    Great Book for Learning Games at Home or School

    This is a great book for the parent/teacher looking for ways to increase a child's interest in practicing/developing skills such as reading, spelling and mathematics. There are no elaborate materials required and the games are engaging. Highly recommended for the homework-resistant child.
