Orchard is a game that's quite easy to play. Your preschooler will find it enjoyable without realizing that they are learning in the process. It teaches your child strategy and techniques on how to beat the raven, and it can be used to teach colors, counting, matching, and other preschool skills as well.
The game rules are simple for young kids to comprehend. One of the best things about this game is that everyone wins. You don't aim to beat other players; instead, it is a cooperative game, perfect for little four-year-olds, who struggle with their emotions more than most ages do when they don't end up as the winner. This is a wonderful age for learning the essence of working together as a team to achieve the same goal - in this case, beating The Raven.
The board pictures a cute little orchard with charming fruits. The pieces are nice and durable, except for the fruit basket--which is not really essential for the game--but it may be helpful to find a special place to keep all the little pieces.
