From the Writers of The Fallacy Detective
Written by Nathaniel and Hans Bluedorn, the same young men who wrote the widely popular The Fallacy Detective, The Thinking Toolbox is destined to be one of those rare must-have books for all homes where thinking skills are prized.
Covers Valuable Topics
Lessons cover (1) When it is dumb to argue, (2) Using the scientific method, (3) Five rules of brainstorming, (4) Who has a reason to lie? (5) How to analyze opposing viewpoints, (6) How to analyze evidence and sources, (7) How to list reasons why you believe something, and much more.
Humorous and Down to Earth
Once again these brothers have taken what could be an intimidating topic and brought it down to earth. The humorous illustrations give this book a friendly feel. It was written with the teen in mind, but I didn't hesitate to use this with our then eleven-year-old. The concepts are vital and with discussion could easily be within most preteens' grasp.

Timberdoodle's 2014 Seventh-Grade Curriculum Kit!
This book is like a toolbox, full of different kinds of tools you can use for different thinking tasks. Just as you use the wrench in a regular tool box to fix the sink, so you can use the tools provided in this book to solve thinking problems.
