Peggy Kaye

Farrar, Straus and Giroux

Kaye shows educators and parents how to play learning games based on classic children's books. Games With Books features fourteen picture books, such as Harold and the Purple Crayon and Blueberries for Sal and fourteen chapter books, such as Winnie the Pooh and Stuart Little. For each book, Kaye provides a summary and then introduces three to four games designed to help children develop crucial reading, writing, math, and conceptual skills. The games require few materials and can easily be played both in home and at school, and they cover a wide skill and age range.
