The game of reading and remembering

An entertaining introduction to children’s literature across the ages, Bookworm is a charming and challenging game for all the family. A passage from a children’s classic is read aloud, followed immediately by four questions based on particulars mentioned in that passage.

As the young are often so much better than adults at listening carefully and recalling the specific details of a story, Bookworm can be played as equals by players of very different ages. And where a child cannot yet read, players can play in teams.

Players: 3-8

Ages: 8+
