Fun, yet VERY instructive May 31 2009
By Jennifer Donovan - Published on Amazon.com
My son received this for his five-year-old birthday.

The first time we played it, he immediately asked to play again, which shows that it appeals to the target age. My ten-year-old daughter played with us, and while she tolerated it for family fun, she only wanted to play once.

The pieces are very sturdy: the cards are very thick cardboard. The box that it comes in has flaps and a flip-top insuring that the pieces will stay put, even if it falls off the top shelf of the game closet. Not that it would ever happen -- I'm just saying. . . .

The 12-sided die is cardboard instead of plastic, and it's the one element that I could see succumbing to wear and tear.

However, the fact that there is a die AND a game board/spinner (which is used if you land on a certain square) makes the playing of the game pretty fun for a 5-year-old.

This is perfect to build up sight words, since the same articles and prepositions appear over and over, and the verbs are simple ones. The noun cards have a picture with the word, helping children make that association.

In all -- I recommend this -- and I'm thankful that he received this as a gift instead of junk!

Great game for practicing reading and learning the parts of speech! Aug. 1 2011
By M. Jolly - Published on Amazon.com
I found this game very cheap at a local store and bought it for my three year old. I was nervous about if she would be old enough to play, but she reads on a high level for her age and the game was cheap. As soon as we got it home we started playing. It is a very easy game to learn and not one of those games that lasts a terribly long time! We probably played at least fifteen times before I was able to get her to take a break! She absolutely loves it, and I must say that it is my new favorite as well. Each part of speech is color-coded and there is even a cheat sheet on the instructions to help parents explain the parts of speech when your child picks one. The game is good quality. My only concern is that the dice included is made of cardboard. As long as you teach your kids to respect the property though, I don't see that being an issue. Great game for practicing reading and for learning the parts of speech. I think the company offers a whole line of educational games like this, that I will be checking out. I am very satisfied with my purchase.

One of our favorite games Feb. 19 2013

My children love to make the sentences as silly as possible. I love to see them learning, through play, about articles, verbs, nouns, prepositions, and adjectives. What a fun way to learn grammar and sentence structure.

Fun educational game May 17 2010
By C. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
My kids have a blast playing this game. It's very adaptable b/c you can build simple or more complex sentences. My only complaint is that the spinner on our game doesn't spin freely.
