My Review

 

I am so happy to have had to opportunity to review a game that is not only fun, but educational!  With the end of the school year just around the corner, I am trying to plan activities to keep my daughter learning during the long break. This game will be a perfect addition to the learning tools that I will use this summer. My daughter will be entering the second grade next year and I know this game will really help introduce her to geography and become familiar with it. We have had quite a bit of rain over the past few weeks, which has set the perfect mood for playing board games. I have really enjoyed playing this game with my daughter, as it’s not fast paced and I can really help teach her new things.  I am anxious to see all the benefits that will come from playing this game and see what information my daughter hes retained. This is a wonderful game to help teach your child about the world and I absolutely recommend you add it to your collection of games. We all know that a child learns best when they’re having fun and this game is guaranteed to keep them learning!http://missfrugalmommy.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/atwg31.png
