I bought this for my grandson for Christmas. Not only does he love it, my other grandchildren play, too, even my 4 year old. When they leave, it's my turn. English has always been my subject, but this game is riveting for me, too. There are different types of word games to play, besides creating words. Visually, it is helpful for seniors with lessened capacity. Imagine watching the movie Shrek on the big screen, then having to read it in black and white print in a tiny book. That is what crossword puzzle books are like for me, vs the pleasure of playing Bookworm Adventures in a full color display. It keeps one's mind active to do this kind of activity. Yesterday, a friend's daughter came over. English is a second language for her. She loves this game, playing it not only for fun, but to augment her English skills. I looked long and hard for truly educational games for my grandchildren for Christmas. This one has turned out to be the best of my video game purchases.
