I don't know how many of you remeber this, but a few years ago some of the ladies on the boards put together clues for each FIAR book and used it as an end of the year review. We are going to do this this afternoon with Vol. 1. I normally lay out all the books on the floor that we have rowed and then start giving clues to see if my ds remembers which book it is. I will post the clues in another post below. I don't have vol. 4 clues so maybe someone else has them to share? If not maybe we can start a thread to list clues that we come up with for vol. 4.

We just finished the game and my ds knew every single book!:eek: :eek: I was shocked that he remembered so much because he isn't much for detail. On some of the books I only had to read the first clue. And what was even more amazing is that my older ds (who hasn't rowed these books for a couple of years or more) remembered them too!

Even if you skipped around you can use these...I just laid out the books that we did (we have done all of Vol. 1 and a few of vol. 2) and then read the clues for only the books we have done.
