The 5 Minute Brain Workout for Kids {Book Review}


Cynthia received a copy of “The 5 Minute Brain Workout for Kids” ($14.99 value) in exchange for this review.  Any opinions expressed here are honest and her own.


Worried about keeping your kiddo’s mind active? Love word games and puzzles? If so, check out The 5 Minute Brain Workout for Kids. This thick colorful little book has 365 amazing, fabulous, and fun word puzzles in 416 pages. Kiddos can easily do one puzzle per day….or more! The 5 Minute Brain Workout for Kids is geared for ages 7 and up (1st grade and up).

Concepts in this book include:





*Compound Words




*Homophones and homonyms

*Matching words

*Parts of speech


*Problem solving

*Rhyming words

*Silent words




*Word structure

*Word categories

What I really liked about this book is that it is so user-friendly. It begins with Level 1 and then you can continue to keep advancing up to Level 10. Each level gets a little harder as you progress so you aren’t just jumping into the hard stuff when you begin. It also bumps around to different concepts and keeps the brain really thinking. Some concepts are sure harder than others. Even my newly six-year old was able to work on pages with me. I think the book is challenging for all ages and as an adult, it even made me think and feel challenged. It seems to be a fun book for the entire family. Would highly recommend for the family to work on together, one or one or just kiddos who want to be challenged alone. Great traveling book and or book to work on while you’re waiting at a restaurant or doctor’s office als0.

The 5 Minute Brain Workout for Kids can be purchased at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and anywhere children’s books are sold.
