When Madison was only a couple years old, we enrolled in a “Mommy and Me” group. It was designed to help little kids learn to communicate better. We did crafts, enjoyed story time, played outside and learned to interact with other kids. One of the things I really enjoyed was seeing how well she responded to some of the books. I have vivid memories of Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by Eric Carle. It was my first introduction to his work but far from the last. I watched my girls grow up with his iconic characters through books, presentations at school and even board games. I’ve been a fan ever since.
We’re fortunate that University Games has agreed to provide World of Eric Carle On the Farm game from their Briarpatch line as a prize in this year’s Mega Giveaway. If you have young children to shop for this holiday season, check out these engaging games to supplement the books they’re probably already familiar with.
