Summary: I bought this game for my 7 year old. (First game) And she didn't really understand it at first. I figured out that due to all the reading, so she was a bit discouraged. But as I started reading with her and explaining how get up and get going, she actually enjoyed it! This was a bit above her reading level, but hey, how else do they learn and grow!? Now she plays on her own and the enjoyment of the game encourages her to spend extra time trying to read the words!
