The Funky Monkey Favorites!

Thumbs Up! is such a blast to play with your kids!  It's time to race to scoop the loops!  The goal of the game is to be the first to stack different colored rings on your thumb based on the order shown on each challenge card.  It's not as easy as it seems!

The 50 challenge cards require each player to focus on the order of numbers to match their colors correctly.  Different variations of play make this a must have game for parties, family game night and in the classroom!  It's fun for all ages 6 and up, 2-6 players.  The play time is 10 minutes.  What a great way to improve visual perception skills, focus and attention and processing speed.

Whether you call it imagination or magic, everything Sophie draws comes to life.  One day when Sophie is feeling lonely, she draws herself a friend.  But the polar bear cub is not very happy in Sophie's room where it's just too warm.  So Sophie tries again.  However, the duck wants to swim in a pool full of water, and the giraffe is too tall for her tiny room!  Once the elephant shows up, things begin to get a little too wild and Sophie demands that everyone goes outside.  In the backyard, Sophie meets someone new, someone who just happens to be an expert lion trainer.  It looks like Sophie's magic has paid off!  

This creative book will teach your child how to combat loneliness with persistence, creativity and a little imagination.  The watercolor illustrations are beautiful and the sweet journey of friendship is the perfect story for little ones.  I can't wait to share this with my students next year.  Sophie's Animal Parade is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Indiebound.
