This isn't an adult book, so some of the advice (how to make money, pawns, etc) might make grown-ups cringe and cry out that it is too crude or unfinished. So what? We're talking make-believe.
Buchanan goes step by step, offering advice and warning where difficulties might come in. His technique is simple and obvious, and any child can modify his advice to suit (soccer, favorite movie, family things). He even includes a super book list!
I bought this book at a local bookstore and even though I have no kids and have nobody to play board games with I think this is easily a five-star book. You can even use it as a birthday party event (directions included).
This is a marvelous edition to a family, school or church library. You won't be sorry.
The premise of the book is fun. Instead of being a standard workbook, it's written in a style that mimics an actual journey, with "Postcards" that your child will fill in and "Guideposts", which are for the parent or teacher to read.
While a child reading and discovering this book will probably be gently tricked into thinking that they're doing nothing but having fun, as a parent or teacher, you'll realize how much they're getting out of the activity! They're thinking critically about their chosen book, finding ways to adapt it into a game using math and logic, and being artistic! What more can you ask?
This book is a great resource for kids who can't get enough of their favorite book, for parents who are trying to teach their child how to think critically about literature, and for teachers to help provide inspiration.
