Ravensberger & PAL Award

My Ravensburger map of the USA has won a PAL award. I am thrilled!

Ravensburger USA floor puzzle by Carla Daly

As I brought out this 3 by 2 foot puzzle, my little 3 year-old friend declared, The United States of America!” and proceeded to recite the Pledge of Allegiance! He loved naming the animals like lobster, moose, orca and bear and seeing where they live. Designed for children 3 years and up, this puzzle has several levels of learning to it. Young ones can increase their animal vocabulary and learn where an elk, grizzly bear or beaver might live while a little older child can read the states and  bodies of water and learn their location. As usual, the hallmark Ravensburger quality including colorful engaging graphics as well as sturdy, thick pieces allow this puzzle to stand up to classroom use too.
