Book-Based Map Scramble and Other Fun with Word Games

All the word games at KidsReads.com are based on kids' favorite books.

Have you read The Royal Diaries? The settings are in different countries around the world. In this word scramble, you unscramble the names of the places where each princess lived and match them to the numbers from the map.

What about Lemony Snicket? You can play lots of games like:
• Quiz Yourself on the Series of Unfortunate Events
• Baby Babble Crossword Puzzle
• Act Like Violet: Devise an Invention
• Match Count Olaf With Each of His Disguises
• Find Count Olaf: Uncode the Secret Message
• Draw Your Own Book

There's the Nancy Drew World Scramble and Cleopatra's Pyramid word game (the latter based on the book Cleopatra VII, Daughter of the Nile).

One of my daughters will have nothing to do with word puzzles; the other enjoys them. Sometimes the subject matter will entice the child who's not all that interested.
