Savannah announced a short while ago that she wanted to learn to read....(insert panic here - exactly HOW do I go about teaching her to read?). So we bought some Bananagrams....sort of a portable Scrabble-esque creation consisting of lettered tiles inside a nifty banana-shaped bag.
We build words...nonsense and real....and generally have a good time. She keeps wanting to play, so we must be doing something right!
PS. I highly recommend them for anyone who loves playing with words (as I do)..its heaps of fun and if you have readers, then the actual game will be a blast!
