The book has sections for Phonics, Spelling and Vocabulary, Language Arts, Reading, Writing, Cursive, Math Skills, Addition and Subtraction, Multiplication and Fractions, Shapes and Measurement, Time and Money, Social Studies, and Science.
Answer Key is in the back, and there are also "extras," like a colorful map of the US, cut-out Q&A game cards and motivational stickers.
"All kids are smart - though they learn at their own speed
All kids learn best when they're having fun
All kids deserve the chance to reach their potential - given the tools they need, there's no limit how far they can go!"
I agree, while presuming to add that children will learn more and have more fun meanwhile if, when completing various exercises, adults are involved. As a parent of four and a grandparent of ten, I can personally attest to the pleasure an adult will also have. Each volume in the series is a WORK book. Exercises are completed with crayolas or pencils on the page on which it appears. Correct answers are provided. One caveat: Resist the temptation to control the learning process as a child completes an exercise.
This volume, for Grade 2 (ages 7-8), was written by Liane Onish, with Jill Swann serving as consulting editor. It is worth noting that Swann was a 2004 National Teacher of the Year Regional Award Winner. The material consists of carefully organized curriculum-based exercises that help children to gain an understanding of phonics, spelling and vocabulary, language arts, reading, writing, cursive, math skills, addition and subtraction, multiplication and fractions, shapes and measurement, time and money, social studies, and science. Also included are more than 150 stickers, an all-new Brain Quest Mini-Card Deck, and a fold-out "50 States, 50 Flags" poster.
Here is a representative selection of exercises:
Girl with Curls
Write [the missing] "er, " "ir, " or "ur" to complete the words. (Page 28)
Spell Like a Shark!
Spell all the "ar" words [start, march, far, party, park, hard, cart, garden, harm, art, large, and bar] from the Word Box in alphabetical order. (49)
Fun at the Playground!
The words on the balls [below] are all pronouns.
Rewrite each sentence using the pronoun that can take the place of the underlined word(s) in each sentence. (77)

Hundreds of Gum Balls

Read about these important American women.
Write their names and birthdays on the time line below. (264-265)
Each of the volumes in this series (pre-K through Grade 4) would be an excellent book for parents, grandparents, and others to purchase and then share with a child at an appropriate stage of her or his development. No doubt there are precocious children who will prefer more challenging material associated with later grades but I think it would be a mistake to rush the learning process. Worse yet, to indicate little interest in it.
Congratulations to the Workman Publishing Company and especially to the editors of Brain Quest. How pleased they must be to know that their materials have already helped to nourish so many young minds and to delight so many young hearts and, fortunately, will continue to do so for the development of other children in months and years to come.
There is a writing section in this book that starts the kids off writing about the aliens in a picture. The alien concept is carried through several more exercises in the writing unit and it draws on the ideas your child has come up with based on previous exercises. In one lesson my daughter was asked to make up a meaning for a made up word and then she needed to expand on that answer by answering questions about it.
I particularly liked how this book doesn't just have one math section like many other books do. This book has five: math skills, addition and subtraction, multiplication and fractoins, shapes and measurement, and time and money. I like how there are "Brain Boxes" on many of the math pages that explain the concept that is being presented. I like how their approach is sometimes different from the way that I or my daughter's teachers have presented the material in the past.
There is a section for learning cursive writing. My daughter will not start writing in cursive for another month or two so we haven't used that section yet. Her class also won't tackle multiplication until closer to the end of the school year so we're holding off on that section until later.
We have used all the other sections of the book and I'm very pleased with it. The content is not too simple as is sometimes the case with these types of books. The presentation and the content are all great. It's a book that my daughter is excited to use. I've already brought the 3rd grade book for next Summer and will be buying the pre-K version for my younger child to use next Summer, as well.
In addition, I liked that it was a general book touching on a bit of everything. I'm a bit turned off by having to buy a Kumon book for each area (math, writing, ...)
