What a tantalizing treat for young minds! Seven different thinking skills—relationships, analogies, sequences, deduction, inference, pattern decoding, and critical analysis—are presented in a format designed to appeal to the prereader. Lollipop Logic employs visual and pictorial clues to introduce and reinforce high-powered thinking. This one-of-kind tool gives wings to prereaders and nonreaders. This unique book introduces complex thinking skills without the fetters of lexical meaning. Lollipop Logic is the perfect instrument for many young learners. It is simple to use and easy for youngsters to understand. Best of all, it alleviates the encumbrances of reading ability for young minds ready to soar into the stratosphere of thinking skills far beyond their reading levels.

Lollipop Logic Book 1
I just received this book from my mother, an Academically Gifted Instructor out if our state. We were excited to see how my 5 year old picked up puzzles. He loves the book.

My only concern is with the answer key. For classroom use it assumes there is only one right answer for every child. Page 13, is a perfect example. He was to order pictures of an hour glass from start to finish. He chose all of the sand on the bottom first because "you have to flip it over first". 

In a classroom setting I worry a black and white answer key might bypass an abstract thinkers process.

I use the activities in Lollipop Logic as warm-up exercises in our homeschool. It is a terrific tool for encouraging mental agility and creative thinking. My seven-year-old daughter keeps asking for more worksheet pages, a request I gladly satisfy.

Perfect for us!
The exercises are just the right length; short enough that my daughter doesn't get bored and long enough to make it worth the effort! I love that there are clear instructions provided for each activity at the beginning of the book. This has been a gentle but thorough introduction to critical thinking problems for my four year old.

The logical/critical thinking skills of relationships, analogies, sequences, deduction, inference, patterning, decoding and analysis are covered in simple and attractive worksheets. Each page has only five or six problems, but it's the perfect amount for a little ones.
Review by: Cindy West, The Curriculum Choice - December 14, 2009
Lollipop Logic for grades K-2 and Primarily Logic for grades 2-4 are critical thinking resources. They provide worksheets that introduce and reinforce skills such as analogies, syllogisms, relationships, sequencing, deduction, inference, and others. The pages are clean and attractive to make these high-level thinking skills seem like fun. You'll be pleased with the connections your child makes and the excitement that these books produce.
