I bought Junior Scrabble for my 8 year old son at Christmas. He loves Monopoly, but I don't like how long it takes to play! Although Ben doesn't really enjoy reading or spelling, he really likes playing this game. I have had to suggest some words for him, but he still enjoys it, because of the tokens you collect, so it still has a competitive element.
I would recommend this game. I think, with support, Junior Scrabble encourages children to play with words, and develop spelling skills. However, I think it should be purchased as a game to enjoy, not just an educational resource.
Good value! Good fun! Good game!
