Feedback and comments about the book

"I enjoyed teaching and working with the Olympiad problems.It encouraged the children to think and apply concepts they've learned as well as to utilize a common sense approach to solving problems"

"Praise for the problem writers. How you manage to squeeze so much logic and thought-provocation into so few words is a real talent."

"The children and I had a very successful year figuring ways to solve problems. It was fun and challenging ... We're doing it again next year."

"It was an absolute joy to observe youngsters work with organisation and understanding. Thank you for all of your wonderful efforts on behalf of Olympiads for elementary age children."

"Attendance, practices and enthusiasm never flagged. No one lost interest ... I have enjoyed this second year of Maths Olympiads even more than the first. I'm looking forward to next year."

"Olympiad problems are a wonderful boost to thinking in the elementary school ... most worthwhile and rewarding for both students and teachers alike."
