Burning Books loves this cooperative board game that teaches kids (and their grownups) about healing herbs! And the bonus digital downloads make it easy and fun to take what you've learned to the outside world.
Wildcraft! is a beautifully illustrated, nature-based, cooperative game created in the tradition of the classic board games.
Grandma needs huckleberries to bake a pie. You and your cousins embark on an adventure up the mountain to collect berries as well as herbs she uses. Will you all harvest the right plants to help with the trouble you run into along the way? Will you make it back before nightfall? The only way to win is by helping each other out.
Wildcraft! teaches 27 important healing herbs and edible plants. The game also teaches teamwork, for you will rely on each other’s knowledge of plants and good fortune to make it to the Huckleberry Patch and safely back to Grandma’s.
