Daily Mind Builders™ Wins Best Vacation Children’s Product from Dr. Toy

Daily Mind Builders™: Language Arts among Best Vacation Children’s Products for 2009

Monterey, CA, June 25, 2009 --(PR.com)-- The Critical Thinking Co.™, Award-winning publisher of educational books and software for all ages, is proud to announce that Daily Mind Builders™: Language Arts has been named as one of Dr. Toy’s Best Vacation Children’s Product for 2009.

Daily Mind Builders™: Language Arts covers skills such as analysis, synthesis, evaluation, and critical reading, as well as deductive and inferential thinking. Daily Mind Builders™ are meant to be short, 5 to 10 minute brain awakening activities that elicit higher order thinking skills.

Each activity page includes two puzzles. The first puzzle is a short, true mystery. Its solution requires careful reading, inferential reasoning, and deductive thinking. The second puzzle involves a process of elimination involving the meanings of words or relationships between words.

“Daily Mind Builders™ are designed to be short, critical thinking activities for ages 10 and up. They are great ice breakers and brain energizers, and from what I’ve seen, the parents are enjoying these books even more than their children,” said The Critical Thinking Co.™ Vice President Nile Duppstadt.

Dr. Toy’s awards were developed by noted child development authority, Stevanne Auerbach, Ph.D., aka Dr. Toy, as a service to consumers who want safe, affordable, educationally oriented materials for children for vacation time or on the road. Dr. Toy’s Best Products for summer 2009 are carefully chosen, using extensive criteria that Dr. Auerbach has developed over many years.
