2002 Award
WordXchange
(Prodijeux Inc. $28.95 Score:) Fans of Scrabble, Upwords and other Word games will find this an interesting and challenging variation. It's harder than Upwards and different from Scrabble. Players create words of three letters or more. Opponents can steal words by adding at least one letter to make a new word. Players cannot add S to nouns but they can to verbs. Can be played by 2,3,4 players or by teams. We think some 10's will enjoy this- others may benefit from playing on teams with older players. Game takes about 30 minutes and comes with a timer for rounds. We suggest playing with out the timer for beginners. 866-FUN-WORD.

Age: Early School Years,Later School Years. Award Year: 2002.

Problem is, there's a blizzard blowing up and there's some question of how Hannah will get home. Not to worry, they won't go hungry, what with all the treats their loyal readers along the way bring. Among them is a child in a wheeled chair (a nice touch, since such children are often left out of picture books. This is a warm inter-generational book that puts books and caring at the center of the holiday season. They say 4-7. we'd say more like 5-8.
