This book is for all those maze-crazed children out there.
Reasons we LOVE this book:
1/ No words, no worries!
This book doesn't have any copy... and it doesn't need to! My son and I have been creating our own story as we go and it's been a fun way to flex both the left and right side of our brains! It was great for bonding and using our imaginations together.
2/ It’s not your standard children's book of words and pictures... It's an activity picture book, with an aim! You need to help the little boy solve the mazes to get back to his friends. Great for the analytical thinkers!
3/ The 10 mazes aren't easy to solve! Which is great because it gives this book the longevity it deserves and appeals to a wide range of ages. The solutions for each are included at the end of the book.
4/ Each maze is a piece of art! Through pipes, cacti, trees and so on, these mazes are so beautifully and intricately drawn by Aleksandra, as a grown-up, you just can't help but become a little bit addicted to this book too!
5/ It’s challenging! My 4.5 yo has solved 1 of the 10 mazes within the book, but he's determined to work them all out because he wants to get the little boy back to his friends. We have not been able to put this book down! We really, really love it!!
Recommended for 4+ even if it is a bit tricky for a 4 year old, it's a great way to get them into problem solving and thinking outside the square.
