Teach Your Child Bridge.pdf
There is every reason to start children on bridge at an early age. In addition to the obvious benefits to arithmetic and logical reasoning, bridge develops memory, judgement, concentration, planning ability and cooperation. It is a social asset for life, and boosts mental alertness later in life. Not only is it fun to play, but bridge also allows one to make new friends easily and overcomes all kinds of social barriers and physical handicaps. Bridge can be played anywhere and anytime. You will be doing your child a lifelong favour by opening the door to the world of bridge.
