Synopsis

Barnyard Games and Puzzles by Helene Hovanec, Patrick Merrell

Kids love animals as much as they love puzzles and silly word games. Barnyard Games & Puzzles follows the success of Horse Games & Puzzles For Kids and The Petting Farm Poster Book . Full of lively drawings, it offers page after page of word games and picture puzzles, as well as jokes, riddles, and word play. Puzzle books for kids are often either too simplistic or too frustratingly difficult for young solvers. Barnyard Games & Puzzles was created by two experienced puzzle makers who have designed a variety of puzzles specifically for five to eight year-old readers. With nearly 100 puzzles, the book clusters simpler games in the front and draws the reader on to more complex ones. Connect-the-dots pictures and find-the-hidden-items drawings will entice younger children, while the mix of crossword puzzles, fill-in-the-blanks, mazes, word searches, logic puzzles, codes, and other games will provide hours of fun and delight for both beginning and more experienced readers. Each illustrated page has lots to look at and plenty of room for small fingers to write. A pair of funny farmyard friends wander through the pages giving directions and telling silly jokes. Barnyard Games & Puzzles is sure to appeal to country and city kids alike.

Reviews

Hours of animal fun with funny, challenging, exciting crosswords, word searches, logic puzzles and more. A wonderful day on the farm, regardless of where the kids live!
