Review by Acorns ~ Or Nuggets of Gold

Critical Thinking Press ~ Books for all ages

I have a few “The Critical Thinking Co.”  books that I have enjoyed using with my children over the years, but as they have gotten older, there are some products I didn’t own that I have wanted to examine in person. Timberdoodle graciously offered my choice of one The Critical Thinking Co. book for each child to use in exchange for an honest review. It was hard to choose, as Timberdoodle carries over 40 Critical Thinking Co. products. Read on to see what we ended up with and our thoughts…..

Finally, we come to Littlest. I didn’t even know that Critical Thinking offered books for the Pre-K crowd, so I decided to see what Math Reasoning Beginning PreK ($29.99 List Price) had to offer. This was very timely, because Littlest really wants to be part of “School”, and has loved numbers for quite some time. This is right up his alley, and he wants to do “my math book” or “my school book” most every day!
The skills covered in Math Reasoning Beginning PreK are:

  • Counting
  • Identifying
  • Matching
  • Ordering
  • Position
  • Comparing and Estimating
  • Addition
  • Suptraction
  • Locating
  • Writing
  • Grouping
  • Patterns
  • Geometric Shapes
  • Measurement
  • Data/Probability
  • Fractions

Each concept is introduced, and continues to spiral throughout the 235 pages of activities. Many of the pages are full color, which adds to the appeal.

My Littlest (he’s 3 years old) isn’t fond of coloring or drawing lines, so most of the time we just read over the pages that require coloring, and say something along the lines of “If you were going to color 3 cars, can you point to the ones you would color?” He thinks that is just fine. 🙂 This flows very well with the general tenor of the book, which includes pages that have instructions like: “Touch and count….” or “Touch and say….”
However, I can sometimes get him to color…. aren’t these pretty??? (And yes… he got tired of coloring before he finished the 2nd chicken, so he had a little help. I still think they are fun!)

So far I haven’t seen anything not to like in any of the books that we were sent, and I am very happy to include them in our homeschool days. As a matter of fact, I’m almost certain that I will be purchasing other levels of these books in the future. They are that good! 🙂

One more note~ be sure to check out any Critical Thinking Co. book that you are interested in on the Timberdoodle website~ most of them have sample pages up, so that you can get a feel for what’s inside before you buy.
Blessings~
