    Seven different thinking skills—relationships, analogies, sequences, deduction, inference, pattern decoding, and critical analysis—are presented in a format designed to appeal to the prereader. Lollipop Logic Book 3 employs visual and pictorial clues to introduce and reinforce high-powered thinking. This one-of-a-kind tool gives wings to prereaders and nonreaders. Best of all, it enables young minds to soar into the stratosphere of thinking skills far beyond their reading levels.

    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.”

    An excellent supplementary resource for educators, homeschoolers, even parents and babysitters, Lollipop Logic Book 3 is highly recommended.,Midwest Book Review, 12/1/11
