Like the original 12+ Pathwords game, solving these word puzzles is a matter of searching through the letter grid to find the word shapes to match the translucent tetris-like pieces you're trying to fit into the grid space. But the words you're looking in tihs version offer an easier vocabulary, better suited to six year olds. And if some of the words are still a little too challenging for your child, we offer the same tip: provide your child with a master list of words to use as a reference. You can even be a little tricky about it: include a few extra words not on any of the puzzles, and leave out a number of the commeon words that are. Since they don't know which words might be in any given puzzle, you aren't really giving hints to solve the puzzle, so much as bringing your child up to speed with the vocablary - especially if you also tell them what the unfamiliar words mean. A great learning opportunity and an excellent collection of word puzzles.
