    What will you learn this fall?


    We have many incredible books about resistors and change makers of all ages; come check them out at The Learnary.
    We think it is important to talk about change, resistance, and innovation, as well as the work and risk that is involved.

    New at The Learnary: Tiny Polka Dot! A numbers card game made by the great people at Math4Love.  

    This may be the best number game for young kids I have seen! 6 different piles of numbers in different formats to build play and nimbleness with numbers. It comes with 16 different games to play, and has the possibility for creating many more.
    Recommended ages 3 - 8. 
    Come in to The Learnary and ask to play our demonstration game. 

    It includes a guide to grownups, which we love: 1. Learning takes time! 2. Think out loud. 3. Follow their lead. 4. Use your fingers 5. Help Less. 6. Play!
