The book arrived with the boys after school. I was busy but took it out of the packaging and put it on the coffee table. Before I knew it the boys were half-swallowed by the book.
This book, Labyrinth, was so much better than I had imagined: it’s mazes meet eye spy. Each page contains a different theme, a different puzzle, and the activities start at basic and quickly ramp up the difficulty. The illustrations are colourful, whimsical, and sometimes dizzyingly complex. (And if anything is ever too hard, there is an answer key at the back, but I don’t think the kids even noticed.)
I had to separate the boys for a lesson and our friend had to make my son promise that he wouldn’t work on the next puzzle until the lesson was over and they could do it together. It was so wonderful to see them cooperating and thinking and decoding that I really hated to break up the party!
The book’s too big to toss in your purse, but if you’ve got a tote bag or like me you’re still schlepping a diaper bag, this book is perfect for waiting rooms and trips and any other place that requires kids to sit still for a spell. So far this book has replaced Waldo in our home, and that’s no small thing.
I received this product free of charge for the purpose of this review.
