Puzzle Books Perfect Summer Fun!


Hi Neighbors!

All of you know we recently took a trip to Chicago.  While there the younger girls and I spent time in the evenings working puzzles together.  Great family time!  We received The Complete Idiots Guide to Picture Puzzles Vol. 2, Puzzle Barron's Sudoku, Puzzle Barron's Logic Puzzles Vol. 2.  We had so much fun.  Also when one of their friends came over they spent several hours working on the puzzle books.


So, let's begin with The Complete Idiot's Guide to Picture Puzzles ($10.95).  This one has several skill levels.  You start off with easy and then work your way to advanced.  We love the ones where you have to decide what has been changed in the picture.  Believe me it is not as easy as you would think in the advanced.  We would get all but one or two and then have to sit there staring at the pictures trying to find the last ones.  Yes, there are answers in the back!  Did we have to use them?  I'll admit it, we did resort to the answers a couple of times.


Next is the Puzzle Baron's Sudoku ($9.95).  I will tell you up front, I personally do not enjoy number puzzles, but...my daughters do!  This was perfect for them while traveling.  They even do them together!  These also start out easy and work their way up to Fiendish.  They haven't quite made it that far yet!



The last of the books is Puzzle Baron's Logic Puzzles Vol. 2 (14.95).  Now, if you hated those math problems where you had to figure out how old Suzy, Johnny, Sally, and Eric were, that started something like this; Suzy is three years older than the boy whose sibling is 2 years younger than Eric.... you will not like this book. But, if you enjoy solving puzzles like this, grab this book and get solving.  There is a chart at the bottom of each puzzle to help you figure out your answer.


I do want you to realize that these are not just for children.  I enjoyed them too!  Perfect for travel, sitting out by the pool, plane trips, doctor visits, perfect for children to work on during long adult dinners, etc.  Just toss a couple in your bag with a pen or pencil and you have entertainment on the go!  You can even compete with these and see who can finish a puzzle fastest.

Now, the best news is that one neighbor will receive all three books!

Disclosure: I received no monetary compensation for this post.  I did receive 3 Puzzle Books for review purposes.  All thoughts and opinions are mine.

I am having some kidney surgery done right after July 4th so they would be great for me to take to the hospital with me.

We would love these! The older children can do them with me - my mind is just screaming 'NAP TIME ACTIVITIES!' when I looked at them.

The whole family would use these. We would probably copy the pages so that we could use them over and over again.

Cindy B (on rc/fb) ~ my mom and mother-in-law actually love stuff like this so I'd probably give them each one and keep one for myself, thanks.

Soduko is not my thing, but Alex loves them. I love the logic puzzles and these are great for summer pool time and travel time fillers.
