Synopsis

Board Games by Desi Scarpone

Board Games have been a part of America for more than 150 years. They seem to reflect the political, social and recreational mores of the society and are an entertaining and enlightening record of the country's growth as a nation. This book will stimulate memories of the games you played in which you risked it all at the throw of a dice or the spin of a wheel. 1475 individual board games are presented in color photographs dating from the 1940s through the 1980s along with interesting text and their memorabilia and advertising. The man who invented the game COOTIE is featured along with his many other game inventions. These colorful gameboards, packaging and game pieces have become fascinating to collectors today. The updated values in each caption reflect the current market. BOARD GAMES is a visual delight which toy dealers, collectors and past players all will enjoy and cherish.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

Tracey Chorley

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.
