Product Description
Dear Reader,

Thank you for previewing the entire collection of 75 puzzles contained in The Little Book of Logic Puzzles: 25 Puzzles That Will Make You Think, Volumes #1, #2, and #3. I hope that you (and your students, if you are a teacher) will find that my puzzles both challenge and entertain you. If you are not a teacher, but just love to solve puzzles, I hope you’ll find this book enjoyable as well.

Each Logic Puzzle is part of a two-page spread. The first page of the spread contains the puzzle while the second page lists the answer and explanation. All of the puzzles are arranged in order of difficulty, from easiest to most difficult.

The download you have received is in a Microsoft WORD format. This gives you the option to print the puzzles out on paper or solve them on the computer screen. A third option, that of displaying the puzzles on an overhead projector as part of a classroom or public presentation, can help you and the other solvers see and more clearly understand how the puzzle grids can be marked with “X’s” (to eliminate choices that can’t be), and “O’s” (to show the choices that must be), giving additional visual cues that will help you to correctly solve the puzzles.

These 75 Logic Puzzles are great tools for developing reading comprehension and problem solving skills. Teachers, present them as an activity in your classroom to start the day, or at the start of a reading period. Use them to give your students a break from traditional reading exercises, while still providing them with a significant reading challenge. Consider adding a Logic Puzzle as an ungraded extra page to the end of a quiz or test, giving those students who finish the test quickly a puzzle to solve and something to do while others in the class are still completing their exams.

This combined collection of Logic Puzzles, Volumes #1, #2 and #3 contains all 75 puzzles for you to use with your students.

The origin of these Logic Puzzles dates back to the late 1990’s when I was teaching an Adult Basic Education class in a Federal Penitentiary. I needed something unusual to spark the interest of my students, and so I began writing and presenting these puzzles to them. When the inmates started debating with me about the puzzle answers, I knew I was onto something, for these men were excited about what was going on in their classroom, possibly for the first time in their lives. I hope your students will feel similarly challenged with what they’ll find in The Little Book of Logic Puzzles. Please email me if you have any comments about the puzzles. I’d love to hear from you.
