Other books like Lollipop Logic, Critical Thinking Co.?


Recommended Posts

My son loves logic/puzzle books, but does not have good handwriting skills. I'm trying to do more hands-on activities with him and to "go broad" but he really loves working through things like CTC's Mathematical Reasoning and Building Thinking Skills, and Lollipop Logic. He's blasted through a few levels of each and I'm looking to diversify our collection, both to add interest/challenge and to slow him down somewhat (he's 3).
