New at your Library: Brain Quest and Fandex Family Field Guides
CHECK OUT OUR NEW COLLECTION OF BRAIN QUEST QUESTION AND ANSWER CARD DECKS.
Each set contains decks of cards, held together at the bottom with a grommet. Questions are on one side of the card, and the answers are on the next card, so kids can play it alone or with friends. In this fast-paced world, it's a way to take a brain break with your children, have some quiet time, and make learning fun. “It’s Fun to Be Smart!” is the slogan and philosophy behind these fast-paced, curriculum-based educational games that challenge kids on the stuff they need to know. Choose from 20 different sets, for preschoolers on up to 7th graders.
ANOTHER NEW COLLECTION: FANDEX FAMILY FIELD GUIDES
50 full color die-cut cards, bound together, put knowledge at your fingertips. In the Dinosaurs deck, each dinosaur is illustrated in amazingly life-like detail, accompanied by information on size, diet, and lifestyle. This deck also includes key paleontologists, fossil-finding methods, and a glossary. Or try The Wonders of the World, for an introduction to our most magnificent buildings and monuments. From Egyptian pyramids to the International Space Station (the only man-made wonder not on earth), it covers 4,500 years of world history. There are 22 family-friendly sets available.
You'll find both Brain Quest and Fandex in the Youth sections at all Branches and Downtown. Look for the bright green bags, hanging near the red Book-and-CD Kits.
