I enjoyed the author's systematic technique while trying to explain more to kids. While the game is not straightforward for children, practice can go a long way. I find this a more effective solution to enjoy leisure time for young children. Further, math enthusiasts and introverted kids can add Sudoku to their book shelves. In addition, any child yearning to improve on mathematics can start by enjoying playing around with numbers in games like Sudoku.

I liked how the author included hints. This way, kids know what number can or cannot be included in a box, row, or column. The writing was conspicuous enough to avoid straining. The pages were colorful, making the game undemanding and electrifying!
