    I skimmed through most of this book and played a lot of the games for the picture books with my kindergartner. He really enjoyed them. I think he liked every single game we tried. He didn't like every picture book and one of the chapter books (The Search for Delicious), but the games were all fun (while still learning). I checked out at least 4 other learning games books by Peggy Kaye, but didn't have time to read through them. I chose to read this one since I love reading books so much to my kid I skimmed through most of this book and played a lot of the games for the picture books with my kindergartner.

I had already read most of the chapter books to my boys (Charlotte's Web, Winnie-the-Pooh, Pippi Longstocking, Stuart Little). I will try more of Peggy Kaye's books of games in the future.

    I love all of Peggy Kaye's books that I've read so far; I need to stop bothering with the library with these and just buy them all. Her ideas are fun, practical, do-able and interesting. She's a treasure for homeschoolers and public schoolers alike! I love all of Peggy Kaye's books that I've read so far; I need to stop bothering with the library with these and just buy them all.

    This is a book that we need to own because I can't do everything in it during the month we have had it from the library. I like how it ties things together and has simple games. Not something we'd do every week, but I plan on doing some of them this winter while we are locked inside.

    I liked it, but I didn't love it. While targeted for preschool and up, the majority of activities were not appropriate for the youngest audience, and it took more time than anticipated to find a good activity. Recommended for first grade teachers and families. I liked it, but I didn't love it.
