My Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Every home needs a set of these books! Packed with games, mazes, brainteasers, spot the difference and more! Each book has 144 pages of boredom busters. Colorful pages that grab your attention. The age requirements are 8-12 but as an adult I thoroughly enjoyed them myself. Even my two year old enjoyed pointing out different objects he knew the names or colors for. It was fun seeing if I could figure it out before an 8 year old – and I wasn’t always victorious. Great for road trips, camping or at home – no WiFi needed. These definitely get you thinking!

I did receive these books in partnership with The Children’s Book Review and Dover Publications in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
