This game is a terrific way to teach young children new three-letter words, and to build confidence in spelling and reading the ones they already know. Plus, it takes a scant twenty minutes to play. Designed with easily distracted kids in mind, What's Gnu? involves a lot of shouting and giggling, plus a clever contraption called the "Letter Getter." Visit the game's website and you can download an extensive list of common three-letter words in the English language, then get gaming! (ThinkFun, 2-6 players, $15.00)
