Synopsis

Kids Across, Parents Down Crazy Critters - The Puzzles That Kids and Adults Enjoy Together by Jan Buckner Walker

Small moments can have big payoffs in families. When you have an activity that kids and parents can enjoy together, youve got a chance to relax, share, and get closer. Kids Across/Parents Down is a simple concept that gained its popularity reaching millions of readers through weekly syndication in newspapers like the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune and The Washington Post. These are crossword puzzles with easy words and clues for kids to do across, and brain-tickling, age-appropriate down clues for adults. As fun as goofy games like Mad Libs, yet far more educational.
