MaryEllen says, “The English language is so full of descriptive, colorful words, and I want my children to be able to harness as many of those words as they can in their writing! But they can’t do that if they don’t know what those words are. That’s why I am so happy to have discovered Marie’s Words.” Read the rest of her review at Christian Homeschool Family.
Lacey says, “This game is certainly an educational game and it’s not really disguised as anything else. But it’s not a drudgery or a bore, by any means. Marie’s Words is a vocabulary building game that can be played in several different ways. It can be used alone or it can be played as a game with several variations.” Read the rest of her review at So Every Day.

What if there was a fun way to work on vocabulary that also made remembering definitions easier? That’s where Marie’s Words steps in.
