Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I got this book for my 5-year old to introduce her to card games that go beyond Go Fish and Old Maid. She took to it immediately. The introduction is wonderful, thoroughly introducing kids to the deck, methods of shuffling, and the rules of dealing. The variety of games is also nice. There are games for one player as well as for multiple players. Each game is accompanied by illustrated examples. This is an excellent first book of card games.
