FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS
Friends and Neighbors is a matching game that focuses on emotions. Can players help a little girl who’s sad because she’s standing out in the rain or a boy who’s afraid of the dark? Reach into the Helping Bag and pull out a token – can it help someone on the game board? If so, it’s a match! In playing the game and reading about the feelings and needs of the characters, parents can help their children recognize feelings in others – the first step to building empathy. Recommended for ages 3 and up.
