Before I began writing for children I experimented with design, and took a series of classes at Rhode Island School of Design, one of which was 2-Dimensional Design. One of my portfolio requirements was to design a game board.
I wish I'd had this book back then - because there, on page 94, is a wonderful way to make a game board, complete with lore and images of some of the earliest boards.
And that's what this book is filled with. Beautiful and artistic projects, with stunning visuals and fun histories. And, hey, there are 52 of these projects, so you and the kids could spend an entire year, one week at a time, having a blast.
If you comment on this or on any of the other tour stops (see below) you'll be entered in contests to win a copy of this must-have book. For this stop, please leave a comment with contact info and whether you've posted to other social media.
