Building Thinking Skills
These thinking skills books are among our favorites because of their tremendous scope. They develop four basic analytical skills (similarities/differences, sequences, classification, and analogies) through both figural and verbal problems.

In addition, there are problems dealing with deductive reasoning, map skills, Venn diagrams, mental manipulation of two-dimensional objects, and much more.

Studies have shown that students using these books have raised their national test scores significantly in both content and cognitive tests! What's more, these books are never boring!

Another outstanding component of Timberdoodle's 2016 Second-Grade Curriculum Kit!
Building Thinking Skills Book 1 includes answers, objectives, and focus questions.

Building Thinking Skills January 19, 2017
Reviewer: Jake, age 8 from Illinois  
Building Thinking Skills is one of my favorite books! There are a lot of different activities! I usually ask if I can do extra work in the book after I get my assignments done!

Building Thinking Skills January 18, 2017
Reviewer: Jack Mayer, age 7 from Yellowstone National Park  
I like it because it gets your brain working in the morning and it really challenges me and I really like it. I would recommend it to all 2nd graders!

I Need This Book March 4, 2015
Reviewer: MandyJHoffman  
Apparently, I need this book! It seemed fairly hard to me and confusing. It's not a book that I was able to open up and immediately know what to do next. The book bills itself as 1st grade level, Timberdoodle says 2-3rd, and I agree with Timberdoodle. This might be great for a summer challenge book to help keep young minds fresh during the "off" months or use it as a two year, slower pace material.

Astounding! January 17, 2015
Reviewer: Melissa W.  
I have been so impressed with range of material and subject matter this book covers. The repetition isn't overdone and the sequencing is perfect. The involvement of multiple subjects make this book a wonderful tie in and review for the curriculum and our son's confidence has soared! I was thrilled to see a book dedicated to critical thinking and I'm happy to report that this didn't disappoint, it exceeded expectations.

Building Thinking Skills Book 1 December 8, 2013
Reviewer: Scarlett M.  
We love this book. There is a lot of visual thinking involved, which my five-year old ds actually understands better than I do. Thankfully, they do have the answers in the back of the book. I would never have been able to come up with these ideas on my own. I strongly recommend this book as a part of encouraging your child to think critically.
