From the Back Cover
A wizard at turning learning tasks into delightful games that leave children - and parents - clamoring for more, Kaye offers a wealth of activities covering every aspect of writing. Children will maneuver through mazes to improve their handwriting, learn the alphabet by baking pretzels, play rhyming games to stretch their vocabulary, and crack secret codes while practicing their spelling. Even the most hesitant young authors will warm to writing when creating menus for monsters, thinking up orders that parents must obey, and composing stories - long, long stories - on adding-machine tape. The games are easy to play, requiring few or no materials, and are remarkably effective. While playing, children develop the skills needed to write clear and lively prose. Better yet, they may discover a true love of writing.

The book begins with a couple games for pre-schoolers and those who have just mastered holding a pencil. From there she gives a handful of games for kindergarteners and gobs of games for first through third grades. Each game has the appropriate age-range listed. Great book for summer work, additional fun practice and home schooling!
Thank you, Peggy, for writing it.
