From an expert in children's language development, a handsome collection of the games children play around the world.
Children love games. Learning to play games helps children grow and thrive, boosting language development and showing them how to cooperate and take turns. Games improve a child's physical coordination and offer a gentle lesson about winning and losing.
Language specialist Opal Dunn has brought together a fascinating selection of games from the United States, Europe, Asia and Africa. These are grouped according to type (for instance, "Easy Peasy Games" and "You're It "), and include instruction for parents, teachers and caregivers on how to demonstrate the games and how to manage children's play effectively. Charming illustrations, featuring an international cast of characters, capture all the joyful spirit of play.
