Games with Books: 28 of the Best Children's Books and How To Use Them To Help Your Child Learn--From Preschool to Third Grade.
This book shows parents and teachers how to play learning games based on classic children's books. The book features 14 picture books, from "Harold and the Purple Crayon" to "Blueberries for Sal" and 14 chapter books, from "Winnie the Pooh" to "Charlotte's Web." It provides a summary for each book and then offers three to four games that will keep children entertained while they are practicing valuable reading, writing, and math skills. According to the book, the games (89 in all) cover a wide skill and age range, require few materials, and can easily be played both at home and at school. In addition to its creative and "fun" approach to learning, the book offers a bonus: a selective list of quality children's books that no reader--young or old--will want to miss. (NKA)
