'This is the House that Jack Built' book based reading game

This simple game is based on the traditional rhyme. Begin by sharing the rhyme with the children. Each child has a house board. A set of cards per player is spread randomly in the centre of the table. The children take turns to turn over a card and match it to their board. The winner is the one who covers all the characters first.
