From the Back Cover:

Build your child's cognitive skills with fun and games!

.

Realistically speaking, teachers have only a few hours per day to actively teach our children reading, writing, and math. An involved parent can enhance that time in school and make it more productive, and evidence shows that children encouraged to learn at home make the best students in school.

.

Thinking Games for Kids offers you a unique way to get involved with your children's learning: play with them. In each game, your child will use basic skills in new ways to build a solid intellectual foundation. Some games are simple enough to be played while riding in a car, while others require materials and more room. And each one is more fun than the next. Simply put, this book will make your child want to learn.

.

This fully updated edition of the popular Thinking Games to Play with Your Child includes more games for older children and employs the latest brain research to help your child:

    .
  • Enhance comprehension and critical thinking
  • .
  • Clearly explain ideas and thoughts in writing
  • .
  • Improve memory through repetition and visualization
  • .
  • Understand the "language" of math
  • .
  • Develop phonemic awareness--a hot topic in schools today
.

We love to teach our children the techniques of hitting a baseball, kicking a soccer ball, and swimming in the pool. Now, you can have just as much fun helping develop their minds!
