Review: Challenging Mazes For Kids by Rockridge Press

 I picked this one up....well...who doesn't like mazes? As a kid, I was thrilled to get my hands on maze books and may have even had a phase where I tried to create my own. Plus, with my daughter now being homeschooled, I thought this might be a fun way to throw in extra fun or bonus moments. Now, I just have to keep myself from doing them alone.

I picked this one up to give an extra twist to my now homeschooled child...just for fun to add it (obviously not for learning purposes).

I loved mazes as a kid, and this book is full of bright and boldly illustrated mazes. While my daughter is 13, and I knew that none of these would really pose a huge challenge, it still makes her smile when I hand one to her for fun.
The mazes are varied, not only in the layout thanks to the illustrations but also a bit in how they're constructed. There is the inclusion of several '3-D' mazes, which do add an extra twist. Some are humorous, while others go for insects, plants or...well, anything really.
The solutions are all found in a section at the very back of the book, but these were unnecessary, obviously, for my daughter. It's a lot of fun to do these, and that's exactly what I was hoping for.
