This delightful picture book is written for children ages 4 to 10. It contains a variety of games including competitive games from badminton to hopscotch. It’s illustrated with great graphic images. It offers interesting facts in simple language. Although the material appropriate for these ages, younger children will need some help. They will enjoy the book most by sharing it with a parent.
Students will encounter new words and concepts. They'll read about games to play with marbles, and ways to explore their own house and neighborhood. They’ll also learn to set up games that don’t cost money, and use materials around the house. Other subjects in the book include marbles, squirt guns, and snow games.
Most of the book’s images are colored photographs. These are most effective when read on a Kindle Fire, or the Kindle Application on a tablet device, or PC. They can be viewed clearly on black and white readers. Only the color dimension is lacking.
Children will also find answers to kid-style questions.
What’s that sound? Where did it come from?
Why can’t I play golf, too?
Teachers and home schooling parents will find this book a wonderful addition to their nonfiction libraries. It provides selected passages on an assortment of subjects. Science facts, history facts, and cultural facts are all presented for the young reader. Great illustrations bring the text to life.
