As a homeschool mom and owner of BRAIN-athon Emporium, my passion is to find books, software and games that truly challenge our children's critical thinking skills. Many materials on the market "claim" that they include critical thinking, but ultimately assume that our children understand the processes and strategies associated with it. I believe I have found the BEST materials that ENGAGE our children in deeper levels of analysis which, in turn, produces deeper understanding. The two most important elements in our products is that they are engaging and FUN while developing these life skills. As a result, our children become more thoughtful, independent learners who get their work done more quickly and accurately. Your kids are gonna LOVE this stuff!


We carry the entire line of Bright Minds materials from The Critical Thinking Co. Be sure to go to my website to find hundreds of printable sample pages and over 40 software demo downloads. Each download is at least a complete lesson. Find your favorites: Building Thinking Skills, Mathematical Reasoning, Mind Benders, Editor in Chief, Reading Detective & more!


Lovingly crafted for babies 6-to-24 months old, the program locks out the system and protects your computer and files, allowing your little one to touch any key at all.

All in different fun-filled and uniquely baby friendly environments - all they have to do is touch any key! 4 great titles available!
Demo video available on my website.
