“Help these archeologists uncover the secrets of this lost civilization!” the children’s book, Brain Candy: A Challenging and Fun Maze Book for Kids states at the top of one of its mazes.

~ What ~
This ninety-four-page paperback targets children ages six to nine years old who enjoy figuring out mazes. With no profanity or too scary scenes, over seventy-five colorful themed puzzles fill both sides of the pages with start and finish directives.

After an introduction with instructions, this book has a multitude of mazes for kids to follow through the open-area lines to accomplish a goal. Themes include a spiderweb, octopus, hog hedges, swimming with a porpoise, a digging dog, UFOs, leaves, bees, brains, pizza, popcorn, sea monsters, water park, roads, and more. The ending has all the answers.

~ Why ~
Our six-year-old granddaughter is bored during the stay-at-home coronavirus situation, so this is the perfect book to keep her busy. I loved the crazy animals, oddball items, and unique things to look at while trying to go from start to the finish line. Including the 3D mazes are challenging for older readers.

~ Why Not ~
Some of the mazes may be too hard for younger ones. They may be hard to view for some children based on their busyness. There are only six 3-dimensional mazes. It states it is for ages six to nine, yet it also mentions third to fourth grades so may be confusing for first and second graders.

~ Wish ~
This book may be too complicated for those with vision or concentration issues. I wish the mazes could be formatted from simple to complex so a beginner could start at the front of the book and work up to the harder ones to do.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for something to occupy a child’s time, this would be a fun source if they enjoy figuring out puzzles and mazes.
