Hi Jean,

I can't comment on the others, but Lenchner's book is fantastic.
I used a lot of those ideas with a 4th grade math club I helped run
after school; quite a few of them apply just as well for middle
and high school students unless they are very experienced problem
solvers.  The strategies are very general, and the book is
well-written. It's a better resource for parents/teachers than it is
for the kids to read themselves, I think.  There are some other books
(The Number Devil, and The Math Curse, and Math for Smarty Pants are
some that spring to mind) that are more fun for the kids.

 -Joshua, for the T2T service
