Deadly 60 Brain Teasers

Deadly Brain Teasers: Book 2 - Steve Backshall's Deadly Series

Become part of Steve Backshall's world with this 24-page DEADLY book of BRAIN TEASERS, full of crosswords, wordsearches, puzzles, codes and quizzes about wild and lethal predators - an absolute must-have for all DEADLY fans. Answers at the back of the book.

For fans of Steve Backshall or animal fans in general, this would make a great activity for any rainy days this summer holidays. It has lots of different puzzles which would be great for all ages of children: there are mazes and pair matching games for the younger children and wordsearches and scrambled words for the older children. 

The book has lots of great puzzles, although I did find that the numbers on the dot to dot are very small, which I think will make it difficult for young children to complete. There are quizes which could be a starting point for further investigation and research, and illustrations throughout the book which could be copied  by art loving children.

In summary, I think that this is a good book to have in reserve for a rainy day activity. It contains activities for children aged 5-10 and can be used as a starting point for projects or research.

Thank you to the publishers, Orion Children's Books, for sending me the book to review.
