You tell a story about Anna and her day-to-day adventures in her little town, and while doing so, you gradually draw a map of the town that she lives in. It’s fun because you’re doing two things at once but they’re still easy to do, and you get to take a little break from what’s going on around you and make up a story about a normal girl in a simple village.
Though not explicitly a kid’s game, Anna is a pleasant example of a young woman with agency for parents and guardians who seek those.
The booklet is available as a part of Passerine Collection “Duet” (two booklets, the other one being Temper) for $8 plus shipping.
You can also purchase “Duet” alongside its sister collection “Baguette” in the store and save a little on shipping.
