Bonnie Lou Risby grew up in the Illinois woodlands atop the limestone bluffs across the Mississippi River from St. Louis. These woods were her playground where she and her siblings camped out, played detective, scout, hunter, etc. and enjoyed the beauty of the outdoors in every season.
Rob always showed a unique aptitude for logical thinking and became a published author at the age of 6 when he coauthored the first Lollipop Logic book in 1990. In 2010 and 2011, this extremely popular and long-lived book was revisited to produce Lollipop Logic Book 2 and Book 3. “Collaboration with Mom after all this time was a lot of fun.”
The logical/critical thinking skills of relationships, analogies, sequences, deduction, inference, patterning, decoding and analysis are covered in simple and attractive worksheets. Each page has only five or six problems, but it's the perfect amount for a little ones.,Cindy West,The Curriculum Choice, 6/8/11
