Visual perception is among the last skills a child develops, yet it is a skill that he will use for a lifetime. Whether your child is reading, finishing a puzzle, or doing open heart surgery, a proficiency in visual perception is mandatory.

Aimed at a younger child, these exercises are presented in a clear, uncluttered format, perfect for the easily distracted preschooler. With sections on mazes (Book 1 only), visual discrimination, and visual sequencing, along with five other topics, preschoolers will enjoy this so much that they won't know that they are learning.

Each topic begins with a pre-test and ends with a post-test so that you can marvel at the progress that your child made. The winter Pearl was four she loved doing "schoolwork" and Visual Perceptual Skill Building was one of the reasons why.

Visual activities include discrimination, form constancy, spatial relationships, figure ground, closure, memory, and mazes.

We've found this book also works well for older children who struggle with visual perception, what a blessing!

Answer guide included in the back of the book.

    Produces great concentration skills March 5, 2013
    Reviewer: Sunflower Seed  
    This Visual Perceptual Skill Building book 1 has only two books in its series because these are skills our children are learning as they just begin to read. We plan to continue with the next book in this series as my kids get older. This series and mathematical reasoning series and mind benders series are our favorites from the critical thinking company.

    Great for using with eye patching January 14, 2013
    Reviewer: Janice  
    While I realize a review has already been written on using this book while patching,I wanted to second all Regina said. I even went as far as to take it to my son's eye doctor to show her what we had been doing. She was so impressed, she wrote down the information and said she was going to order it for her children to do over the summer!

    Awesome product February 9, 2012
    Reviewer: Regina from WV United States  
    My 5yr old has refractive amblyopia. The Visual Preceptual Skill Building Book 1 truly seemed to help him improve his visual skills. I had him do the lessons while wearing his patch and/or having the drops in his eyes.  The book was a challenge for him! We would stop once he started to get frustrated with our progress. However, the next day he would ask to do more pages from the book!

    Review by Granola Mom 4 God January 4, 2012
    Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Timberdoodle's Blogger Review Team  
    Mr. Smackdown and I  went on a date to Starbucks.  Instead of chatting like we normally do . . . making up stories . . . he wanted to do school work.  Specifically, he wanted to turn multiple pages and finish his Visual Perceptual Skill Building (Book 1), that we were reviewing from Timberdoodle.

    He didn’t finish on our date, but not many more school days later . . . the book lay completely used and lonely.

    Does that mean it was potentially too easy, not age appropriate though the Timberdoodle website states that it is for ages 3-6?

    No.  I think the book is just that much fun for children – especially after reading some other reviews regarding the Visual Perceptual Skill Building workbook.
