I purchased this book hoping for additional curriculum-reinforcing games that would enhance the learning experience of my English students. While the games in this book do just that, the instructions for some are rather lengthy; they may contain as many as ten or twelve steps. However, if you can work your way through the directions and the prep (cutting out and photo-copying), you will find the games to be fun and effective. The book is divided into four chapters: Reading, Writing, Language Conventions, and Listening and Speaking. Many games have extended learning activities (which is good for the more advanced students). Some of the material covers such things as defining vocabulary words through context clues, multiple-meaning words, root and compound words, tone and attitude in literature, literary genres, parts of speech, sentence parts, editing skills, literary devices (metaphors and similes), etc. While I do consider this book an asset, I doubt I will reach for it as often as some of my other books. I would have given it a definite five-star rating were it not for the lengthy, somewhat involved instructions of some of the games.
