Francesca spent the weekend visiting some dear friends who have young children and no television set. The children do things like read and color and play with dolls and board games. Imagine!
Anyhow, they had a board game which Francesca now plans to buy for her dear nieces and nephews. It looks like a regular answer-the-questions-correctly-to-work-your-way-around-the-board trivia game, but with an ingenious twist: THERE ARE DIFFERENT QUESTIONS FOR DIFFERENT AGES OF KIDS, so that everyone gets questions on his or her own level. No more of this “it’s not fair that she always wins because she’s older” stuff. There are questions for first graders, second graders, third graders, etc through sixth grade.
So, dear Big Girls, if you have childrens in your life who complain of being bored, get them this board! (ha, Francesca puns! Badly, though. Sorry.). It is available from Amazon here. There are DVD versions available for grades grades 1-3 or 3-5. Extra question cards about America, for ages 9 and up, are also available, as is a special version for the car.
Francesca says: Have fun!
