"If you're going to get just one title to teach your child how to think Building Thinking Skills is it."
 
"Building Thinking Skills® has improved our son's test-taking skills and made him a more logical thinker, which helps him learn more effectively in all subject areas. These are wonderfully effective books and I highly recommend them." - Epinions.com 
 
The Building Thinking Skills series can be used with children as young as 3.  The upper level of the series is used with high school students.  This series is also widely used remedially with adults.
 
Building Thinking Skills Levels 1 to 3 contain brief solutions at the back of the student book.  More detailed solutions, teaching points and extension suggestions can be found in the Instructor Guides.  These are pdf files. 
 
Building Thinking Skills Beginning and Primary do not have solutions in the books.  There is a Primary Parent/Instructor book as a pdf on cd.  You're unlikely to need this for the answers but if you're not used to asking your child "why?" this will give you the tools to help your child get the most out of the book.
