Illinois State Board of Education, Springfield.; Learning Games Libraries Association, Oak Park, IL.
The catalog was developed to provide information about more than 200 recommended learning games and toys for all children, especially those with learning problems or physical handicaps. The materials listed provide educational experiences through game formats and help to develop gross and fine motor skills, math and reading readiness skills, cognitive skills, auditory and visual discrimination, communication skills, social emotional skills, life skills, and tactile awareness. The listings are organized alphabetically by toy name within these skill areas. For each listing, the following information is provided: suggested developmental level, suggested interest level, a drawing of the item, brief description, suggested uses, manufacturer and price, and skill areas. In an appendix, a chart indicates the toy's availability from eight distributors across the country. Other items contained in the catalog include definitions of terms, a consumer's guide to purchasing the toys, and a description of the Learning Games Libraries Association. (JDD)
