    Lollipop Logic employs visual and pictorial clues to introduce and reinforce high-powered thinking for pre-readers.

    Seven different thinking skills—relationships, analogies, sequences, deduction, inference, pattern decoding, and critical analysis—are presented in a format designed to appeal to gifted young learners. This straightforward, one-of-a-kind tool gives wings to pre-readers and non-readers who are ready for a challenge but don’t yet have the reading skills for more traditional critical thinking activities.

    Now with full-color illustrations, this beloved classic has been fully updated with refreshed activities, images, and text to help young learners continue to soar into the stratosphere of thinking skills far beyond their reading levels.
