Hardcover, 12 pages, Kane Miller Books

Juvenile Nonfiction / Science & Nature / Earth Sciences
Ages 5 And Up

These are both pop-up books. What’s Below? also has a pop-down effect. Both have text but my little guy was all chatter, chatter about what he saw, so the text I only read to myself. Each and every page he stated, “wow”. There are five scenes in each book. Both books are recommended 🙂

Coloring and pop-ups, together at last!
 
First, color the animals in the eight double-page spreads. Then find the pop-up parts in the folder in the back of the book. Color them, then press them out. Fold and glue to the spreads as directed. Presto! You’ve made your own pop-ups!
 
The press-outs’ folder can be hidden once you’ve finished. It’s a great rainy day project, and lots of fun for kids – and parents!

Nicely done with images that are simple but interesting. The pages are just the right thickness for coloring and folding. A pocket in the back keeps pop-up parts stored until ready to complete. This is a great resource for kindergarten and first grade home school art or for family time fun. Highly recommend.

Wise Alec expansion and travel packs are all the fun and education of the original Wise Alec game but in a small portable package. Each game provides challenging and thought provoking questions along with fun and active Wise Alec cards to spice the game up! These packs can either be played on their own or combined to create a complex trivia experience! Each pack includes 300 questions in two levels of difficulty so everyone can play together. Wise Alec cards throw in tongue twisters, brain teasers, exercises, and activities that are geared to each subject. No game board means this game is road ready. No table required!

The two editions we played were Body Works and Bright Ideas.

These editions can be played with the game board if you have the Wise Alec Family Trivia Game or they can be played as is. We actually enjoy playing them without the board. They are compact games that are easy to store and to travel. The box is sturdy and has a magnetic closure that keeps everything neatly inside. The directions are conveniently located on the inside cover of the box.  Every card contains two questions. One worth 3 points and one worth 7 points.  It’s interactive, educational, and adaptable allowing you to alter the directions to suit your players. (younger players might benefit from using the easier questions while still collecting higher points)

And Wise Alec Junior 

This game, ages 4+, is actually four games in one. Memory, Matching, Action, and Storytelling games are for one or more players. We especially liked the matching game. This game of counting and quick wits is even entertaining for teenagers!!

I recommend these games for gift giving, home school, and for family time.
