    We love these games!

    My 3 1/2 year old and 5 1/2 year old have had a ball with these card games. (Even the 18 mo old likes to pass around and play with the bright animal cards!) In the couple of weeks we've been playing, I've already seen improvement in the younger child's skills at matching and observing. Many of the games are based on old favorite card games, but played with the animal family cards included with the book, they are simplified and made fun for fairly young kids. My older two can even play some of the games together on their own after I help them deal out the cards. Several of the games also require sound effects, which of course the kids love! I wasn't sure my kids were old enough for card games yet, but this set has started the ball rolling for us, and we look forward to many more fun-filled years of playing as a family.
