Peaceable Kingdom Sunny and Stormy Day Book & Game

July 6, 2017

 

 

(Peaceable Kingdom $17.99)

 

Sunny and Stormy Day is not so much about the weather—but rather the sunny and stormy feelings that are part of everyday life. The idea here is to help children express these ups and downs and perhaps even see them as less than earth shattering, as they may seem at first flush. The book (included in the game box) pictures typical ups and downs of a child’s day…the sunny time of playing ball vs the not so sunny fun moment of a ball hitting your head; the sunny time of building a block tower and the not so sunny time when it gets knocked over. To match the images in the book there is a set of cards that can be paired and talked about. The cards can be used in one game for simple matching pairs or played as a cooperative concentration game that involves memory. There are two variations of the latter game that add a new dimension to the classic matching game. There is also a little pouch designed to hold sunny and story tokens that are to be used to talk about personal ups and downs of the day. Using the book and game combo is an innovative way of playing with a very old game concept in a new and fresh way while supporting social skills and emotional feelings. 3 and up.
