Resource Review: Think About It! Series

By Amanda Werner

robot-cover think about itMost homeschooling parents that I know are always on the lookout for great books that will somehow interact with their child. I mean interact not in the electronic sense but rather to get the brain synapses working so that their child will put two and two together while enjoying the particular book. I fall in that category myself and enjoy seeing the process take place. It really makes it all worth it.

When Amy Leask designed her series of books, I believe she also enjoyed and understood the process necessary for children to become free thinkers, putting two and two together.

I was asked to look over, use and then tell others about Think About It! Let the Thinking Begin!, Think About It! Metaphysics, and According to Phil A Young Thinker’s Guide to Robots. I really had no idea what to expect from the books because as we all know some books are great while others are duds. So exactly what did our family think about these books?

Our family thought the books were pretty cool. Each book was set-up to provide a little bit of information, then complete a brain synapses-inducing type activity within the book’s pages. Then by the end of the book the brain should be throttling at max power with regard to that particular subject.

The Think About It! Series

Each book is 32 pages or less so that it is not overwhelming for either the parent or child. I like the fact that you could break the book up into manageable portions extending the life of the book into at least a week. However, if you have children like mine they will devour all of the information in one sitting only to go back again and again for more.

Amy Leask really hit the nail on the head and hits a home run on each of these books. Her Think About It! Series tackles the tough subjects that many people find hard to teach or explain.

In the Metaphysics book children learn about five different philosophers from the days gone by but, more importantly, they learn who they are so they can be free thinkers.

In the Let the Thinking Begin! book children learn what philosophy can do for them. They learn that thinking about things in new or different ways is not something to be ashamed of but rather revered for. Children really dive into what philosophy is, how they can understand it and apply that to their own lives.

In the According to Phil A Young Thinker’s Guide to Robots children can spark an interest, satisfy curiosity, or just enjoy some great kid-friendly information about robots; What robots really are, what they can do, what they can’t do, how they are made, and even learn some binary code which is used to program a robot.

How to Get Think About It! Series

Overall these books would make a great addition to any homeschool library. The books could add a bit of spice into the mundane. What I like best is that children love the books and they feed their mind, body, and soul.
