Thoughts on The Tricky Riddles Book for Smart Kids

Love it!

It's a slim paperback and fits nicely in my bag so no more pulling up the same ol' riddles on the internet with 100s of ads on the page.  We can just get the book out and flick to a new section.

The whole family can get involved and we leave our book laying around so anyone can just pick it up and start asking riddles.  My son then fills in the answers and that way we don't repeat ourselves anytime soon.
Max reading out Riddles

Not only is this book good fun but it also prompts conversations and some of the riddles leave us going off on tangents and reminiscing when we hear one that we've heard many years ago.

Some of the best riddles are easy to remember and will stay with my son, starting his own memories of riddles while he's young, and that I love!

I think it's a great book and really did not disappoint.

  1. Sounds a great book. I really loved riddles as a child. I can guess the second one (won't post to spoil it for others), but still trying to think of the other two answers


Thank you for popping by - and even bigger thanks if you're showing me a bit of love by leaving a comment :D xoxo
