Timberdoodle's review
Children Need to Learn How to Think
In the last couple of years, our family has had the privilege of hosting a wide variety of children, for a wide variety of reasons. In every case, regardless of whether the child was intellectually gifted or at some point on the autism spectrum, we could see a need for that child to learn how to think.

Tackle Essential Perception Skills
Somehow parents have received the mistaken notion that if their children are proficient in the "three 'R's" they were successful, but that is woefully untrue. Children need to be taught how to think and how to reason; the sooner the better, as 75% of a child's IQ will be developed before seven years of age. Likewise, many thinking skills programs emphasize a couple of the essential perception skills, but until now, none had systematically tackled them all.

Visual, Auditory, Motor, & Comprehension Skills
Developing the Early Learner fleshes out all four fundamental perception skills -- visual, auditory, motor, and comprehension -- via a gently progressive sequence of enjoyable activities. This proven system boosts these important skill areas through 245 exercises in four straightforward workbooks. Very easy to use, this series of workbooks helps you discover your children's learning weaknesses while there is plenty of time to make improvements.

Designed to Hold a Child's Attention
Each book contains a diagnostic progress chart so you can track progress. Although there is a page or two that contains either a gun or a ghost, overall the artwork is charming and the activities are presented in a way that holds a young child's attention. Arizona State University tested this series of workbooks and found that 95% of children who took the program significantly increased in their learning abilities. If your child is able to manipulate a crayon, he is old enough for Developing the Early Learner.

Another outstanding component of Timberdoodle's 2016 Kindergarten Curriculum Kit!

Great January 13, 2016
Reviewer: Linda  
We like these books a lot. We have started the second one and they do progress nicely. I like that it does cover a variety of skills that are sometimes overlooked but are still super important to child development.

Hit and miss for us.... January 12, 2016
Reviewer: Sarah T.  
I bought the entire Early Learner set for my 4 year old son. Some parts are awesome while others weren't great for us. I wasn't expecting the pages where you have to prepare items on a tray so you have to check ahead for that. The pages are all black an white line drawings so it's not as visually appealing as some of the other workbooks that we have purchased. But I love that there isn't any time wasted on endlessly copying letters and numbers. We aren't ready for that yet and most workbooks for preschoolers are full of copy work.

Nice concept, poorly delivered November 10, 2015
Reviewer: Brandi  
I loved the idea of adding specific critical thinking to my daughter's curriculum, but this book just doesn't cut it for us. Some of the items are outdated (needing to know that a boot could be worn inside a rainboot). Some of the pages I think I very useful and other I feel are a waste of time.

Very Interesting September 25, 2015
Reviewer: Deja  
This has some very interesting lessons that I would have never thought about had I not seen the book. They are all very well thought out and brings out certain critical thinking skills that might not have been brought out in other curriculum. I also like that they give grades (correct number desired for each page) because my son loves when he gets all of them right and I add the number to the page. It also helps him to learn to follow directions since most of these pages are very specific on what is to be done to get a good score.
