Is this a good game for a 7 year old? Is this a good game for a 7 year old? She's high-energy and loves math but getting her to sit still long enough to read is a constant struggle! Looking for fun ways to introduce and "disguise" reading.

My daughter has ADHD and loves math also but hates reading .I do have this game and although I am not saying children are able to play it,She never ever wants to play it and it has become another closet clutter toy.
I had more luck with the LeapFrog products in which she could wear headphones and follow along,besides the huge selection of charaters this compony has,hope it helps.

Our son loves math but HATES to read. He does love playing with this and plays with a group of us sometimes for family game time, but also sometimes will challenge himself to build words on his own. It is great for any child from at least 7 years to have to work on word building skills

I probably would not expect him to do it as a crossword puzzle. But........if he is just allowed to make as many words as possible it should be fun.

My 7 yr-old son loves it & recently spelled "Quotation" as one of his words! But a year ago he was playing & just spelling 3- & 4-letter words, so as long as they can spell & read, they can play this game. This also spurs him on to looking up words in a dictionary to find out if they are "real words" & also if he was spelled a harder word correctly. Wow! What more can you ask for from a 2nd-grader?

Yes. My 6 year old's first word was "warlord" followed by "piano" and "qualify." We have a strong reader. I think this a great way to build skills even if you play it in a more free form fashion, i.e. show all letters and see who can use 50 letters first, etc.
