One and All!

Thank you for visiting our blog. We have a few things going on that we would like to mention.

If you have heard about us in the newspaper, we need to clarify one thing. PERC was started in the Alpine School district, but it's patrons (users) are not limited to the Alpine School District. PERC is available for every and any adult (or teen--with adult signature). Our services are for every adult who has access to the Orem Library, where we are located. There is no library card needed and items are due back within a week.

If you are a frequent user of PERC, we acknowledge that you already know how the system works and we look forward to seeing you again and again!

We will also be featuring the Teen Summer Game Days, this summer. If you have teenagers, this will be something to look forward to.

If you have not been to PERC, come down to the Orem Library and see what we are about!
We are happy to serve you, and we look forward to seeing you!

The journey to high self-esteem

The name of this game is "The Dinosaurs journey to High Self-Esteem." Take your child on a fun adventure! Teaching them and increasing their self-esteem without having to lift a finger (except to move the game pieces ;) ). This board game will help your child think about things that matter and will give you the opportunity to teach your child appropriate ways to interact with other children.
This game includes a colorful board and dinosaur game pieces which are visually stimulating!
The colored cards have different areas to building your child's self esteem!
Talk with your child about topics that may not come up very often in your day to day interactions. This game is useful as you are able to learn about where your child stands on values and how you can teach them, what you feel is right.

This is an amazing cooperative board game for parents and children. Children ages 5-12 can play and understand game cards easily. There can also be 2-6 players at a time.
