This 48-page book contains several of our verbal deductive thinking puzzles. Unlike our other Mind Benders products, these puzzles are read to students, so they develop the logic, listening, mental organization, and memory skills vital to achieving higher grades and top test scores in all subjects. These award-winning, fun puzzles are also great for developing real-life, problem-solving skills. Students learn to carefully analyze each Mind Benders story and its clues, identifying logical associations between people, places, and things. The key is to make sure you get all the information out of each clue, by starting with the most obvious associations, then deducing the less obvious associations until everything finally fits together. Step-by-step instructions and detailed answers are included. Puzzles increase in difficulty.
