Bright, Colorful and Challenging
By egghead23 - July 13, 2008
All the fun of the Brain Quest card game in a colorful page-turning book. I got this one and the third-grade one for my eight-year old this summer. He's been working in it every day. The activities appear to be fun as well as challenging for him.
The book has sections for Phonics, Spelling and Vocabulary, Language Arts, Reading, Writing, Cursive, Math Skills, Addition and Subtraction, Multiplication and Fractions, Shapes and Measurement, Time and Money, Social Studies, and Science.
Answer Key is in the back, and there are also "extras," like a colorful map of the US, cut-out Q&A game cards and motivational stickers.
OK overview, but some inaccuracies
By B. Brown - October 12, 2011
I have found this to be an OK book for my young 2nd grade homeschooled son. It is a good way to touch on a little of each subject and give him practice following directions, etc. However, as he was working on a page about the phases of the moon, we found an inaccuracy. It calls a small crescent moon a gibbous moon. I thought that was wrong, so I looked it up. A gibbous moon is actually the opposite of a crescent moon, so we can see more than half of the moon. So as it's an ok book overall, parents shouldn't trust the book to be accurate always, but check information and answers themselves.
