Good Morning Farm
Every parent understands the value of ensuring that their young children have a solid foundation when it comes to a skill like math. So when testers discovered Good Morning Farm by Zeno, they were definitely intrigued. Suggested for children ages 2-5, this simple, easy-to-follow game is designed to capture your young child’s imagination and start fostering an interest in math. It’s a toy that is ready to go as soon you open the Velcro closure! The directions are extensive, but they are straightforward and easy to follow, using photos that make them easy to understand. While the game comes with many pieces such as farm animals, cards, fold-out mats, a spinner, dice, etc., they all store away neatly in the box. There is even an extra farm animal in the event one gets lost. Depending on your child’s age and attention span, you may choose to play the game on three levels – addition, subtraction, or both. The game helps to easily explain and teach addition and subtraction of numbers 1-10 while keeping little ones entertained with bright colors, various types of animals, and a depiction of farm life during both the day and night. Even if your child has trouble following the rules, there is plenty about the game to keep their interest and engage their imagination. The game does require some concentration and adherence to rules. This might not be in your two-year-old’s wheelhouse, so we suggest that you take that into consideration.
