Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jeanne K. Pettenati J.D.
Science brainteasers that can be used at home, on the road, and at school will keep fourth and fifth graders engaged as they learn about astronomy, biology, geology, and zoology. The brainteasers are packaged on colorful cards in an oversized deck with a nifty cardboard case to hold them together. The riddles, puzzles, scrambles, word searches and matching games can be used individually, with a friend, or with groups of children. One card asks children to match sets of teeth to the beast they belong to and the categories are polar bear, horse, person, and shrew. Another card asks readers to select the correct daily portions from the five food groups for a 10ten-year-old child. The cards are great for rainy days and school vacations because they stretch learning on topics the readers are studying or introduce topics that children eventually will study. The 75seventy-five smartly illustrated puzzlers, arranged in an attractive format, provide great value for the money. Answer keys are provided on separate cards. The author, a former schoolteacher, has also created the very popular Cranium games. Reviewer: Jeanne K. Pettenati, J.D.
