Logic Mysteries Stimulate Thinking
This is the second Logic Mysteries workbook that I have gotten for my son. He absolutely loves doing them. What I have noticed is that he will often ask if he can do them and once he does a few, it's as if his mind has been stimulated. The reason I say this is because shortly after completing a few of the mysteries, he sets off down a rabbit trail of some sort. 
For example, after a short time working in a book, I discovered him reading encyclopedias. When I said "What are you doing?" He said, "I wanted to know more about the states so I am reading the encyclopedias." 

Excellent product for helping to stimulate thinking and exploration in a gifted child.
