Covering the curriculum set out by the Ministry of Education, the 300-page interactive workbook covers ABCs, numbers, phonics, sorting and matching and contains 2 pages of stickers; a children’s favourite. In the right hands,the Brain Quest Workbook is a very powerful tool.

“Workman Publishing and Brain Quest are so glad to be able to support this important endeavor. Every child
should have the opportunity to learn to the best of their ability, and to have products at their disposal to make
that learning fun.”

Erika Tucker, Export Manager for Workman Publishing Company & Brain Quest Workbooks, Program Sponsor

“You see how happy they are to see you, you know, and the first thing they said was: stickers! When they do the work they  are rewarded and everything is in the book – the rewards and the work. This is very important to us because we have problem with some of the children getting their books, even a simple exercise book.”

– Said Acting Principal Karen Lewis, Lucea Infant School

“The BrainQuest Workbook for the 4-year-olds supplied by Books4Kids is age appropriate. The pictures are suitable for the children to relate to. Shapes, numbers, letters and matching activities co-relate to the curriculum. Hence, the children’s holistic development is focused on effectively.”

– Mrs. Whyte, Teacher, Providence Heights Infant School, St. James

“The BrainQuest Workbooks are of great help to the children. They love the activities and the teachers like using them in the classroom. Also, it is important that all the children have the books from the beginning of the school year.”

– Koren Alexander, Acting Principal of Montego Bay Infant School

“Our daughter has the BrainQuest Workbook at home and we use it with her to learn the shapes, the letters and the sounds of the letters. It has been helping her.”

– Ferone Foster-Williams, Parent Falmouth infant School
