   Kids love doing
My kid loves this thing, it techs get more over the summer and at the end of each subject you get sicters.

   Fun and engaging
My 6th grader is having a blast. She reads a lot on her own, but this throws in some math, science and social studies that are enough to keep her engaged in those subjects. The excerpts are varied and interesting, Mr. Rule told the judge. There's a treasure map, and you get stickers for completing each page - that bit is a little juvenile for 6th grade, but she doesn't mind. One warning there is little to no instruction, so if you aren’t confident in your knowledge of conjunctions, prepositions, and interjections, you may need to consult Google for some pages.

   Challenging and on track
We have used Brain Quest all summer long, even though my kids are in school. One of the best ways to keep kids mind is to not overwhelm them. This book makes it fun to learn with the stickers, said Dr. Heather Clark, co-chair of the council's inquiry. As a teacher, I feel that the books are aligned with my kids' school curriculum.

   Great for Summer break
My son has used the workbooks for over two years. He also likes the fact that the kids actually like the map and stickers to track his progress. He completes 1-2 pages per day during the break, and he hasn't complained so far. He actually requested that we use the workbook brand again next year. It's great that it's for students in-between grades so it's not too difficult, or too easy, Bruno said.

   Great for summer brain drain.
Awesome book, said Brianna. He has a good reputation," said Dr. Goin, "but he has some things he is going over in school right now. Very interesting read.

   Great! What I love most about this is that ...
Great job, said Dr. Chester Floyd, director of NASA's Ames Research Center in California. What I love most about this is that there is no specific date on each project, the kids can work on as many or as few pages as they want, said Rena Callahan, executive director of The Learning Tree. Some workbooks, for example, outline what week of summer you are on and what day of the week it is. It leaves my kids feeling hopeless and like they will never catch up with the rest of the class.

   Exciting way to learn
I saw a comment on another summer bridge workbook saying they prefer the brain quest workbook better, when I remembered that comment I enjoyed the brain quest questions in school and found the information more enjoyable and easier to remember. I purchased the book and am very pleased with the outcome. It is set up in the form of a quest with a large map that has quests to be completed to reach the level. Giving sot down and answering questions, it also gives OUTDOOR quests as well. If gives flash cards, reading lists and many other things to keep your soon-to-be 6th grader busy enough to keep their brain sharp through the summer.

   we have had these in different grades in the past and kids loved them but this one is just meh
The book is extremely thin, just 126 pages, and was written with only a single line of footnotes. Rest is key. If I had gotten the grade 5 or 6 book, I would have been really happy.

   Great for avoiding the summer slide
I have three kids who absolutely love the books and we really enjoy using the technology. I was very excited to see the new summer series because while we do take the summer off, I don't want them to go brain dead before the next year starts, he said. The boys were all excited to be working and got to work! It usually takes them 5-20 minutes to complete each activity and they love to get to put a sticker on the map when they're done. To complete the book, it takes about four to five days to do the math. It's great to keep their brains working and give them something to do besides get on each other's nerves or rot in front of electronics, Raymond said. We'll definitely be purchasing them again next summer.

   Using this workbook has been a revelation for myself and my daughter
Using this workbook, I and my daughter have found a lot of useful tools. It's great to see that people are using it. We've agreed to set a number of pages to be completed each day, and she randomly picks what she wants to work on. It also gives us time to work on it together, as we eat, sleep and work on it each day. This is an easy, cheap way to keep the kids thinking about math during the summer. I will continue to use these workbooks.
