Keeping my gifted son's mind active with Spatial Reasoning Puzzles
This book is a huge hit with my 10 year old son. After working through his first puzzle he asked, MOM, can I please do more of these? These path puzzles are keeping his mind engaged and active. He is gladly humming as he's working through the book. 

There are 4 chapters with 12 puzzles per chapter, but he is also enjoying the blank grids at the back of the book so he can create his own path puzzles. 

This is an excellent book for any child who enjoys math, logic, engineering or thinks linearly.

Review by: Nicole Shobert, Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School - May 1, 2013
I would recommend this book for any educator who works with grade 4 students and above. The puzzles could be used for enrichment and small-group activities. They can challenge students at all levels, build spatial reasoning, and provide space for justification of their solutions.
