Thank you to Donna Hart of Barefoot Books for providing me with product in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions shared are my own.
This week's weather forecast is full of thunderstorms and gloomy weather. Usually that would fill me with dread but after so many days spent outside in the upper 90's, I'm welcoming it. What a great time to relax indoors, bonding with my daughters.

This was my first experience with Barefoot Books; their online catalog is impressive. With so many great choices, I was happy to have Donna to help! She had great suggestions for my two young daughters.
Two floor puzzles and a fishing game
This one first!!
My four year old daughter has always been fascinated by maps, so I wasn't surprised when she picked up the Our World Jumbo Floor Puzzle to do first. I thought she would need help but she did a great job putting it together all by herself!
Big pieces, perfect for little hands
She was really proud of herself after the puzzle was complete! Since we have family living in different parts of the world we had a fun time exploring the map together.
Clean-up is a breeze
N was so excited after the first puzzle, she wasn't ready to stop. Luckily we had the Jungle Seek-and-Find Puzzle waiting. This one has more pieces that are a bit smaller, she asked for my help getting started then had a great time completing it by herself.
"Can you help, mama?"
My two year old was ready to join in on the fun, (and I was ready to start cooking dinner) so we took out the Enchanted Fishing Game. I really love how beautiful the game is, it's very zen. There's no instructions included so I just opened it up and let the girls have at it. Not many things will hold both of their attention for long, but this did- impressive!
