My Take on the Book
This book had a great variety of games that were both fun and educational. I loved the way in which the book was set up, as it was very easy to follow and to implement. We tried a few of these games with our youngest and she had a blast. She actually asked us to "do it again". which is always a good sign. As parents I am always looking for wad to incorporate learning and fun and this is one book which will assist us in making this a reality!
