The Fallacy Detective - Revised Version

Easy to Use, Engaging to Boot
The Fallacy Detective is self-teaching, meaning no other resources are needed, but it is intended for children and parents to use together. It deals primarily with misleading notions. This is the most practical segment in the study of logic. Abundantly easy to use, and engaging to boot, we read The Fallacy Detective aloud as a family and enjoyed some friendly competition as we raced to answer the questions orally.

Recommended Age
Although the authors recommend this book for older children, Pearl was eight when we started it and we did not feel any of the topics were inappropriate - heartbreaking perhaps, but not improper. Your family may differ, so we urge you to stay one chapter ahead if you are using this book with younger children.

Even Reluctant Scholars Enjoy Learning About Fallacies
By using short chapters, clear examples, a touch of humor, and interesting exercises, even reluctant scholars will enjoy learning how to identify fallacies. A full answer key is included at the back of the book.

A Decidedly Christian Perspective
Presented from a decidedly Christian perspective, The Fallacy Detective contains examples that concern conservative families, like abortion and politics. The practice and terminology will lay a great foundation for all other logic study. 227 pages.
