With the Summer holidays just about upon us, many parents will be interested in these two offerings from Ibis Publishing, one of Australia’s newer publishers. Each book offers a hundred pages of puzzles, quizzes and games for children aged eight and over – a great way to fend off cries of “I’m bored” on car trips, or on days at home.
From wordsleuths and crosswords, to math and observation activities, as well as group games and games for the car, there is a good range of different activities in each book, and back of book answers are provided where relevant.
The cover of each book is glossy and slightly sturdier than many magazine-style puzzle books, making these books an attractive gift for Christmas or another occasion.
