Format: Paperback
Margie Golick, Ph.D. has teamed with a publisher to bring us a quick read yet fine selection of playing card games which reinforce learned skills necessary for young children. The playing card games presented are the work of a "master pedagogue" that teach or reinforce number concepts, visual discrimination, auditory memory, and other critical learned skills.
I can personally attest to the positive attributes of playing cards, learned skills, and my own children. My children acquired many of these learned skills by playing card games before the age of eight. Ken and Kathryn Grube continue to play cards today and often challenge their father in a game of cribbage.
ALL teachers and parents of small children should have a copy of this work in their classroom or at home. It will not take long before the children tell you about their favorite card games and challenge the grandparents to their favorites!
Karl W. Grube, Ph.D., Editor of Games By Grube

I bought this book because the author of Jump Start Math recommended it as a good source of card games that reinforce math skills. I love to help my children learn through games. This is a help to that. And I love the versatility of card games. My favorite game in here so far is called, "Speed." My 5 year old can play it, my 10 year old enjoys it, and so do I. I hate Candyland. I am always glad to have a game I can enjoy playing with little children.

Recently my mother was in the ER and I had to take two of my children with me. They were 13 and 10. They spent 5 hours in the ER waiting room. A baseball game was on the TV. (They found this boring.) And I had nothing of entertainment value in my purse. Not even paper and pencil for hangman! Since then, I have stocked my purse with with a few lightweight, small, fun games. i have Thinkfun's Mini Mouth, Thinkfun's Math Dice, and a deck of cards. Learning a few more of these games will make the deck of cards have lots of possibilities. I will be better prepared for the next time of hours of possible boredom!
