming riddles. Some of the topics included are: similarities, differences, sequences, classifications, analogies, and logic. Some of the skills include reading readiness, science, math, and social studies. It is valued at $16.99 and is a fun, colorful way to get your little one(s) thinking!

**********

Overall, I was VERY pleased with the Critical Thinking Press books! I would have to say that of the three books I chose [Building Thinking Skills Book 1, Mind Benders Book 2, and Can You Find Me Preschool], my favorites are the Building Thinking Skills Book 1 and the Mind Benders Book 2.

I love that the Building Thinking Skills Book 1 is a great way to help reinforce some of the topics we have learned all while preparing my daughter for standardized testing. The Mind Benders book is just plain fun…and that is not just me talking. My kids said it too!

Plus, my daughter loves using both of them and they truly are a great addition to her workbags!

Critical Thinking Press, we are hooked! Thank you Timberdoodle for introducing us to such an awesome new resource! If adding more thinking skills is in your homeschool plan, be sure to check out all of the curriculum, games, and puzzlesTimberdoodle has to offer! As always, if you haven’t already, you MUST sign up to receive their FREE homeschool catalog! I always feel like a little kid making out a Christmas wish list whenever I look through it!  🙂
