This is one of those books you want your library to have - it's worth reading, buit addresses too few books to really be worth purchasing. Kaye presents ideas for games to play with both picture books and chapter books, but since she has limited herself to 28 books, she chooses to go into rather more detail than is strictly necessary. Shirley Raines' Story S-T-R-E-T-C-H-E-R-S series has ideas for more books in each volume ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0374528152, Paperback)

Everyone knows how important it is to read with children. But how can you continue your child's learning experience and enjoyment of a story once you close the book?

In her engaging new book, Peggy Kaye shows parents and teachers how to play learning games based on classic children's books. Games with Books features 14 picture books, from Harold and the Purple Crayon to Bluesberries for Sal and 14 chapter books, from Winnie the Pooh to Charlotte's Web. For each book, Kaye provides a summary and then offers three to four games that will keep kids entertained while they are practicing valuable reading, writing and math skills. The games require few materials and can easily be played both in home and at school. They cover a wide skill and age range. In addition to her creative and fun approach to learning, Kaye offers a wonderful bonus in her new book: a selective list of great children's books that no reader -- young or old -- will want to miss.
