Book of the Month:
Bond Brain Training for kids: Puzzle Books

Suitable for ages 8–11.

Whether they love to crack codes and solve mysterious messages, or they’re a wizard with words, boost your child’s brain power with these fun puzzle books to stretch young minds.

The challenges have been designed by the Bond team – who you might already know from their top resources for 11+ and KS2 SATs preparation – to develop children’s vocabulary, maths and problem-solving skills. All of the puzzles are aligned to what your child will be learning in school and will help them build the essential thinking skills that they need for academic success in a fun way.

Each book includes over 100 puzzles, with three levels of activities – Warm-up, Intermediate, and Tricky – including everything from crosswords and word searches, to Sudoku and number pyramids, to picture puzzles and more. With Puzzle Pointers to help them if they get stuck, full answers with clear explanations, and ‘How did you do?’ sections after each puzzle, your child can work at their own pace so they can see that they’re making progress – and enjoy themselves at the same time!
