Our Horn Lake store manager picked Flag Frenzy! $13.99   What our manager says: With the 2018 Winter Olympics right around corner, this card game is perfect for helping students learn the countries and their flags.

Our Germantown store manager’s pick: Cross Section Models $19.99 What our manager says: I hated science when I was in school.  It was so abstract and full of odd words and diagrams in a book.  Now I see all of the wonderful tools to spur on the creativity and curiosity of children that it almost makes me wish I could go back to school and re-learn science!  Some of the hands-on learning implements for a teacher to have in the classroom are the Cross Section Models.  There are anatomy models; the eye, the heart, the...
