I love puzzles and I’m guessing you do too since you are here! At Pages of Puzzles you will find both word puzzles and number-based puzzles, and a variety to choose from for each kind.

Puzzles allow you to relax while gently exercising your brain, providing a feeling of accomplishment when completing a puzzle. Working a variety of puzzles will not only keep your brain active but will keep you from getting B-O-R-E-D!!

Studies show that when you stretch your brain and try new things, you are helping to sharpen your mind. Using different parts of your brain and thinking in different ways is beneficial for keeping your brain functioning well.

The mental stimulation from working puzzles can help to fight dementia or memory loss and slow the onset of Alzheimer’s in older people. And it can help strengthen reasoning and logic skills as well as improve memory and mental capacity in younger people. So puzzles are good for you no matter your age!

Word puzzles are great for a child still in school who needs a curriculum supplement or just some fun, or for an adult who wants to spend their leisure time doing something other than just mind-numbing and brainless activities.

Number puzzles are great for keeping your mind sharp and helping your brain think in a whole new way. Without using math, these puzzles train your brain to reason and sort logically, letting your brain generate new cells even as you age.

Designed for adults and older children, the Pages of Puzzles word puzzle books are all themed so serve to “teach without teaching” and are a fun way to encourage learning at any age. The printable puzzles are on a wide variety of subjects and are all family-friendly.

Be sure to sign up for the Notification List so you know when new books are released. All the current books and their descriptions can be found on the Puzzle Books page.

I create all my own puzzles so the free puzzles on the site are a great way to check out the quality and caliber of the puzzles you’ll find in my books. I hope you will enjoy both.

Puzzles are a fun way to enrich your life,
whether you are 9 or 109.

Never stop learning, never stop using your brain!
