Puzzle Books Perfect Summer Fun!
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.
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.
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.
