Riddles, in addition to being a traditional and charming type of text, have a particular appeal for the little ones. Why? Well, because of its sounds, its rhymes, its humorous tones … and, above all, because of that surprise factor that supposes guessing the result of them. As if it were a detective game, the little ones want to feel part of a whole, which means challenging themselves and mentally testing themselves, as the older ones do.

These fun word games , in addition to being excellent entertainment, help to develop very important skills and abilities, such as the development of logical sense or the increase and improvement of the level of vocabulary acquired.

Another benefit of riddles for the little ones is that they are very short, which allows children not to get impatient (something very common in them) and to discover the ending quickly and effectively, unlike in a story , where many times they are unable to calmly wait for the end. Its brevity also favors that they can be easily memorized by the little ones, which will delight them and will motivate them when transmitting these riddles to third parties.
